Development as reflective thinkers as a lifelong process
The authors describe our development as reflective thinkers as a lifelong process (see Exhibit 2.1). Consider which stage of critical thinking corresponds to your own development, and then respond to the following:
Describe a previous experience in an academic or professional context where you applied critical thinking. In what ways might the same thinking skills be applied in this course and throughout your doctoral program?
Describe one strength and one area for growth in your critical thinking habits.
Describe 2–3 strategies you might use when applying critical thinking habits in this course and throughout your professional life.
