Welcome to NECT Comprehension Across the Curriculum Course

This ‘Comprehension Across the Curriculum’ course has a number of aims.

Firstly, this course aims to raise awareness about the importance of teaching comprehension and critical thinking in all subjects, and in all phases.

Secondly, it aims to share some well-researched processes and strategies, that build comprehension skills and critical thinking. We need to prioritise these skills for our learners, as they prepare to live in an ever-changing and developing world.

Thirdly, the course aims to illustrate the use of some of these reading processes and strategies through different examples, both in text and video format.
And finally, it aims to inspire some critical and creative thinking around the Covid-19 challenges for the education sector.
