Ontario teachers continue to articulate the need for ongoing support in the area of critical thinking. Since 2009, nearly two thousand Ontario teachers have participated in OTF Critical Thinking conferences, workshops and online support sessions, in partnership with The Critical Thinking Consortium (TC2). Through these self-directed PD opportunities, classroom teachers have gained valuable skills, resources, and support for improving their classroom practice through the integration of an effective critical thinking framework.
OTF continues to support teachers in developing their critical thinking skills and strategies through live OTF Connects online webinars. Registration is now open for the 2013 OTF Connects calendar of events. To view archived sessions go to OTF Connects and click on Resources.
