Do you want to revise your critical reading, writing and thinking skills?
Criticality in an academic setting involves utilising different viewpoints to assess an argument or theory. Critical thinking, reading, and writing are key skills that should be applied to all aspects of your studies. Join Dr Eimear O'Connor for this workshop which will provide you with the tools you need to question and learn with an open mind, reflect different arguments and perspectives in your writing, and use evidence to inform your own opinions. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions, share your learning, and network with other students.
This workshop is part of a lunchtime series. Each session can be booked individually.
