Students Engage, Analyze, Problem Solve at ACO Critical Thinking Workshop
ACO students are poised to change the world, using critical thinking to explore the “whys” and “hows” behind the “whats”! At a widely attended Critical Thinking Skills Workshop at ARCH Centre on June 17th, ARCH U.S. Admissions Consultants Angel Ayala and Jana Sin offered in-depth critical thinking development to new ACO students.
Paddie Chan, ACO ’21, said the workshop helped adjust her thinking to “imagine the perspective of different stakeholders.”
Janet Lee, ACO ’21, said, “I really enjoyed the session on brain teasers and discussion of case studies. The workshop was set in a game-like format, which really motivated us all to think creatively while examining multiple perspectives before arriving at any conclusions.”
