Remember a while back that I mentioned Michael McRae of CSIRO (who has appeared on the Token Skeptic podcast a few times and is the author of Tribal Science: Brains Beliefs and Bad Ideas – a must-get if you want a updated, Australian equivalent of Sagan’s A Demon-Haunted World) was the author of this YouTube series?
Now there’s a guide that has also been released by TechNYou:
RECOGNISING DODGY ARGUMENTS: HOW VALUES, BIASES AND DODGY ARGUMENTS MISLEAD USAnother in our series of postcard booklets based on the content in TechNyou’s critical thinking module that is part of our Science Education Resource.
There is also an extended version targeted at secondary teachers. This will give you a good overview of the critical thinking module and its content.
Pass the word on – and check out the video series if you haven’t seen them before!
