Critical thinking is the most overused term in higher education.
There are several types of thinking, of which critical thinking is but one. It might not be the most important one (anyone here want to speak up for creativity, imagination, reflection or practicality?). But academics (who should know better) have latched on to it as the be all solution to everything in higher education teaching and learning.
Someone passed along a link to this infographic on critical thinking. It’s ok.
