21st Century Skills Workshop Series: Communication (Danang)

February 18, 2020 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
When: Feb 18, 2020, 1:00PM - 2:00PM

The communication workshop is designed to equip faculty with skills to help their students hone their communication, not only in their academic studies but for everyday life. This workshop will guide faculty through communication components as well as through guided activities.


The need for strong Communication abilities is evident in today’s classrooms and work places the world over. College graduates are leaving the academic arena unprepared for the challenges their new career will pose. While many graduates may have the theoretical knowledge, they lack certain skill sets that allow them to put that theory into practice. By teaching a soft skill, such as communication, through an Active Learning methodology, students will have the opportunity to not only put the theoretical knowledge they have learned into practice but will also be doing this while developing a very important workforce-readiness skill employers are desperately seeking.

This highly-interactive workshop will focus on Communication development through the lens of Active Learning, prompting faculty to participate in various activities and discussions. Faculty in this workshop can expect to delve into different types of Communication and practice to gain a better sense of understanding, not only of its importance, but also how Communication strategies can be utilized in the classroom. Faculty familiar with Active Learning will learn to utilize methods to integrate Communication into their classrooms and course projects, which could exist at a micro or macro level.
