Critical Thinking Tutorial: Learning Outcomes

This tutorial will empower you with valuable critical thinking skills that are essential for your university education.

Why Learn to Interpret Information?

As the Critical thinking and reading video suggests, you want to have a good understanding of the topic you're writing about so you can present it in a way that makes sense to the reader.

This module will help you in two important ways:

  1. Interpret information methodically, using a strategy like the SEE-I method, to make sense of abstract terms and concepts, so you can write about (or explain) them in ways that others can understand.
  2. Interpret information critically, so you can extend your understanding of the text and make judgments about how a text is argued.

  • Define comprehension and interpretation in relation to information
