Education...is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think (Einstein, 1921)

Questioning is the literacy which enables learners to analyse, evaluate, interpret and think critically about information. Questioning, sometimes referred to as critical literacy, sits closely with the literacy of understanding.

Thinking critically about your sources - analysing, evaluating and synthesising information - is an essential part of your studies at University-level. Your work will benefit from using the best evidence and information available, and showing you have researched your question and have reliable evidence to back your arguments.
