Using A Podcast: Critical Thinking Skills at the University Level

The following podcast defines critical thinking skills and how a student should apply them to university studies: https://library.leeds.ac.uk/podcasts/episode/1/critical_thinking_and_writing  An audio transcript is provided. The first step of writing is brainstorming. This podcast addresses the issues of mind mapping, data chunking, and notetaking. The information in the podcast reinforces ideas presented in class, so I would assign listening to it for homework and have students take notes on the podcast. In class, I would allow students to use their notes to write a paragraph about the key points learned from the podcast. I found it difficult to find a podcast that I would use as a class assignment.
