4Cs have been around in education for some time now and these are some of the most  important skills students need to learn. They are also some of the most challenging skills to teach. Through this training, we would like to enhance teachers' understanding of 4Cs in education and offer them highly effective methods for teaching critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration skills.  


In our 5-day teacher training course, we will introduce and analyse the concepts of 4Cs and what is there beyond 4Cs in education. Participants will be given various practical examples and instructions on how to apply these principles in their teaching. This training also offers teachers how purposefully integrate technology into instruction to facilitate the practice and mastery of each of the 4Cs along with other learning objectives. Project-based learning as a concrete example of application of 4Cs will also be introduced. This 5-day training is packed with practical and engaging strategies that will transform the way teachers experience teaching.

By completing this course, participants will;  


- Explore the pedagogical meaning of the 4Cs  

- Learn how verbal and written communication skills are linked to each other 

- Gain ideas about numerous activities, tools and tips for teaching the 4Cs in any classroom  

- Become familiar with ICT tools to practice skills around the 4Cs 

- Discover the concrete and practical application of 4Cs in classroom 

- Learn how to observe and reflect on learning  

- Invent new creative solutions by applying the knowledge they learn to solve new problems  

- Gain knowledge about project based learning and implications of the 4Cs 

- Explore what is beyond 4Cs
