Fostering and assessing students' creative and critical thinking skills in higher education
As part of its Innovation Strategy for Education and Training the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation is exploring how to foster and assess students’ creative and critical thinking skills in higher education, including teacher education.
Through the implementation, documentation and evaluation of innovative pedagogical interventions, the project aims to build a community of practice around the improvement of teaching and learning in higher education.
The project will span several disciplines in undergraduate education on the one hand, and focus on teacher education at any level on the other. It is open to all types of institutions delivering higher education. Participants should express their interest as soon as possible and will be able to join the project until April 2018. The pedagogical interventions are expected to start in the 2018-19 academic year in the Northern hemisphere.
