Product description

Based on the ideas first presented in his book "Developing Critical Thinkers", Stephen D. Brookfield tells how educators, trainers, and managers can enable people to become critical thinkers, people who reflect on the assumptions that underlie their actions and explore alternative ways of looking at the world and living in it. Critical thinking, the process by which we detect and analyze the assumptions underlying the actions, decisions, and judgements in our lives, is an essential skill for adults in these complex times. In this stimulating audiocassette programme, Stephen D. Brookfield tells how people can use this process to become better communicators and decision-makers in every facet of their lives, throughout their lives. Through fast-paced simulations of critical thinking in action, the listener participates in uncovering the assumptions behind the actions of others, analyzing the merits and faults of their assumptions, and exploring possible alternatives for action.
