Critical Thinking is one of those “buzz-words” which we hear over and over again, not just in the ELT circles, but also in the wider field of education. When we use or hear the phrase ‘critical thinking’, do we all mean and understand the same thing? Is it just a term which we feel we need to mention in order to add weight to our discussions? Or is it an active and meaningful concept which forms and influences our approach to developing the curriculum? And if so, do all teachers know what we mean? What about the learners?
This FOCI event will attempt to identify and clarify the meaning of critical thinking and to think of practical ways in which Curriculum Teams can work within their institutions towards a common approach to promoting the skill of critical thinking.
