New Critical Thinking Certification Makes Students Smarter and More Marketable
Atlanta, GA—April 16, 2015---Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute recently developed the IBAR Critical Thinking Method (IBAR) certification for students in response to corporate employers’ desire to see employees become more effective thinkers in the workplace. According to St. Olaf Institutional Research & Evaluation website, “Eighty-one percent of employers say students should place more emphasis on developing critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills; 63% say they should place more emphasis on developing quantitative reasoning skills.” IBAR is a hybrid critical thinking method influenced by the legal analysis used in American law schools and the qualitative and quantitative research methods used in master’s degree programs within universities, but geared for the layperson.
Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute founder and developer of IBAR Edward Brown says, “Although the Internet was supposed to make individuals smarter, it actually has done the opposite by producing a society of non-thinkers. If you can begin thinking about the world, critically and creatively, you can begin transforming it. We certify students so that they can use the certificate as proof that they can diagnose and solve problems for their college and employment applications. If two students have equal qualifications, the student who is a certified critical thinker will be selected by colleges as well secure desired employment. Typically, to be valuable as an employee, you should be either making or saving the company money. If you are not doing one or the other, you are expendable. IBAR allows you to do both.”
IBAR will be marketed to corporations and educational institutions for online education consisting of seven sessions (one-hour each) for critical thinking certification.
Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute is an applied research and Internet marketing company that creates digital products and services to solve problems in niche markets. Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute was founded in Atlanta in 2002.
