Critical thinking

Researchers, academic staff, higher education institutions and industry bodies generally agree that critical thinking is fundamental to not only a meaningful education, but also to being an active and engaged global citizen and a prospective employee. The outcomes of critical thinking instruction can be stated in terms of societal consequences and individual learning, a base statement that can be made for graduate skills in general. There is contestation over is conceptualisation, which has direct implications for its location in teaching and learning processes.
