How To Think for Yourself

Alex Baratta and Tom Chatfield discuss thinking, reading and writing critically

What does it mean to read, write and engage critically in the contemporary context? Authors and researchers Dr Alex Baratta (How to read and write critically, SAGE) and Dr Tom Chatfield (How To Think, SAGE) examine the importance of taking control of your time, attention and engagement; what it means to develop confidence in your own study and thinking skills; and why evidence-based analysis matters more than ever in an age of disinformation, distraction and fake news.

This video covers how to:

  • Approach your studies, work and life inquisitively and critically
  • Take a strategic approach to reading and research
  • Get critical in writing, so you can achieve higher marks
