Description:

Facilitated by Yunyi Chen, Centre for Teaching and Learning
Panelists: Johanna Amos and Lydia Skulstad, Student Academic Success Services (SASS); Student Panelist: TBA

Critical thinking is highly valued at Queen’s University. In many disciplines, it is considered the basics for academic writing. Coming from diverse cultural, educational, and linguistic backgrounds, international students often experience obstacles practicing critical thinking in written assignments, thus are regarded as unable to think critically. Contrary to this stereotype, this workshop explores why international students tend to project seemingly weaker critical thinking in English academic writing through a cultural perspective.
