We seek it here ... a new perspective on the elusive activity of critical thinking: a theoretical and practical approach

This paper is part of the Discussions in Education Series and is written/produced by Dr Jenny Moon/ESCalate.

This paper is in two parts with the first part being a theoretical discussion and the second part focussing on the practical side. Part One questions what is meant by critical thinking referring to the literature in some detail to build towards a descriptive statement. A particularly helpful aspect of Dr Moon’s writing is the link made between critical thinking and the development of the conceptions of knowledge (epistemological beliefs) which have not been explored fully elsewhere.
