Critical Thinking: What is True and What to Do Many researchers suggest that a key characteristic of critical thinking is the ability to recognize one’s own fallibility when evaluating and generating evidence — recognizing the danger of weighing evidence according to one’s own beliefs. The expanding literature on informal reasoning emphasizes the importance of detaching one’s own beliefs from the process of argument evaluation (Kuhn, 2007; Stanovich & Stanovich, 2010). The emphasis placed on unbiased reasoning processes has led researchers to highlight the importance of decontextualized reasoning. Kelley (1990) argues that “the ability to step back from our train of thought . . . . is a virtue because it is the only way to check the results of our thinking, the only way to avoid jumping to conclusions, the only way to stay in touch with the facts” (p. 6). Various tasks in the heuristics and biases branch of the reasoning literature involve some type of decontextualized reasoning (Kahneman, 2003; Stanovich, 2003). References

Self-University Week / AUTODIDACTIC PRESS - lifelong learning advocate Self-University Week September 1-7 Autodidactic Press has sponsored Self-University Week since 1989. It is our intention to continually expand this celebration until the value of lifelong learning is indelibly etched into the national consciousness. Chase's Annual Events lists the first seven days of September as Self-University Week. The purpose of Self-University Week is to remind adults (in or out of school) that each of us has a responsibility to help shape the future by pursuing lifelong education. Constant public debate about abortion, gay rights, gun control, and the death penalty remind us that truth is not nearly so easy to obtain as the "right answers" we sought in school. Answers to our most pressing problems are found in self-education and the willingness to use reason in reaching equitable solutions. We welcome your comments and suggestions for celebrating Self-University Week. 52 Ways to Celebrate Self-University Week September 1-7

How to Learn on Your Own: Creating an Independent Scholar Resource Plan One of the most challenging and gratifying parts of learning alone is the opportunity to search for and select your own learning material. Students in traditional classrooms usually don’t get to decide how they are going to master course content. Instructors decide for them in the form of textbook selection, quizzes, tests, group projects, etc. A resource plan is a document used to brainstorm the learning material you can use when you begin your studies. This article will show you how to create a resource plan to use in your independent studies. Step 1: Set a Goal The first step to creating a resource plan is to decide on a single goal. Ineffective Goal – Learn HTMLEffective Goal – Create several websites using HTML, referring only minimally to a coding book. Ineffective Goal – Learn about American literature.Effective Goal – Identify and read 100 classic American novels, memorize the major time periods in American literature, and be able to discuss major American authors.

Five Best Distraction-Free Writing Tools Seems like all five choices are basically the same app with different names. Kind of a disappointing hive five, not that that's Lifehacker's fault. It just means there isn't much variety in this category, I guess. My vote was for LyX, and I'll re-post what I wrote in the original vote: "Fullscreen mode is extremely minimal, and even the normal view keeps things out of the way. I like it because I don't have to make a compromise between features and focus: formatting is separated from content creation, so you can still make presentable documents without having to use a separate app or deal with niggling formatting problems as you write." My second choice would be vim. * Or nano, if you want, or some other console editor; I'm not trying to be a vi snob here.
