A university education is not just about discussing the ‘what’. It’s also about discussing the ‘why’. So while description may be important, analysis is even more so.
The Oxford Dictionary define ‘thinking’ as “the process of considering or reasoning about something” (http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/), and it defines ‘critical’ as “involving the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue in order to form a judgement” (http://www.oxforddictionaries.com/)
So developing critical thinking skills is about asking the ‘why’ questions.
