Welcome to SIPC 2015!

Welcome to SIPC 2015, the II International Seminar on Critical Thinking, which will be held on the 8th and 9th of May 2015 at the University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, Vila Real, Portugal. The I International Seminar on Critical Thinking reinforced the importance of critical thinking in the educational context, based on the increasing value of soft skills in personal education, professional achievement and informed citizenship. The members of the webPACT group, in partnership with the LabDCT/CIDTFF of the University of Trás-os-Montes e Alto Douro, present the II International Seminar focused on the relevance of critical thinking in teaching and learning for all the educational levels (from primary to higher education) and in different disciplinary areas. It will be a great opportunity to deepen the diagnosis on the approaches and experiences developed in different educational institutions and to outline future joint work efforts and research projects in this area. SIPC 2015 endorses the following aims:

  • Contribute to deepening the research on Critical Thining in Portugal and in other countries;
  • Share interventional strategies for the teaching and development of Critical Thinking;
  • Establish an agenda for educational research in Critical Thinking;
