About This Course
Objective of the course: To help participants develop critical thinking skills.
Critical thinking, the ability that makes us make the best decisions when deciding what to believe or what to do, is a skill that is at the top of the list of the skills needed to be a successful professional or worker in the XXI century. This skill is also very useful regarding one's personal life. Most of us have had little or no formal instruction in developing this skill. This course aims to present the basic concepts and processes that will help participants develop a structured path to make sound decisions when deciding what to believe or what to do in their professional and personal lives.
