  • About the course and sample version

    INASP’s online self study course 'Questioning as we learn: An introduction to critical thinking’ aims to improve the skills of undergraduate students in higher education when assessing information. They will learn how to analyse and evaluate argumentative text and speech.This will help them with their studies and also increase their employability. 

    For educators who are interested in strengthening their students' critical thinking skills, we have produced a sample version with only the fifth unit, “How to recognize biases and assumptions, and reflect on your own biases and assumptions”. We recommend you read through the sample version and try out the activities to consider how they might fit with your students and your teaching plans.

    The AQHEd-SL project is piloting the course. If you want us to inform you once the pilot has been completed and the course can be rolled out, please send us your contact details. Contact: Veronika at
