Share Can Critical and Creative Thinking Be Taught or Learned?

Event Details

As the future of work unfolds, what makes us human is what will make us employable. In this light, we look to research and learning sciences where personal and social capabilities are discussed and seek directions on how skills sought after in the future may be developed. 

 

Can critical thinking and creativity be taught or learned?

 

Most will agree that human beings are creatures of habit. Based on this premise, one would think that critical thinking and creativity are skills and thus can be taught or learned. However, there is a problem with this notion if we think about creativity as a talent, presumed to be an aptitude, or the ability to be good at something without being taught or in the case of critical thinking, it is an innate quality that implies one may not be trained or nurtured to think more critically. In this interactive session, we explore Pearson’s research on the Future of Skills and the Skills for Today whitepapers, specifically on Critical Thinking Skills and Creative Thinking, and discuss how employers can support skill development.
