Developing critical thinking Hui Qing

Was critical thinking a new skill for you to apply at RMIT?

When I recall my learning experience, I think there are two points that should be adjusted for international students who come from an Eastern educational background.

The first one is reading with critical eyes. Eastern culture emphasises to obey 'big man's sayings', so some of us are very willing to receive an expert's opinion than think they are ready too .. but not give our own ideas, and I always forget to collect evidence as I am reading.
