These Powerpoint slides contain a brief but useful exercise in engaging students in critical thinking – and then unpacking the process and finding the parallels with academic work (and professional practice for nursingn students). I have also included some of the surrounding slides that I use for unpacking the process. The notes include details from a script that I wrote for this session when I needed to deliver it as a large webinar session during the second Covid lockdown; however, a more flexible approach is needed in a face to face session. This activity also works well in 1:1 tutorials and smaller workshops/Zoom meeting sessions.
Please note that some of the content is specific to Nursing programmes and attempts to find links/join the dots between academic and professional skills. You will need to remove placement-specific PAD content if this doesn’t apply to your programmes.
