University of Queensland partnership
The IMPACT Centre is a very important and long-term partner of the University of Queensland Critical Thinking Project (UQCTP). The UQCTP and IMPACT teams have collaborated to co-design highly successful critical thinking programs delivered to over 9,000 primary and secondary school students across Queensland since 2012. These programs have resulted in improved critical thinking skills, transfer of these skills to general classroom learning and increased relative gains for students in NAPLAN literacy and numeracy assessments.
