Most of what we know, we learn from other people. As children, much of this information is accepted without question, but as learning progresses to a higher level, as it does when studying towards a university degree, students are expected to critically appraise what they are learning, judging the evidence and questioning what is presented. Being able to locate, organize and compare different sources of information is a core skill required of students and graduates.
