This innovative pegagocial method introduces multiple critical thinking tools and involves the following steps: • the narration of a trigger story with an assignment related theme • a plot that evolves around two (or more) established publications with antithetical perspectives (use of the Source tool) • the perspectives are termed as the protagonist and antagonist (use of the Critique tool) • in class co-creation of narrative (use of the Critique tool) • co-creation of resolution (use of the Argument tool) The main outcome of this activity was to building student engagement with critical thinking with main beneficiaries the PG and UG students and the teaching staff. The students-workshops’ participants have showed high engagement, in depth understanding and extensive adoption of critical thinking in their assessments (A2, A3, K5). The review of a sample of PG and UG students’ assignments (n=45) showed evidence of the impact that this approach had on their learning. The students who participated at the workshops employed critical thinking tools in their assignments.
