ANALYSIS OF CRITICAL THINKING TENDENCY OF CHINESE UNDERGRADUATES MAJOR IN SOFTWAREPages: 121-128
Authors: Wanyi Du
UNESCO has been defining critical thinking ability as the training goal of higher education since 1998. However, in China, the research of critical thinking ability is still at primary stage. Few courses were designed to cultivate students’ critical thinking ability and innovation ability. In this paper, the author investigates the critical thinking tendency of college students majoring in software in the school, and finds that the critical thinking ability of college students majoring in software in our university is not only lower than the average standard specified by international measurement, but also at a disadvantage compared with the existing survey results in other regions of China. Therefore, it is suggested that teachers must change the inherent thought and method in traditional teaching, and actively develop new teaching mode, infusing the cultivation of thinking ability into the subject education.
