Szoft készségek erős tanárok számára

Concept based on an Erasmus+ Project by our partners in Cluj-Napoca Bridge Language Study House

Description

Hard skills, also known as academic knowledge and know-how, are often the direct focus of education and the skills considered necessary to get your foot in the door of many fields of employment. Soft skills, however, are the interpersonal and intrapersonal abilities that not only help you keep that job and advance in your career – they help you live better in every aspect of your life.

During this course, educators will deepen their understanding of Soft Skills and reflect on their own abilities in its macro-areas such as Leadership, Relational Skills, Self-Awareness, Creativity, Problem-Solving and Communication. Through hands-on activities that combine these skills, participants will learn to transform the prevailing theories of communication and emotional and social intelligence into practical experiences in their classroom. While Soft Skills are sometimes conveyed in the curriculum through special projects and after-school activities, this course proposes ways to incorporate them into every facet of the school day.

Learning Outcomes

The course will help the participants to:  
  • Improve and facilitate communication and active listening;
  • Reflect upon motivation and how to foster it;
  • Gain insight into the principles of leadership and collaboration;
  • Boost creativity and problem-solving skills;

Reviews about this course

The trainer was well-prepaired and professional, but the time was not enough to cover all the topics planned, some of them were just left out. The focus was on communication and creativity but for me it would have been interesting to learn more about positive psychology and stress management. The city tour was good and I really enjoyed the 1 day excursion on Saturday. As a whole it was a worthy course, nice location, I can recommend it.

Dublin

The course was very well organized. Lectures were interesting and dynamic, including many workshops that were very interesting. Teacher Susan Gagliano has been an excellent conductor of workshops. She gave a special note of sympathy and humor to everything we did.

Andreja Lekić

The course was very interesting. The content was up-to-date and interesting. Work was dynamic. A guided tour of the city was very instructive and fun at the same time. The whole day tour of the Irish country was very well organized and guided. I highly recommend to all teachers!

IRENA ČREŠNAR

The course was very professionally organised. The teacher was very inspiring, interesting as well as knowledgeable. There was a lot of practical work, a lot of examples of how to incorporate soft skills into our everyday teaching. I would recommend this course to all teachers.
