Examining the influence of culture on critical thinking

Research output: Other Conference ContributionsConference Paper (other)

Abstract

The ability to think critically is a crucial attribute expected of university graduates. However, the endorsement of critical thinking in higher education has been challenged by the growing cultural diversity in university classrooms. There have been concerns about students of different cultural backgrounds showing systematic difference in critical thinking. This presentation seeks to highlight a few areas that culture may have an effect on the teaching and learning of critical thinking in higher education. Related empirical findings will also be reported to illustrate these ideas.
