Towards a Critical Citizenship Skills Toolbox (CRIST): stocktaking, operationalising, disseminating conceptual and practical competencies
Dr. Ward Vloeberghs is senior lecturer Political Science at Erasmus University College.
The EUR Strategy 2024 aims to involve students as co-creators and critical citizens but does not indicate how students gain critical thinking skills or what these are. We aim to clarify what critical citizenship (CC) means, not only philosophically but especially in pedagogical terms: how to teach CC skills? Rather than designing new tools in a one-size-fits-all manner, we deploy a three-step approach to (1) take stock of how CC is currently taught across curricula and see (2) how these practices can be usefully operationalised for teachers so that (3) we can align, improve and circulate CC skill-building tools within our university and beyond. We aim to deliver an interdisciplinary transferable toolkit on critical citizenship skills in the form of a publicly accessible, interactive repository.
