Module Synopsis
Every human person is engaged in thinking. This claim gives rise to a number of questions, including: “What does it mean to think well and how do we learn to do it?”; “Are there clear criteria for what constitutes excellence in thinking?”; “What is the role of logic in good thinking?”; and “What is the difference between critical, creative, and caring thinking?”. This course sets out to answer these questions by focusing on how excellence in thinking is cultivated and practised both inside and outside the classroom. Accordingly, it aims to equip students with effective pedagogy for promoting such good thinking behaviours and dispositions as: respecting diversity in opinions, identifying values underlying different views, and considering multiple perspectives in making judgements, which are commonly included in the educational aims of many local and foreign curricula. Students will be encouraged to use relevant theoretical knowledge as a tool for reflection on practice, especially in field experience.
