Join us for our workshop on Integrating Human Skills into the Curriculum / Workplace


November 16 - November 18, 2021, online
Please note: This event is exclusive to J-WEL members. 
 

Workshop Description

This workshop will provide you with a variety of approaches for introducing human skills into your curriculum or workplace. Over the course of three days, you will have the opportunity to interact with a panel of experts who have integrated human skills into their instruction in different contexts, as well as with other participants having common interest in a particular model of integration. The workshop will provide an opportunity to learn how MIT and other institutions or organizations are approaching these skills that are essential for academic success as well as success in the future workplace.  Throughout the workshop, you will have the opportunity to analyze the affordances and constraints of various models, as well as determine priority skills for your context. The experience will culminate with your own document detailing an approach to trial at your own institution or organization.  

Enrollment in the workshop is limited to the J-WEL community member institutions, to allow you to engage with others more effectively and develop a community of practice around shared interests. The workshop will leverage an online format to encourage interaction with peers and MIT staff.
