Course Description

Critical thinking is a vital competence in the 21st century. The accelerating changes and ubiquitous digital surroundings have transformed how we access information, communicate, and learn. While a huge amount of information is just one click away, now more than ever our classrooms need to provide students with enough opportunities to develop their thinking skills for comprehensive and autonomous deep learning.

However, thinking is, in general, an invisible process. We rarely get to “see” students’ thinking process, but mostly only the results of their thinking. Therefore, to cultivate the competence of critical thinking, an important question for teachers is how to make the invisible process visible. Making the process visible provides teachers with better opportunities to help students handle their ways of thinking and build good thinking habits.

In this course, you will learn how to make the thinking process visible to facilitate student cognitive engagement and understanding. Visible thinking is a research-based approach to deepen content learning and cultivate students’ thinking skills and dispositions. Thinking routines are simple but powerful tools that help to visualize the thinking processes through a variety of graphic organizers. It has been widely used in different countries, among different subjects and levels, proven to be effective in enhancing student engagement and learning.

During this course, you will gain an understanding of the benefits of visible thinking in promoting deep learning. You will learn some practical classroom thinking routines to promote active and higher-level thinking that is visible to both you and your students.

This course uses the learning by doing approach: you will have the opportunities to experience and practice using the thinking routines and learn from reflecting and discussing the firsthand experience. Last but not the least, you reflect and discuss the opportunities and potential struggles to create an environment that fosters and supports an active culture of thinking to learn in your classrooms.

By the end of this course, you will gain a thorough understanding of the strengths of the visible thinking approach. You will be able to use the thinking routines in your classroom to make thinking visible to you and your students. Finally, you will be capable to facilitate your students to become critical and independent thinkers and problem solvers, enabling them to be responsible citizens in the 21st century.
