Credo Adds Critical Thinking Resources to InfoLit Modules
Credo debuted the CT (Critical Thinking) Expansion Pack, which expands the instructional reach of its InfoLit Modules. With this additional content of 36 high-quality videos and quizzes, academic librarians can further contribute to student success—retention, GPA levels, employability, etc. The pack covers four foundational skills for students: critical thinking, communication/visual literacy, logic and reasoning, and culture and citizenship.
“The role of academic libraries is changing,” says Ian Singer, Credo’s general manager, “and librarians are embracing the opportunity to share their deep knowledge about critical thinking with students who desperately need it for their research. The best part comes with knowing that these skills stay with students long after they hand in their final research paper. The ability to think critically will open up possibilities in their careers and personal lives.”
