The launch of our online course in critical thinking is especially significant in the current difficult time, with many learners needing to making use of online resources. In addition, of course, the value of the skills of critical thinking has a particular significance, given the need for decisions, at so many levels, to be made using good judgement. This includes looking critically at evidence, highlighting assumptions that are made, looking for clarity, and being creative in looking for and at options.

If you can see the value of critical thinking, but haven’t had the time or opportunity to develop the skills, then this online course can solve your problem.

The course has been written by Dr Roy van den Brink-Budgen in conjunction with the University of Lancaster Management School.

The course provides a thorough grounding in all of the skills of critical thinking. Each of the 22 lessons includes illustrative material from the international world of business and management. In addition, there are questions in most lessons to enable you to check your understanding of the skills being covered.
