4Cs

A 1 Week ERASMUS+ Teacher Training Course available in Florence and Dublin. 

Long heralded as key competences for 21st century learners, the ”Four Cs” (creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration) are often embraced in theory yet stump educators in practice. Creativity and Critical Thinking represent inseparable attitudes and abilities for innovation which, contrary to popular belief, CAN be learned, taught and implemented in any classroom. Communication and Collaboration are fundamental life skills that students can draw from in their everyday experiences at school and shape their ability to live, connect with others and work well in their future. The “Four Cs” strengthen our learners’ ability to find their place – professionally, personally, socially - in today’s fast changing world, while fostering other life-enhancing Cs: curiosity, confidence, caring and cooperation.

This course aims to provide teachers with the knowledge, the know-how and the confidence to incorporate these stimulating skills into their curriculum and school environment. In a true learn-by-doing environment, course participants will gain greater knowledge about what these competences entail and not only how to teach them, but first and foremost how to tap into their own ability to create, to think critically, to communicate effectively and to collaborate well with others.

Course Learning Outcomes are:

  • To gain a clear understanding of the creative process and experience it first-hand
  • To think critically and get the most out of today's information overload
  • To experience more effective communication abilities and techniques
  • To broaden collaborative opportunities in the classroom and encourage it in all aspects of the school community
  • To live a true international team building experience
