Philosophers and Critical Thinkers in Senior Schools (PACTISS) is the online presence of the Australian Philosophy Teachers’ Network (APTN). It is a completely free searchable database of philosophy and critical thinking teaching resources.

UQ Critical Thinking Project enables teachers to articulate reasoning skills within the context of disciplinary knowledge, but in a way that empowers students to transfer the language, skill set and cognitive awareness associated with critical thinking across into other areas of their lives as well as other disciplines.
