"Critical Thinking" is authored by Jennifer McRobert of Acadia University. The guiding assumption of this course is that not all information is created equal. Through sixteen hours of illustrated audio lectures and interactive exercises, Professor McRobert explains Critical Thinking and gives students experience in its practice. Particpants in this course will learn how to approach information critically and discriminate in a principled way between opinions.
The skills acquired will be useful to students who wish to produce well-reasoned oral and written work of their own in any area. In addition, emphasis on the development of critical skills in real-life contexts means that skills learned in this course will be useful in any program of study or career, in everyday commercial, political, and social decisions, and in just about every situation in which new information is encountered.
