In our new elements course students have been analysing the different peacekeeping missions involving the United Nations. In groups they mapped the missions and shared their learning with the class. After this students worked on their own arguments for our topic of the week: “The United Nations has failed its fundamental mission to bring peace and stability to the world”
The Deep Learning skill focus was Critical Thinking: Evaluating information and arguments: Learners are skilled at determining both logically and intuitively, whether information is trustworthy, relevant and useful. They are skilled evaluators or logical arguments and can identify and articulate strengths and weaknesses with clarity and insight. They can defend their position with relevant references to information or data.
