Dynamic Learning: Designing a Hidden Pedagogy to Enhance Critical Thinking Skills Development
Rivers, Christine; Kinchin, Ian
Management Teaching Review, v4 n2 p148-156 Jun 2019
Practitioners consider critical thinking skills to be vital for survival in business. Business schools should use such insight wisely by strategically embedding critical thinking skills in the curriculum at module and program levels. Practitioners even go further and say it is the one aspect that cannot be automated and probably the most valuable in functioning as an oppositional power to the "shallows of the internet." However, we have to keep in mind that developing critical thinking skills is a learning process in itself, one that is cyclical, multilinear, and omnidirectional, and it needs to be integrated as a pedagogy, not just a learning outcome, so it can become an academic habit of mind. The article demonstrates how critical thinking can be enhanced by embedding it as a pedagogy at module level.
