Mastering the Art of Critical Thinking and Identifying Fallacies Workshop

Improve your critical thinking skills in this free interactive online workshop on FLICC - the methods of disinformation.

Mastering the Art of Critical Thinking and Identifying Fallacies Workshop

In this workshop, we’ll explore the five main fallacies and dive into greater detail on the rest of the taxonomy.

You’ll learn about how FLICC is used to identify flawed reasoning and arguments and gain valuable critical thinking skills that can be applied to any field.

But it won’t be all theory – we’ll also have fun and engaging “match-making” tasks that you can tackle with the whole group or smaller breakout groups. You’ll have the opportunity to put your newfound knowledge to the test and apply it to real-life scenarios.

And to make things even more interactive, we’ll use Mentimeter to send quiz questions to participants during the workshop. It’s a fun and easy way to stay engaged and test your knowledge.

Whether you’re a student, professional, or simply interested in developing your critical thinking skills, this workshop is for you. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to learn from experts in the field and connect with like-minded individuals.

Join us for the FLICC workshop and take the first step towards becoming a master of critical thinking.
