We aim at developing a semester course to train thinking skills for 1st year bachelor students who just entered a university. Our goal in the educational program is to let learners perceive the isomorphism between thinking process for self-dialogue and one for discussion, and motivate them to learn the logical structure of self-dialogue through workshop and to acquire meta-cognition abilities through leading the discussion. We give knowledge co-creation task with a case that requires them to perform their meta-cognitive activities. In this paper, we will discuss the theoretical foundation and the design intention of a thinking skill development program. Then, we will report the implementation of the semester program and interesting analysis of the data collected.
