DESCRIPTION

Thinking and Writing at University develops and assesses those thinking and literacy skills essential to study at a university level. There is a particular focus on critical thinking and the development of an argument in an essay, as well as information literacy (the ability to collect and evaluate information from appropriate sources).

  • interpreting and presenting arguments.
