Course Description

This introduction to critical thinking provides the background for an understanding of the role of applied reasoning and logic in problem solving. The course defines critical thinking, and identifies common barriers to its use in the academy and the workplace. Further, it establishes the elements of reasoning, and standards of critical thinking that are fundamental to the discipline. The course also allows participants to assess their own critical thinking aptitude and to employ their skills through several case study exercises. This course draws on Gerald Nosich's Learning to Think Things Through (Prentice Hall, 2004), Michael Michalko's Asking the Right Questions: A Guide to Critical Thinking (Pearson, 2006), and Jefferson Flanders; Clarity: Clear Thinking and Writing (MindEdge Press, 2008 forthcoming) (excerpts included).
