Can students be taught to think critically?
- Publisher: Centre for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching (CELT), London Metropolitan University
The literature on critical thinking has its roots in different disciplines – philosophy, psychology and education. These separate academic strands have led to the development of different definitions and therefore there has been little consensus on the definition of critical thinking. How to teach and foster critical thinking in students is still an ongoing debate. This has led to confusion among students who in turn do not know what is expected of them. Learners need some definition of critical thinking and even if there is no one definition, we can agree on some of the elements of the critical thinking process.
