Critical Thinking in Global Challenges

Free thinking

These videos formed part of a course run by Professor Mayank Dutia and Dr Celine Caquineau from the School of Biomedical Sciences, which aimed to provide the opportunity to better understand what critical thinking is, and to practice and enhance critical thinking skills. The course used the context of some important global challenges that affect us all, and to which we have no clear “correct” solutions: for example, the risk and spread of serious infectious diseases in epidemics in modern societies, the implications of increasing human population on global resources, energy, environment and climate, and the challenges of human health and wellbeing in the modern world. Possible solutions to global issues such as these are hotly debated, and give the perfect setting to practice recognizing and evaluating facts, ideas, opinions and arguments.
