This highly interactive seminar will help participants develop

lifetime, this seminar will provide a strong intervention through
discussion, small group activities and individual tasks to reinforce
good thinking behavior and to identify poor thought processes.
Participants will learn that questions are the driving force in critical thinking. Questions must be guided by purpose and a measure of doubt to challenge assumptions. Clear thinking goes hand in hand with clear writing and thorough reading. Participants will examine critical thinking as it requires the assessment of information using some criteria including the credibility of source, the distinction of fact and opinion and the extrapolation of implications.

At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to:
