Soft Skills for Strong Teachers - Florence

Rating: 5/56 users

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 participants will have the opportunity 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;

· Focus on emotional awareness to improve public speaking, organization, time management

It was an inspiring, challenging, collaborating and fulfilling week... A very well structured and organized course. Susan was more than amazing! Her unique mindset helped me discover new perspectives of life and of course new ways of teaching. A unique course full of creativity, emotions, surprises, fun, communication, professional and personal development... For sure, i loved it!

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.

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.
