Call for participation in OECD Project : fostering and assessing creativity and critical thinking skills in higher education

07 February 2018

The OECD Centre for Educational Research and Innovation is launching a new project on “fostering and assessing students’ creative and critical thinking skills in higher education”. The project is dealing with institutional development in the area of teaching and learning and invites the active participation of higher education institutions interested in developing their capacity in teaching and learning.

As part of its Innovation Strategy for Education and Training the Centre for Educational Research and Innovation is exploring how to foster and assess students’ creative and critical thinking skills in higher education, including teacher education.

Through the implementation, documentation and evaluation of innovative pedagogical interventions, the project aims to build a community of practice around the improvement of teaching and learning in higher education.

The project will span several disciplines in undergraduate education on the one hand, and focus on teacher education at any level on the other. It is open to all types of institutions delivering higher education. Participants should express their interest as soon as possible and will be able to join the project until April 2018. The pedagogical interventions are expected to start in the 2018-19 academic year in the Northern hemisphere.

Further information on the project can be found in the call for participation below:

An information webinar about the project will be held on 13 February from 3.30 to 5.00 CET (Paris time). Please contact Parissa Nahani ( to get the connection details if you are interested in participating.
