Higher-Order Cognition

ThinQ's learning resources are designed to help learners develop Higher-Order Cognitive capacities. These can be described, from slightly different angles and with different emphases, as:

  • transdisciplinary abilities of academic inquiry and critical thinking

  • academic Intelligence

  • thinking like an academic: like a mathematician, a theoretical scientist, an experimental scientist, a philosopher, a historian, an engineer, a lawyer, and so on,

and the understanding of the concepts that underlie these.
