Abstract Michael Christie teaches critical awareness values in his course for adult and vocational educators in the Northern Territory University unit 'Reflective teaching practice'. Course members are from diverse educational backgrounds and varied geographical locations. All are currently on the job. He aims at both skill development and encouraging course members in critical reviewing of their own practices. Christie emphasises to his students that they do not teach in a value free environment. In this chapter, Christie lists some of the thinkers in this area of fostering critical thinking skills which include developing self awareness and recognition of one's own and others' assumptions. A survey instrument entitled 'Differing world views', which Christie uses within the course, is included in the chapter. He gives detail on how the questionnaire can be used and some of the useful discussion and learning on assumptions and holding of values which he found resulting from its use.
