About this Unit
This unit is designed for high-achieving students who may be enrolled in Advanced degrees or the Bachelor of Applied Leadership and Critical Thinking. This unit provides students with an opportunity to understand and develop high-level critical thinking skills; skills that are essential for success in occupations now and in the future. Students will engage with theoretical frameworks and concepts using an interdisciplinary approach, inspiring students to think and act outside the silos of their disciplines. Throughout the unit, students will consider how they think as opposed to how they think they think (biases and heuristics). They will also develop an understanding of the importance of critical thinking and ways to suppress a tendency to rationalise.
