The Critical Thinking module provides videos and quizzes which faculty can use to further contribute to student success—retention, GPA levels, employability, etc. The pack covers five foundational skills for students: Cultural and Citizenship, Research and Source Evaluation Strategies, Using Critical Thinking and Logic, Visual and Quantitative Literacy, and Writing and Communication.
“The role of academic libraries is changing,” says Ian Singer, Credo’s general manager, “and librarians are embracing the opportunity to share their deep knowledge about critical thinking with students who desperately need it for their research. The best part comes with knowing that these skills stay with students long after they hand in their final research paper. The ability to think critically will open up possibilities in their careers and personal lives.”
