First entry on Introduction to critical thinking

Workshop Tutor: Austin Griffiths


Overall, the workshop has made me to have a better understanding about how to apply and practice critical thinking in my learning journey. The presentation and activities during the workshop has given simple samples how to be critical especially in reading texts which is an important key point as a student. The workshop has ensured me in term of writing my assignment critically such as types of process of choosing or writing our words (purpose, audience, key information, logical order) and having different points of view (argument and against).


  1. I will apply the critical way process (purpose, audience, key information, logical order) in writing my assignment.

  2. I will prepare a set of challenging questions  or mindset when reading books and articles.

  3. I will use different kinds of perspective either advantages/disadvantages or positive/negative when I am writing my assignment.

    Hi Maria,
    I’m glad the workshop was useful.
    I think you have chosen three practical action points that will be useful for your studies, and will also help you to develop your all round critical approach. Action point 2, on your use of questions when reading, is a very good idea and I look forward to hearing how it helps you. Action points 1 and 3, focusing on your assignment, will certainly be useful.
