Conference “Knowledge Exchange: Enhancing soft skills through active learning for education and employment”, 27th May 2021

The EU project eLene4Life supports curriculum innovation in higher education (HE) and the corporate sector through the development of active learning approaches for transversal skills, with the ultimate aim of improving students’ employability.

eLene4Life (Erasmus+) has explored the use of active learning methods in universities and companies for the development and strengthening of soft skills, developed from this a collection of methods and tools of good practice (Dynamic Toolkit) and tested them in pilot projects in 4 partner countries. Although the use of active teaching and learning methods requires more effort, the results of the project indicate a strong interest in this approach.

Hosted by our eLene4Life partner, the School of Education and Social Work at the University of Dundee, this free online event will not only share key insights from the eLene4Life project, but also provides the opportunity for community building and exchange. 

We invite you to register and to submit a lightning talk to share your own experience, tips and approaches to help students, teachers, companies and employees in developing soft skills through active learning. 

Details of the conference, registration and submission of a lightning presentation can be accessed at this link.  We are hoping that you will be interested in participating in this conference and that you will share this information with your contacts.
