The student is required to question and challenge implicit assumptions and logic/reasoning explicit in the journal article as well as any discernable shortcomings of the study reported in the article while acknowledging the paper's contribution. The students are also encouraged to engage in varied thinking about the paper's topic, i.e. wearing different "thinking hats", e.g. Support, Neutral and Refute.

Below is the link for the poster - just in case if you need it.
