Developing Critical Thinking (CT) is a predominant theme in 21st Century Skills. It is an active, purposeful and organised cognitive process. Research has proved that it can be explicitly taught if given importance from a young age. This nine-hour workshop will help educators to analyse the core components of Critical Thinking and enhance their skills in developing a thinking culture in their schools and classrooms. It will also enable them to incorporate critical thinking in classrooms.
