"Confidence in Critical Thinking is a book that bridges the gap between theory and application for both new and established lecturers who wish to recognise their own critical thinking skills, develop them and in turn support the development of their learners. By harnessing new findings from research on design, engagement, goal setting, mindset and the influence of language, each chapter facilitates educators in moving from thinking about these skills as theoretical concepts to practical application. A must-read for those wishing to examine the assumption that critical thinking development happens to all learners, to an equal degree as a natural part of the education process"-- Provided by publisher.
