Critical thinking

“Being a critical thinker is both attitude and intellectual skill; that is, one must choose to act like a critical thinker and master the analytical techniques employed by a critical thinker. Some of these attitudes and techniques include:

  • being open-minded
  • being objective
  • seeking root causes
  • viewing a problem from multiple perspectives
  • giving a fair hearing to evidence on multiple perspectives
  • suspending judgement until all pertinent information has been heard
  • listening to contrary views
  • changing conclusion in the face of compelling information.”

[Dick, W., Carey L. and Carey J.O., 2009. The Systematic Design of Instruction. Sevent edition. Page 18.]
