In this paper I discuss efforts I am making to engender critical thinking in an applied ethics module. Employers and governments have long called for graduates with generic, interpersonal, communication, and critical thinking skills . Alongside this, critical thinking has long been associated with more traditional academic goals, and the preparation of the individual for democratic citizenship . The design of the module has been informed by these considerations and the common belief that a problem-based learning approach to teaching and learning is a good way to promote critical thinking. I describe the module and its rationale, and consider some practical issues that will inform the next stage in the module’s development.
