Jorum: a vast reservoir of helpful study resources

At this time many students at Lincoln, and without doubt elsewhere, are strenuously revising for exams and submitting voluminous  dissertations. It might be useful to peruse what the HE sector at large offers in terms of advice and support during this hectic period. Jorum qualifies as the UK’s largest repository for discovering and sharing Open Educational Resources for HE, FE and Skills. After browsing the substantial archive (a search for exam skills elicits 47 results, whilst a search for critical thinking receives 225 results), I chose Robert Falmer’s (from the University of Northampton) Critical Thinking: Exploring Flaws and Weaknesses in Arguments Xertes video from last year available through the Creative Commons licence.  Mostly suitable for first year undergraduate students, Robert explains the flaws and weaknesses in arguments within a critical thinking context by presenting three sets of three flawed arguments, with questions and feedback for each argument.
