Course description

Critical Thinking

You are your thoughts. The quality of your life is therefore based on the quality of your thinking, but we rarely question it critically. We think and act out of routines, impulses, emotion, or persuasion within our comfort zones rather than doing what makes genuine sense. Since most people have an aversion to change, questioning the status quo makes people nervous. Conclusions of critical thinkers are also often unpopular as they threaten the ego of everyone involved. Rather than rock the boat, they may keep good ideas quiet. Understand how to apply all of this in your everyday life. We have Critical Thinking courses available in this series that focus on introduction to critical thinking, managing deception and fallacies, persuasive arguments, checklists for rational decisions, optimal understanding and explanations.

This course is now launched in Adaptive Learning format.

Training content

We have five Critical Thinking courses available in this series that focus on:

Introduction to critical thinking

Critical thinking means taking control of your thoughts to see if they make sense and applying self-corrective thinking to reach the highest level of rational reasoning and fair-mindedness. We all know the consequences of unchecked and undisciplined thinking. Understand what critical thinkers do and know the three levels of thinking. We will help you to think fair, open-minded, unbiased, unprejudiced and work to overcome personal biases.

Managing deception and fallacies

Fallacies are incorrect conclusions drawn from incorrect reasoning in an argument. One problem with deception is that the perpetrators often don’t know they’re doing it. They believe what they’re saying. Discover how to identify the traits of sloppy thinking and the impact it will have. We will give you guidelines to move sloppy thinking to elegant thinking where they will help you reach your goal.

Persuasive arguments

You can make better sense of what you read, hear and become more persuasive by understanding arguments. The purpose of an argument is to make a valid point or persuade thinking. Understand the two parts of an argument and how to use evidence to support a claim. Understand how you can evaluate a persuasive argument by focusing on pinpointing the claim, identify evidence, test the evidence and identify conclusions.

Checklists for rational decisions

Rational decisions are based on reasonable, intelligent thinking. Discover how rational thinking can improve the quality of your life and help you to take a reasonable approach in knowing what to think. Understand why a checklist can help you in complex situations and apply our steps make rational decisions.

Optimal understanding and explanations.

Arguments are used to persuade and contain a claim and conclusion and explanations are used to increase understanding by finding the best reasoned answer through a learning process. Understand the four steps for optimal understanding and how to use questioning to increase your level of understanding. Discover the power of reflection as it will help you to make the correct decisions.
