Employers demand a talent pool armed with both hard and soft skills. Sadly, the focus on the development of soft skills ends somewhere between kindergarten and college. This 20-Minute Mentor (Opens in a new window) discusses core power skills which include: teamwork, communication, positive attitude, critical thinking, professionalism, and time management. You’ll also learn a four-phase approach to integrating soft-skill education into a curriculum and how to design-related activities to unleash the full potential of your students.
Upon completion of this program, you’ll be able to:
• Have an increased awareness of the need to integrate soft skills into the curriculum
- Learn how to infuse curriculum with activities that focus on developing soft skills but complement the hard skills they are teaching in the class
- Be able to consider ways to integrate soft skill development directly into the curriculum, develop a new, standalone course, or offer as continuing workforce education (CWE) program offering
