GASA 2019: Critical thinking skills (Weds)

Venue: Birkbeck Main Building, MAL B33

This event has ended.

Critical thinking skills are the cornerstone of studying at university. This workshop will consider what is meant by critical thinking, and what is expected of you as a critical thinker. You will also encounter the key questions with which to approach critical reading and writing in the initial stages of your studies. You will also consider how to integrate the reading into your writing, so as to avoid feedback such as ‘too descriptive, more analysis needed’.

This workshop will repeat on Monday 16, Wednesday 18, Thursday 19 and Saturday 21 September.

Please note these workshops are open to Birkbeck College students only. 

The Get Ahead, Stay Ahead (GASA) series of workshops is primarily targeted at new students beginning their studies in 2019-2020, though any Birkbeck students may attend.

Study skills workshops for all students also run throughout the academic year.

Workshop bookings will open in early July 2019.
