Critical Skills for Academic Assignments: A Student Toolkit 1e (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Based on the authors two decades of experience in lecturing and teaching academic skills within a higher-education setting, the work is a response to the challenges facing today's students in understanding the principles of critical thinking and applying it to their University studies. Critical Thinking for Academic Assignments is an invaluable tool for any student wanting to understand what is meant by critical thinking and how to apply these skills to the different stages of the assessment process.

Unlike most textbooks within this area on the market, it focuses solely upon practical advice rather than adopting a philosophical, more abstract, understanding of critical thinking. This practical approach to the topic allows students to move from lower to higher-level thinking skills.

Written in an engaging and concise style, the work is a guide designed to be accessible to students from across multiple disciplines who want key pieces of information that can be easily translated to their studies. The book is interactive and engaging, raising the student's involvement with the subject area through practical activities and examples. Its easy-to-use structure and approach take's the student on a logical journey starting at the beginning of the assessment process through to engaging with feedback and critical thinking for the job market. At the same time the five-part structure with subchapters allow students to quickly 'dip in' and 'dip out' of any part of the book to meet their own individual learning needs.

While the main focus is on assessment, the text also highlights the importance of these skills for employability
