Critical thinking 3: Building an academic argument

This workshop will extend and build upon the critical thinking skills covered in the Critical Thinking I and 2 workshops. The focus will be on advanced critical thinking skills – in particular, what is meant by a sound academic argument, and how to construct a sound academic argument – so as to avoid feedback such as ‘good knowledge and understanding, but where is your argument’. These skills will be linked to critical writing and critical reading skills.

Critical thinking III


We recommend that students take Critical Thinking I & II before attending this workshop.

To book a place on this workshop see the current Study Skills timetable or the MyBirkbeck academic development workshops.
