BENEFITS OF USING CRITICAL THINKING IN HIGH EDUCATION

A.K. Alwali

United Arab Emirates University (UNITED ARAB EMIRATES)
It's vitally important to your future that you develop the ability to be able to look at a situation or problem and think through all the angles. You do that by learning the art of critical thinking.
Nowadays, the way of education in primary or high school is failed to educate students. Instead of educated them it’s trained. You can see different view in high education. It uses the art of critical thing. Why?
Good critical thinking skills bring numerous benefits such as:
1. Improved attention and observation.
2. Knowledge of how to get your own point across more easily.
3. Skills of analysis that you can choose to apply in a variety of situations.
4. Higher test score on class and standardized tests.
5. Improved student understanding of their own thought process.
6. Improved student ability to transfer learned content skills to new applications.
7. Skilled decision making and problem solving.
8. Intelligent choices in human relationships.
9. Skilled civic and personal choices.
10. How to write different level questions in three areas; Knowledge, Comprehension and Application

If the critical thinking has all these skills, so what is critical thing?
I searched for a definition of critical thing and I found a definition that works for me:
Critical thinking means correct thinking about the world. That is focused on deciding what to believe or do. Also, Critical thinking refers to awareness of a set of interrelated critical questions, ability to ask and answer critical questions at appropriate times and the desire to actively use the critical questions.
Also, most of educators are interested in teaching critical thinking to their students. Many academic departments hope that its professors and instructors will become informed about the strategy of teaching critical thinking skills.
My paper will be focus on, How to be able to implement these skills in high education and what are the benefits of these skills?
