Today, the one certainty we face is change. Employers require graduates to possess not only disciplinary knowledge but also “soft” skills. In this session we share an organizing framework developed to better work with generic skill development. This framework can be used as an individual guide for personal goal setting, reflection, or employment preparation. It can also be used to guide the structuring and delivery of courses for those who plan to teach.

Presented by Kate Cassidy, Director of Community Learning, Youth University and Continuing Education.
