Led by our partners from Roma-TRE University (Italy), our transnational training course on “Guidelines for quality-assurance criteria in critical thinking education” was held in Rome, between the 29th of January 2018 and the 2nd of February 2018.
It was a really enriching experience!
Around 60 participants, higher education teachers and/or trainers, from 9 different European countries: Belgium, Czech Republic, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Lithuania, Portugal, Romania, and Spain, attended the course. Within the scope of the third intellectual output, this course aimed at promoting effective instructional practices on critical thinking education in higher education. The participants had the opportunity to developed specific skills and competences on Instructional Design, Curriculum planning, Teaching methods, and Learning assessment. They re-designed one of their own courses within their domain-specific knowledge, by integrating strategies and practices to foster and evaluate Critical Thinking skills and dispositions. During the next academic semesters, the participants will apply the acquired knowledge within different deployment scenarios. The Rome training course will be also replicated to engage more teachers with CT practices in their courses. From all this work the CRITHINKEDU’ fourth intellectual output will consist in the final proposal of the “European guidelines/recommendations for quality-assurance criteria in critical thinking education”.
Soon, the whole Rome training course will be published in our website.
Congratulations to all the responsible partners, coaches and participants from the 9 countries involved in the course for the great moments of learning and exchange in Rome.
