¿Te has planteado alguna vez mediante qué mecanismos algunas personas consiguen convencer a otras personas? Este curso da respuesta a la pregunta y está dirigido a cualquier individuo interesado por los mecanismos de la argumentación en el siglo XXI. Aprenderemos la base de la comunicación persuasiva y el pensamiento crítico aplicados a toda clase de formatos: desde las palabras o los argumentos, pasando por las imágenes y los audiovisuales o, finalmente, por los números, las estadísticas y los gráficos.
