Edspresso Episode 5: Teaching critical thinking through philosophy, with Sandra Lynch

Sandra Lynch explains why philosophical thinking is important for an artificial intelligence (AI) world, and how schools might approach it.

Why might an AI future require students to have stronger ethical reasoning and critical thinking skills? How can learning philosophy support the development of thinking skills? Is deep content knowledge needed to support this?

To find out, we talk to Sandra Lynch, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame Australia.

Sandra works to deepen students’ active engagement with ethics and critical thinking skills through the Philosophy in Schools Association of NSW.
