Title:  Exploring the psychological and sociological factors affecting critical thinking with students of English for Academic Purposes 


This was a qualitative research project for a Doctorate in Education.  Its aim was to ascertain whether students of English for Academic Purposes (EAP) found that exploring certain psychological and sociological factors affecting human thinking helped them with their own critical thinking. I did this with EAP students at the University of Sheffield in a series of workshops.  I then interviewed the participants and analysed the resulting data using thematic analysis and code development.  

The project received ethical approval from the University of Sheffield; the Reference Number is 023437. See the READ ME document for further details.
