  • DESCRIPTION

    Written by experienced authors and examiners, this third edition encourages students to explore ’What is knowledge? Why, and how do we learn?’. This print and digital course guide helps shape students into internationally minded citizens as they critically assess the world around them. Students will explore real-world examples and independently reflect on their knowledge, growing as knowers. A dedicated chapter focuses on building skills for assessment, so students will be fully prepared to excel in the essay and exhibition.
