Teaching Critical Thinking: Sharing 10 years of experience

A question skeptics always seem to ask is how best to get people around them to think more critically. It's one thing to preach to the converted, but how does one get the conversation going with those who have never heard of "skepticism" or critical thinking?

Dr Russell McPhee shares 10 years of experience in just that; and while Russell has the luxury of being able to introduce students to the concept of critical thinking in a 13 week compulsory course, his insights are not only entertaining but relevant to the "every day" skeptic.
