Description

Critical thinking and writing are skills that are not easy to acquire. The term 'critical' is used differently in social and clinical contexts. Nursing students need time to master the inquisitive and ruminative aspects of critical thinking that are required in academic environments. This learning module outlines what is meant by critical thinking in academic settings, in relation to both theory and reflective practice. It explains how the focus of a question affects the sort of critical thinking required and offers two taxonomies of learning, to which students can refer when analysing essay requirements. The module concludes with examples of analytical writing in reference to theory and reflective practice.

Objectives

The aim of this module is to enable one to have a better understanding of the different types and levels of critical thinking that relate to both theoretical and reflective forms of analytical writing. The module provides a classification of levels of critical thinking and gives examples of analytical writing in the contexts of theory and reflective practice.

On completion of this course you will gain an understanding of:
Define the term ‘critical’ as used in clinical practice.
Outline the differences between ‘being critical’ when analysing theories or concepts and reviewing your experience in nursing.
Use your enhanced understanding of critical thinking to clarify with your tutors what is required in your coursework assignments.
Describe different levels of critical thinking and the purpose of each.
