Criticism or critical thinking?
Do students need critical thinking skills? Aren’t they critical enough? This workshop will provide practical activities on how to improve critical thinking using not only known social media or podcasts but even an ordinary textbook or newspaper How to teach them to be curious, but not impulsive. How to ask and how to find answers, but not be naïve—that is our goal. Help our students to become independent and autonomous learners in today´s world.
