Shownotes

Welcome to our fourth season!

As our semester at NMBU starts in September, we wanted to welcome listeners back, welcome new listeners, and begin the podcast season with a great topic for new students - Critical Thinking.

Critical thinking is a core of western university education, but we don't think that critical thinking is always well defined in a classroom setting. Additionally, critical thinking is more than a one-time action, but a process of ways to developing original thoughts on subject matter. When it comes to research and writing, critical thinking represents the foundation for the work we will do as students and researchers. In this episode, we dive into what we think critical thinking is and how we think you can develop your critical thinking skills.

We're really excited for this new season and look forward to upcoming episodes.
