Full course description
In this module, you are introduced to an essential life skill called critical thinking. This skill is viewed as being valuable by employers and will help sharpen your key thinking skills. Critical thinking has been defined as the ability "to think in a sophisticated manner to ask questions, define terms, examine the evidence, analyze assumptions, avoid emotional reasoning, resist oversimplification, consider alternative interpretation, and tolerate uncertainty" (Harrington, 2019). The critical thinking process serves as a foundation for making decisions and developing problem-solving skills. Critical thinking is a learning task that requires actively taking in, evaluating, and using information. Critical thinking is an integral part of our everyday life and plays a fundamentally important role in the decision-making process.
