Through this course, students will learn how to be critical readers. This is important in the university context because evaluating source texts for academic writing is common in various disciplines. The ability to read critically will enable students to (i) determine whether a given source text is an academic text, (ii) assess the reliability of evidence used in a given source text, and (iii) identify possible author bias in a given source text. Indeed, students, regardless of discipline, will need to assess the reliability and suitability of the source texts they approach during the research process of their academic writing. This course, as such, aims to equip students with the necessary critical reading skills for the purpose of sound academic research.


  • Limited to 40 participants per session
