Why do you like this project?

Soft skills is the next generations priority focus in education. Talents such as innovation and creativity, critical thinking and decision making are increasingly valued by employers. But, starting from the term itself to how to validate, assess and quantify soft skills are still challenging. So, I like the effort this project takes to shed some light on such a grey, yet a popular-on-screen topic.

What are the challenges you will be facing to complete your tasks in this project?

As a researcher in the project, the main challenges I assume is related to quantification of the soft skills. Therefore with a pre-assumption that the other WPs provide a solid theoretical base that can be used to identify and translate the soft skills and user needs to functions  in a platform, the team I am involved in will touch the perimeter of creating an environment for assessing, matching and educating soft skills for increased employability.

What do you hope to achieve in this project?

To develop a mechanism for mapping the composition of identified soft skills in courses tailor made for  soft skills development.
