MindEdge Offers "Introduction to Critical Thinking" Course

December 15, 2006


Many organizations have identified developing employee critical thinking skills as crucial to effective decision-making in the 21st century. To meet that need, MindEdge (www.mindedge.com) has developed a new course, "Introduction to Critical Thinking," available at the Winchester Center for Management Development (www.execlearn.com).

"Introduction to Critical Thinking" introduces learners to the importance of critical thinking in the business world. Critical thinking is an intellectual model for reasoning through issues to reach well-founded conclusions about them. Asking questions is at the heart of critical thinking.

This program is designed to help learners define and identify critical thinking and reasoning skills and develop those skills through real-world case studies, interactive exercises, and checklists.

After completing this set of modules, learners will be able to:

  • Define critical thinking, reasoning, and logic.
  • Ask appropriate questions for critical thinking.
  • Define the logical approach to critical thinking.
  • Identify and overcome barriers to critical thinking.
  • Articulate common reasoning fallacies.
  • Understand critical thinking as it pertains to the workplace.
  • Apply critical thinking skills to not-for-profit, corporate, and governmental settings.

MindEdge, a learning company, provides leadership, management, communication and educational solutions to organizations to help them meet their objectives.

MindEdge Next Generation Learning supports fully online, blended online and on-site programs used by corporations, associations, business schools, colleges and universities and continuing education programs. Academic clients include Harvard Business School and Boston University, as well as major corporations.

The Winchester Center for Management Development, at www.execlearn.com, an innovative website for online business and management education, offers MindEdge courses aimed at improving the management competencies of corporate learners.
