Professional Training Program on Critical Thinking
This course on Critical Thinking studies a process which is indispensable to all educated persons – the process by which we develop and support our beliefs and evaluate the strength of arguments made by others in real-life situations.
It includes practice in inductive and deductive reasoning, presentation of arguments in oral and written form, and analysis of the use of language to influence thought. The course also applies the reasoning process to other fields such as business, science, law, social science, ethics, and the arts.
Throughout this course, we will review the underlying principles behind critical thinking theory and practice, and provide practical guidance for developing critical thinking skills.
