Applying Critical Thinking
This week, share your thoughts about critical thinking and its relevance to your professional life and to working with a diverse set of people with different skills, perceptions, backgrounds, and experiences.
Review the interactive media piece Emotional Intelligence & Team Building linked here and in Yellowdig and your team selections, then consider the following ideas for your discussion post:
1 The team is collaborating and working well together. Unfortunately, the â€œthirdâ€ person you selected becomes ill and takes a leave of absence. The team needs a replacement! After reviewing the interactive media piece again, who would you recommend as the replacement? How might critical thinking assist you with this decision and in integrating the new member into the group? What role might bias play?
2 Review the team member descriptions from the interactive media piece. Is there someone from the group who most resembles a person with whom you have had difficulty working or a person with whom you had a productive working relationship? Describe this experience and how emotional intelligence and critical thinking affected your interactions. What did you learn from this experience?
3 Think about an experience you have encountered related to implicit bias. Describe the experience. Then, review the media interactive piece, and select two team members that you can envision having this same experience. What might each of them say or do during the conflict? Consider their emotional intelligence attributes and the role of critical thinking. How might they be helped to resolve the situation?
4 What did you find to be of most interest about this weekâ€™s content or the interactive media piece related to critical thinking and its relevance to your professional development or academic journey?
