Developing Critical Thinkers: Challenging Adults To Explore Alternative Ways Of Thinking And Acting
This book analyzes current approaches to adult learning and presents a comprehensive review of the research on how adults learn. The author, Stephen D. Brookfield, provides a variety of methods, techniques and approaches that adults can use to come to individual judgments, choices, and decisions instead of handing responsibility over to someone else. He also shows how adults can use critical thinking to resolve conflicts, make decisions, and build leadership in the workplace; how they can learn to give criticism without feeling personally threatened; how to compromise, negotiate, and communicate fully and clearly in all areas of life.
