Global Skills I.

Global Skills I.

Individual seminars will consist of theoretical and practical introduction into global skills, which are deemed as inevitable in the context of the 21st century. We will specifically focus on enhancing communication skills (intercultural communication skills), collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and digital skills, which are so crucial nowadays. Students enrolled in the course will have a chance to experience global skills through a series of authentic tasks which will be assigned to individuals or pairs (groups) every week. Global skills can be also described as transferrable skills. So, the main aim of the course will be to equip attendants with specific skills they will use later in their professional as well as private lives.
