Critical thinking is considered as one of the most essential skills in 21 century that is not adequately developed among graduates. There are variety of approaches suggested in literature for promoting critical thinking. However, there is a dearth of studies that synthesize the previous studies and provide integrative reports on strategies for strengthening critical thinking. This presentation includes results of a literature review related to issues and strategies for using critical thinking in higher education.
