Critical Thinking College and University Education Practice-Oriented Short Workshop

Cancelled Critical Thinking: Do teachers/publishers truly understand it?

Sat, Jul 9, 14:40-15:05 Asia/Tokyo

Location: F21

Critical thinking is a vitally important concept which has sadly been hijacked as an educational buzzword and misused to the point of rendering it near meaningless. And yet it remains a needed yet undeveloped thinking "skill" in people interacting in any language: native, second or foreign. Critical thinking entails getting an understanding of the subtext: the assumptions and veiled messages that are loaded into all forms of discourse. This workshop will explore this further.
