On 24-27 September 2018, members of the Forum Working Group "Civic Education" organised an expert lab “Think Critically!” in Warsaw. This is how the project supported by a grant from the EU-Russia Civil Society Forum started.
Eleven experts from NGOs and initiative groups from Germany, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland and Russia participated in the workshop. The participants discussed their experiences in teaching critical thinking they accumulated in respective countries. Besides, during the workshop, the experts familiarised themselves with the experience of a number of Polish organisations in the field and started developing their own materials.
As a result of an intensive work, it became possible to develop in a short period of time programmes for teaching critical thinking and create materials for testing mass audience. This is almost a finished product prepared by an international team of experts of the Working Group. Furthermore, the materials will be refined to take into account the specifics of the audience perception in different countries. As the next step, their promotion in educational practices will begin.
