Funded by the European Commission for 3 years (from 2016 to 2019) under the Erasmus+ Programme, the ‘Critical Thinking Across the European Higher Education Curricula – CRITHINKEDU’ project arises with the background and experience of European Higher Education Institutionsbusiness corporations and Non-Governmental Organisations and their ongoing concern to improve the quality of learning in universities and across different sectors, which converge in a common need on how to better support the development of Critical Thinking (CT) according to labour market needs and social challenges. CRITHINKEDU will create an opportunity to foster dialogue among relevant actors in a joint industry-university forum, with continuous effort to align learning outcomes with real world challenges. It will also allow the implementation of a model of CT teaching and learning activities transnationally in the various partners’ courses, and the consortium will work as a network to promote CT education around Europe.
