A very useful and readerble resource for undergraduate students
this is a terrific text for student-teachers in FE and HE. I recommended this for their wider reading
Added to reading list for subject specialists
This is a useful book for students who are struggling with understanding learning outcomes which ask them to 'demonstrate a critical understanding of x' to 'critically evaluate y'. A good book to have on the 'additional reading' list. The activities are accessible for our undergraduate students.
This book is a study guide for all those undertaking academic study on how to improve critical thinking skills.
There are some great reflective tasks.
A clear and concise publication that covers a good range of study related topics at an introductory level. I will be referring students to this text through the module
