There is a common understanding in Higher Education, and particularly in STEAM teaching, about the need of developing the so called “21st Century skills” also referred to as the 4C’s, including Critical Thinking, Creative Thinking, Communication and Collaboration. While the last two skills are probably more familiar for faculties, developing Creative and Critical Thinking skills in our students is much more difficult and hardly achievable without a proper training and guidance. The proposed Workshop will give participants an insight about what does it mean Critical Thinking, which are its components and some technics for teaching and assessing this skill in STEAM courses.
