Critical Thinking: Why is it so difficult to teach… and what can we do about it?

Starting with a discussion of key issues and beliefs in the critical thinking education debate and highlighting the relevance of critical thinking to life after school, Stephen will share real life examples of how teachers in primary and secondary schools have tried to encourage students to think more critically in their classrooms.



After a short career in advertising, Stephen qualified as a secondary school teacher in 2000 and taught Geography and Business Studies in three secondary schools in Essex between 2000-2010. During that time he also completed his Educational Leadership MA. He then spent a few years as a consultant before taking up a Headteacher post in a football academy in Sierra Leone. He is currently Senior Tutor and Director of SCITTS & International Programmes at The University of Buckingham.
