Decision Skills Enhance Critical Thinking Development

Learn how 21st century skills like Critical Thinking can be taught through teaching Decision Skills.

Introducing tools for discussion and analysis during decision-making improves student outcomes you're already working to address.

Critical thought is integrated into the Decision Chain and optimized in the decision cycle. The Decision Focus video series presents the concepts in a meaningful and relatable way to students. Decisions require action to make critical thinking real.

The discipline of Decision Analysis is rooted in engineering and critical thought, for instance Stanford University offers a PhD in Decision Analysis from the Department of Science and Engineering.

Decision-making also requires the consideration of human behavior. To make a quality decision, critical thinking (head) must be balanced with the recognition of human behaviors (heart), like biases, assumptions, values, etc.
