Course Overview

In today’s society, many people experience information overload. We are bombarded with messages urging us to believe certain ideas, purchase certain products, support specific causes, and live our lives in this or that particular way. How do you know what to believe? How do you separate the truth from the myths?
The answer lies in critical thinking skills. The ability to clearly reason through problems and to present arguments in a logical, compelling manner has become a key skill for survival in today’s world. With the tools you gain in this course, you will be able to differentiate critical thinking from non-critical thinking, recognise and evaluate assumptions, identify types of faulty reasoning, and apply practical techniques to achieve clarity in thinking and problem solving.
