How to Reason Well in Ambiguous Contexts (.5 CEU)

Critical Thinking
Scientific Reasoning
Explanation
Hypothesis Testing
Creative Thinking
Inductive Reasoning
Slippery Slope
False Dilemma
Slanted Language
Personal Attacks
Denial and Delay
Misuse of Authority
Empirical Reasoning

Content: Engage the power of probabilistic reasoning. Strengthen your critical thinking skills of Inference and Evaluation. This course focuses on using these skill when reasoning in dynamic contexts of risk and uncertainty. Better achieve the twin purposes of strong critical thinking: First, deciding what to believe (finding the best possible explanation of events when certainty is not possible). And, second, deciding what to do (making the best decisions when conditions are evolving and where information is incomplete).

Inoculate yourself against today’s top 20 most beguilingly deceptive fallacies. Learn to recognize, anticipate, and protect yourself from mistakes, lies, scams, cons, manipulations, and misinformation based on fallacious reasoning. Discover the strengths and limitations of “Bottom-Up” experiential reasoning. That process is the best yet invented for understanding natural phenomena, including ourselves. Although it may not yield certainty, it does enable us to adapt to the ever-changing world around us.

Elements: This course includes 3 learning elements:

  • Skill Builder: “Reasoning in Ambiguous Contexts — Level 1 — Best Explanation”
  • Skill Builder: “Reasoning in Ambiguous Contexts – Level 2 – Beguiling Fallacies”
  • Deep Dive: “Bottom-Up Experiential Reasoning”

You will be able to navigate back and forth within each course element. This enables you to return to a prior question and change your answer. The estimated engagement for this course is five hours of learning distributed over the three elements.

Results Reports: When you complete an element of the course, you will see on screen your scores, detailed personal feedback, and a summary of key ideas.  You will be able to download a PDF copy of your results report. That PDF will include the number of minutes that you engaged with that course element and your percent correct on the “Personal Feedback – Overall” score. Use your PDF results reports to document that you have passed this course.

  • More confidently trust in reasoning
  • Protect yourself against deceptive argumentation
  • Identify the top twenty most common fallacies
  • Recognize slanted language and rhetorical tricks
  • Spot misleading false assumptions
  • Use win-win interest-based negotiation
  • Make reasonable correlation-based predictions
  • Identify enforcement interrogation techniques
  • Make decisions in time-limited, high-stakes contexts
  • Grasp the power of empirical reasoning to test hypotheses
  • Describe how empirical reasoning is self-correcting
  • Identify questions empirical reasoning best addresses
  • Follow the steps in a systematic Bottom-Up investigation

Certification of .5 CEU is awarded by Saint Mary’s College of California for successfully completing this CEU Pack. This Course Pack has been assigned Saint Mary’s College CEU course number 838.0222 and course Title “How to Reason Well in Ambiguous Contexts.”

This course has 3 learning elements. Successful completion of this course requires: (1) Correctly answering at least 80% of the questions on “Personal Feedback – Overall” in each learning element. And (2) engaging the learning elements for a combined total of 5 or more hours.

You can document fulfilling both requirements using your Results Reports. One Results Report appears onscreen at the end of each learning element you complete. Download those Results Reports. Each shows the percent of questions answered correctly on “Personal Feedback – Overall” for that element. And each shows the number of minutes (“Session Duration”) engaged with the content of that learning element.
