DEPARTMENT Doctoral School

Critical and creative thinking are often manifested in the different interpretations of information presented to doctoral researchers throughout the progression of their doctoral studies.

By the end of this workshop, doctoral researchers should be able to:

- adopt a more critical outlook;
- apply creative thinking tools to organise their thoughts;
