Critical Thinking: Tools for Taking Charge of Your Life (Spring 2018)
with Lisa Robertson
We live in a society that mass-produces information. Not all of it is true or well grounded in fact. The key challenge in an information age is to know how to judge the quality of the information, opinions, and arguments that we are exposed to on a daily basis. This includes the ideas, arguments and assertions that we see, hear or read in the news, in coursework, on the job and in all human relations. (Class runs Tuesdays and Wednesdays from March 6 to April 25, no class on 3/27 and 3/28.)
