Welcome to the web course on Academic Knowledge and Inquiry!
If you take your journey through this course seriously and work through all the exercises and the expositions, you will develop a broad cross-disciplinary understanding of the nature of academic knowledge and inquiry. Within this framework, you will develop the ability to:
- justify a position/claim you subscribe to;
- critically evaluate a position that you come across, along with any justification that accompanies it;
- pursue a methodology appropriate for a given question; and
- participate meaningfully in an academic or public debate on a controversial issue.
The material on this website would be useful for students, teachers and anyone who values an educated mind.
