The goal of the study is to characterize the practice of using ecology-related didactic means when arranging and conducting interactive training at universities to develop critical
Materials and methods. To represent didactic means and materials for critical thinking development the authors have introduced personally developed interactive ecology-related tasks and techniques of implementation thereof.
Results.

Conclusions. The article defines the practice of using didactic interactive ecology- related means and materials, displays techniques of stimulation (development, improvement) of critical thinking, gives examples of the author’s interactive tasks that can be conditionally considered in the scope of “thinking” and “interaction”. Integral, system and systematic implementation of such didactic means at universities stimulates the intellectual activity and promotes enhancement of student’s thinking culture.
