Critical Thinking Online Course - Outline

Module One - Getting Started

The first module is an overview of the online critical thinking certification. This course is designed for anyone who wants to learn more about creative and critical thinking, whether that's critical thinking through art, critically interpreting randomized clinical trials, developing skills in the science of everyday thinking, or solving problems with creative testing.

Module Two - Components of Critical Thinking

The concept of critical thinking is nothing new, and it is a critical component of decision making. It is more than just making judgments - it’s also how we take action. In this module, we discuss the components of critical thinking.

  • Applying Reason -The ability to reason is a key critical thinking component. Reasoning requires logic to determine what follows what.

  • Open-mindedness - is essential to learning. It is important to revise current understanding when relevant evidence or arguments go against it. It enables us to learn by allowing us to be open to alternatives.

  • Analysis - This component allows us to discriminate and access information. The analysis allows us to break down complex ideas and understand new or difficult concepts.

  • Introduction to Logic - Logic and reasoning may appear similar but are not the same. Logic provides the rules for deriving valid conclusions.

Module Three - Non-Linear Thinking

Problems are usually approached following a step-by-step fashion based on critical thinking. However, this is called linear thinking when problems are approached in a different order.

  • Step Out of Your Comfort Zone - Our decisions are often based on past experiences. Non-linear thinking requires us to step out of our comfort zones and discover new things using a different perspective.

  • Don’t Jump to Conclusions - Mistakes are often the results of jumping into conclusions or making decisions even before we have all the facts.

  • Expect and Initiate Change - Nothing stays the same, expect changes and take charge to make this change.

  • Being Ready to Adapt - After accepting that change is inevitable, we must be ready to adapt to these changes.

Module Four - Logical Thinking

Logical thinking requires steps. It is checking the components of arguments and making connections between them which is also called reasoning.

  • Ask the Right Questions - Logical thinking starts with asking the right questions. A logical thinker should begin reasoning by asking many questions. It should start with determining whether the statement is a fact or a value and not confuse the two.

  • Organize the Data Science - In the second step in the logic process we organize the information by making connections. This can include breaking up the information and laying out the premises.

  • Evaluate the Information - After organizing the information, logic dictates that this information be evaluated if it is valid. Conclusions must only be made after the distinction between truth and validity is made.

  • Draw Conclusions - Conclusions are made once data has been collected, organized, and evaluated. Conclusions based on deductive reasoning are made from valid premises, while conclusions based on inductive reasoning are drawn from conclusions or a hypothesis.

Module Five - Critical Thinker (Part 1)

This part of the Critical Thinking Online Certificate course discusses the characteristics of critical thinkers.

  • Active Listening - The best communicators are active listeners.

  • Be Curios – the main goal of a teacher to spark curiosity and engage their students

  • Be disciplined – critical thinking requires reasoning and rationale

  • Be Humble – Humility relates to having an open mind. Arrogance, the opposite of humility, can be a strong barrier to accepting information for what it really is

Module Six - Critical Thinking (Part 2)

In this module, we take a more detailed look into characteristics that help us to improve critical thinking abilities.

  • Seeing the Big Picture – this is about making connections. Ideas increase in significance when it relates to other ideas.

  • Objectivity – this helps us to be more deliberate or thorough. This characteristic helps us to engage more thoughtfully and deliberately.

  • Using Your Emotions – you should not entirely eliminate your emotions when thinking critically. Emotions also play a critical role in critical thinking, but this should not cloud your judgment.

  • Being Self-Aware – we should be aware of our feelings and opinions. This is the starting point of critical thinking.

Module Seven - Evaluate the Information

After looking at some steps in evaluating information using logic, we will take a closer look into how to evaluate information properly.

  • Making Assumptions – these are statements that have no prior proof or evidence. These are generally unstated or mentally held.

  • Watch out for the Bias – this is something innate and often difficult to completely eliminate. However, when thinking critically, we must avoid confirmation bias.

  • Ask Clarifying questions – it is important that we always ask the right questions. But of equal importance is to ask clarifying questions.

  • SWOT Analysis- this can be very useful in helping us think more clearly. This is often used in most business and marketing situations.

Module Eight - Benefits of Critical Thinking

In this part of the course, we discuss some of the benefits of critical thinking, these are:

  • Being More Persuasive – this is the characteristic of being able to influence others. This characteristic is often associated with politicians and salespersons.

  • Better Communication – being an effective communicator helps us improve our persuasiveness. Critical thinking enables us to use language with more clarity.

  • Better Problem Solving – critical thinking is essential to problem-solving. Logic, critical thinking, and problem-solving all use the same cognitive processes.

  • Increased Emotional Intelligence – critical thinking increases emotional intelligence by improving self-awareness

Module Nine - Changing your Perspective

After learning the importance of keeping an open mind, we will examine further the concept of changing our perspective.

  • Limitations of Your Point of View – critical thinking lets you go beyond the limits of your bias and mental blinders.

  • Considering Others' Viewpoint – critical thinking helps us get a better appreciation of another person’s viewpoint and how it promotes objectivity.

  • Influences on Bias – logic helps limit the influences on bias on our conclusions.

  • When New Information Arrives – critical thinking helps organize new information. It helps compartmentalize information into a familiar format.

Module Ten - Problem Solving

In this module, we discuss some steps for problem solving and the importance of critical thinking in finding solutions.

  • Identify Inconsistencies – this can be the result of variances or dissimilarities. It is caused by a natural tendency to remove inconsistencies when solving a problem.

  • Trust Your Instincts – falls into the second stage of problem solving. It can be a valuable element in the creative process when combined with trial and error, informed guesses, and brainstorming.

  • Asking Why – allows you to go beyond the usual information or data.

  • Evaluate the Solution(s) – before proceeding with any solution, it is critical that you first evaluate the solution. Some problems can have several solutions. Determining which one is best helps save time and improve outcomes.

Module Eleven - Putting it all Together

This part of the course discusses how to combine all the skills we have acquired in the earlier modules.

  • Retaining Your New Skills – after learning all the skills needed to develop our critical thinking abilities, we discuss how we could retain these new skills.

  • Always Ask Questions – learning is sparked by the desire to know more. Asking questions leads to possible solutions and answers.
