The Dissertation Toolkit is an interactive resource to help anyone working on large assignments such as:
You can dip into the toolkit for Ideas and Resources about many aspects of academic study, including Referencing, Critical Writing, Proofreading and more. There are videos, quizzes, checklists and much more.
The Critical Thinking Toolkit has been designed to introduce you to all aspects of critical thinking, from recognising how cognitive biases influence how we interact with information, evaluating the reliability of information and critical reading and writing.
It is designed to be worked through from the start but you can dip into different sections if you prefer. It is interactive with tasks throughout to help you fully learn the theories and techniques.
