Critical thinking in teacher education
I am a doctoral researcher and teacher at the Faculty of Education, specialising in critical thinking and global education. With a background as a primary school principal, I am interested in understanding how thinking critically can be developed in practice in order to meet the global challenges of the 21st century. Drawing on Western & posthuman conceptions, my doctoral work examines the colonial assumptions inherent in critical thinking. Using action research, the aim is to collaborate with students to create a decolonised critical thinking course for initial teacher education.
