Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
Goal 02 - Critical Thinking
  • Gather factual information and apply it to a given problem in a manner that is relevant, clear, comprehensive, and conscious of possible bias in the information selected.
  • Imagine and seek out a variety of possible goals, assumptions, interpretations, or perspectives which can give alternative meanings or solutions to given situations or problems.
  • Analyze the logical connections among the facts, goals, and implicit assumptions relevant to a problem or claim; generate and evaluate implications that follow from them.
  • Recognize and articulate the value assumptions which underlie and affect decisions, interpretations, analyses, and evaluations made by ourselves and others.

Description
Meets MN Transfer Curriculum Goal Area 2 - Critical Thinking - Intro to Critical Thinking is a practical course in critical thinking. It develops monological and multilogical and ethical reasoning skills and explores creative and logical approaches to problem solving. It examines how our thinking skills affect our personal identities, our relationships with others, and our understanding of culture. It analyzes systems of ideas, multiple perspectives on issues, and differing analytical approaches. It develops the higher order thinking skills, intellectual values, and the qualities of thought important for personal integrity, academic success, and effective citizenship. Student Learning Outcomes: * Solve problems using creative thinking and logical reasoning. * Distinguish between facts, assumptions, inferences and implications in beliefs and arguments. * Apply effective problem solving techniques to monological and multilogical problems. * Apply strategies for reducing the effect of bias and prejudice on thinking. * Analyze the Elements of Thought (Purpose, Questions, Information, Inferences, Assumptions, Point of View, Concepts, and Implications) in decision making. * Apply ethical reasoning to problem solving situations. * Apply the Intellectual Virtues (Intellectual Humility, Empathy, Integrity, Courage, Autonomy, Perseverance and Confidence in Reason) to the evaluation of beliefs, arguments, and theories.
