Critical thinking, peer-writing, and the importance of feedback.
Dr Roger McDermott firstname.lastname@example.org
Academic Strategic Lead
Critical thinking is one of the key competencies listed by OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) , a central European Community organization, and is also mentioned as a learning outcome for higher education by international organizations, such as ABET, ACM, and IEEE, as well as in numerous national and university legislations regarding higher education degrees. The ability to communicate, not least in writing, is another important competence our students are supposed to gain during their education. There is thus high agreement regarding the importance of these competencies, but it is not clear how to achieve this.
