Focusing on Soft Skills Development – Liberal Arts Approaches for Teaching in the Field of ICT

April 6 @ 4:00 pm5:00 pm

Soft skills are meanwhile represented in almost all engineering curricula. Yet, the integration is often artificial even though these skills are particularly helpful already in the early stages of the studies. In this webinar, we will discuss combining concepts from art to teach complex engineering problems, already at undergraduate levels. This helps to activate soft skills such as creativity, communication, critical thinking, and teamwork to better understand complex concepts in ICT. Based on first experiences from courses taught at universities, we will discuss best practices of integrating soft skills with hard engineering facts – using art as an integrative concept. We see this as a first step towards widespread use of such a new teaching methodology for engineering-focused study programs in the EU and beyond.
