First day: Through workshops and exchange of experiences with colleagues, we determined which skills are important for teaching in the 21st century and how important it is for students to develop critical and creative thinking. We also learned new methods that we can use to develop such skills in students. The organizers of the course took us through the city and introduced ours to the most important sights of Helsinki. Second day: We discussed about creativity - what can stop us from being creative, what we can do about it, how we can help the students and how they can help us. We learned about CREDOX - Creative Paradox, Critical challange, Metacognition, 4F model of debriefing, VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity).
