Many studies mentioned the importance of fostering higher education students’
critical thinking skills in order to prepare them for their future career. However,
many scholars contend that in online courses, critical thinking is difficult to accom-
plish. Understanding this gap, this paper aims to report the use of Socratic Ques-
tions strategy on synchronous discussion as the bridge to promote students’ critical
thinking in online learning environment. Twenty two Diploma 3 students who en-
rolled in Intermediate Reading course participated in this study. Due to the spread
of Covid-19 pandemic, this class was switched into online learning. To gather the
data, the content of participants’ individual post will be analysed to know the depth
of students’ critical thinking based on Yang et al.’s (2005) model. In addition, both
quantitative and qualitative analysis of students’ post will be applied to measure
ÿþthe effects of Socratic questioning on students’ critical thinking in synchronous
discussion in online learning. The result revealed that Socratic questions strategy
were successfully improve students’ depth of critical thinking.
