Critical Thinking

Many of us are familiar with the idea of information overload. The amount of e-mails and messages we get in a day that try to sell us an idea, product, cause, or lifestyle can be overwhelming. How do you know what to believe? How do you separate the good ideas from the bad ones, or figure out what’s best for you when misinformation has become so widespread? Critical thinking training teaches you how to make the most of the information you have, as well as how to present compelling arguments and clearly reason your way to success in the workplace!

SACA’s  one-day Critical Thinking workshop teaches students critical thinking development by identifying their critical thinking style, and how to strengthen and improve that style; how to work through the critical thinking process; develop and evaluate explanations; prepare and present compelling arguments; and how to use effective reasoning techniques to avoid falling into common pitfalls and illogical traps. Including a personal action plan that enables students to refine their critical thinking skills, SACA’s training materials are completely customizable for critical thinking trainers, and are readily available as part of a blended learning solution that combines the flexibility of eLearning with the content-rich courseware. Get ready to stop absorbing, and start thinking!
