Critical Thinking: Its Relationship in Education and Training.
Campbell, Dennis E.; Macey, James R.
This paper addresses the concept of critical thinking and its utility in education and training. It is divided into three segments. First, the paper defines critical thinking by establishing what critical thinking is and is not. Second, the relationship between critical thinking and education is explored. The goal of education is reviewed, and then examples of techniques to teach critical thinking are covered. Third, the notion of critical thinking in training is examined. The analysis begins with a review of the literature regarding the term "training" and suggests the need for a broader definition. The section ends with suggestions for how critical thinking can be applied in training situations. (Author/YLB)
