These fundamentals can be summarised as an understanding of key concepts; an ability to go beyond the orthodox and the expected so that unfamiliar problems can be tackled with spirit; a facility with typical methods of approaching a problem in the discipline; and—closely associated with the previous point—an awareness of what learning and understanding in the discipline consists of. In other words, lecturers describe content-related versions, with a substantive and a procedural or syntactic element, of the general principles of ‘critical thinking’ and understanding.
These students seemed to have a narrow and absolutistic conception of science. The findings are similar to those of other studies (such as Brumby 1982) and probably have general application. Professional courses are not exempt from criticism either. In medicine, for example, Balla (Balla 1990a, 1990b) explains how the available evidence shows that learning in traditional curricula is often unsatisfactory. In most medical schools, the biomedical sciences are introduced before clinical experiences; it is assumed that students will apply the theory to practice.
The Hale Report (1964) asserted that ‘an implicit aim of higher education is to encourage students to think for themselves’; while Ashby (1973:147–9) described how students should develop ‘from the uncritical acceptance of orthodoxy to creative dissent…there must be opportunities for the intellect to be stretched to its capacity, the critical faculty sharpened to the point at which it can change ideas’. Although higher education has expanded to include those excluded from the sort of education to which these quotations refer, we would still aspire to the same aims for our students.
