Event description

Critical thinking is an essential skill for academic study and is probably one of the most transferable skills you will develop at university. This webinar will introduce you to the concept of critical thinking and how to apply it to your studies. During the webinar you will explore key definitions of critical thinking, the different levels of criticality, how to analyse sources critically and how to recognise, assess and write critical argument.

By the end of the webinar you will be able to:

  • Explain in basic terms what critical thinking and critical writing mean
  • Give examples of methods to develop critical thinking and critical writing skills
  • Start applying critical thinking methods to your own studies

Who is this webinar for?

Foundation and undergraduate students. If you are about to undertake your first assignment, have had feedback telling you to be more critical and/or want to improve future marks then this webinar can help you.

This webinar is run by a Library Skills Adviser.
