Course Overview

A critical thinking course teaches students to recognize underlying assumptions, viewpoints, and arguments. You will also get the ability to examine a plan or course of action’s benefits and drawbacks critically. As a result, the facilitator will assist you in making the appropriate choices from the start. Understand the distinction between left- and right-brained thought. Eliminate emotion from decision-making, consider both sides of an issue, and develop critical thinking abilities.

Developing critical thinking skills does not include gathering knowledge. A person who has a strong memory and is well-versed in a lot of information is not always effective at critical thinking. A critical thinker can conclude what his knowledge means. He is adept at using data to address issues and locate pertinent sources.

Argumentativeness or being judgmental of others is not the same as critical thinking. Critical thinking can be crucial in cooperative reasoning and constructive tasks, even though it can reveal misconceptions and weak arguments. We may strengthen our arguments, advance our theories, and gain knowledge by using critical thinking. Critical thinking can be used to strengthen organizational procedures and social systems.

Several processes are involved in critical thinking courses, such as recognizing and assessing certain situations, being conscious of any aggravating factors, and considering the potential outcomes of your intentions or actions. To think critically, it’s also important to take into account different viewpoints, both your own and those of others, to determine the resources at your disposal and assess the immediate and long-term repercussions of a specific course of action.
