You have to finish all tasks to get the badge
Task no.1
Evidence verified by: one activity organiser
In this task you are going to create your own objective to become a little bit better in Critical Thinking. Use the SMART methodology (see resources in the activity). When creating an objective think about if what you want is important and that you can achieve it in a short while.

Critical Thinking needs to become a habit, and creating habits will take a longer time. Be happy with little steps in your progress. Also think about the needed resources, do you have the resources or otherwise can you get them? If not, then change your objective so you can achieve it.

Describe your SMART objective and explain your thoughts about the necessary resources to achieve your objective.
Task no.2
Evidence verified by: one activity organiser
Now you have a SMART objective, you can start creating your action plan. Choose action steps that are concrete, achievable and attainable. Make sure that the steps are clear and not only vague ideas. Describe who is responsible for these steps and where you can find support that will assist you in the process of reaching your objective. When do you want to have achieved each step? Be very specise, for example by writing a date of achievement.
Task no.3
Evidence verified by: one activity organiser
Describe how you are going to evaluate the achievement of your objective. And how you if necessary create an updated actionplan to follow up on your progress in Critical thinking.

You can search for 'action plan templates' online. If you start using them, start with a simple sheet and don't make it to complicated at the beginning.
