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.
Our experience shows that the course needs to be adjusted to the individual requirements of a higher education institution and its students. If you are interested in discussing that further and to hear how INASP can support you with that, please let us know. Contact: Veronika at firstname.lastname@example.org
