Everyone recognises the value of critical thinking but there is much controversy about what exactly it is, or how to achieve it. What’s more, we all think we are good critical thinkers. But are we? How could we tell? Understanding what is meant by 'critical thinking' is a essential step towards understanding how we can develop it, in ourselves and others. 

Public event organised by UQ Alumni.

The event begins with morning tea, and concludes with an optional lunch (additional cost). If you have any questions about this event, please email uqalumni@uq.edu.au.
