Our approach - also referred to as the Paulian Approach to Critical Thinking - offers a developed language for critical thinking that can be incorporated into the core of teaching and learning at all levels.

Critical thinking academies and conferences will take place in March (San Diego, CA), April (Seattle, WA), July-August (SSU, CA), and in the fall (northern CA). Registration will open soon! See more details on our Calendar of Events; 

We offer accredited online courses in critical thinking for instructors, as well as a course for non-educators. Participants will learn to think more critically, and how become more proficient at historical, scientific, mathematical, and other disciplinary modes of thinking. They will develop skills, abilities, and values critical to success.

Critical thinking is a desire to seek, patience to doubt, fondness to meditate, slowness to assert, readiness to consider, carefulness to dispose and set in order; and hatred for every kind of imposture.

~ Francis Bacon (1605)
