CRITICAL THINKING COURSES

The partners developed materials for the target groups of the project. During the project, a questionnaire was developed to analyse the critical thinking needs of adult learners (6 language versions, see the attachments) and an open-access course on the Canvas e-learning platform was designed to teach and develop critical thinking skills. The course materials were created by analysing the questionnaires collected from more than 1,288 European respondents (in the application form planned 1,000). The course modules are based on the CRAAP model of critical thinking proposed by Sarah Blakeslee (2004) of California State University. The model consists of five elements: currency, relevance, authority, accuracy and purpose.

Users will gain skills in the areas of:

• Identifying problems;

• Research;

• Analyzing data;

• Determining data relevance;

• Identifying biases, prejudices, fake news;

• Drawing conclusions.

 

The course consists of 5 modules that address critical thinking issues:

• Currency - timeliness of information.

• Relevance - the importance of the information for your needs.

• Authority - the source of the information.

• Accuracy - the reliability, truthfulness and correctness of the content.

• Purpose - the reason the information exists.

 

Each module includes short theoretical content that presents the basics of critical thinking issues in an accessible way, interactive exercises in the form of assignments or tests and quizzes, videos and reflections. Each module concludes with a case study to test the newly acquired skills in practice.
