Useful strategies for engaging in academic debate
This workshop will focus on some useful strategies for engaging in academic arguments and discussions.
You will not only learn to differentiate between internal and external criticism, but you will learn to reduce faulty arguments to absurdity, question the relevance of seemingly good arguments, and assess the consistency of an argumentative position (your own or other’s). You will learn strategies, therefore, that will allow you to polish your own critical reasoning and evaluate the reasoning of academic papers.
Our workshops run all year round at our Helpdesk in the Silberrad Student Centre, and cover all aspects of academic skills, maths and statistics. You can also book a 1:1 appointment with an advisor to talk over anything in your studies that you need help with.
