      Description

      You have to understand what you’re writing about before you can put an idea or proposal into words that are easy for your reader to understand. Turning that concept around, unclear writing is a sure sign that you don’t understand what you’re writing about. And no one wants their writing to come across as confused.

      What’s the best way to present a logical argument or policy recommendation? How do we know we’re investigating the right question and our recommendations are based on sound logic? How can we minimise the risk of an argument being flawed?

      Our Critical Thinking Lab will provide you with the tools you need to have confidence in your thinking processes. And we show you how to present your conclusion and reasoning convincingly.
