Abstract:

This research supported by Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SRP of the Centra Ueropena University in Budapest) is focused on students’ development of critical thinking (CT) in the course of studying three social disciplines - Theories of Social Work, Social Policy and Sociology of Family. These courses have been taught to two different classes, correspondingly first two courses – to combined second and third year undergraduate students, and the second one-to the students of fourth year of study. The paper studies the dynamics of learning abilities while implementing special teaching strategies like facilitating discussions, creating teacher-student interactions and establishing student oriented lecturing. The idea of the research project is to study not only the dynamics of CT in general but to look at the changes of their constitutive parts, or traits, as well. Special attention is given to developing of connectivity – within courses, with other courses and with everyday life including personal experiences-as well as contextualization and conceptualization. The data has been collected at the St. Petersburg University of Humanities and Social Sciences during 2008-2009 academic years at the Department of Social Work. Assessment of the developing of the CT traits development in the course of study is made mostly on the basis of essays while portfolio of discussions, short reaction papers, surveys and other written assignments have contributed to better understanding of where students are in the subjects taught.
