Communication, self-direction, problem-solving, collaboration, and informed thinking. Whether you call these transferable skills, cross-curricular standards, 21st century skills, or by any other title, they are critical for success in postsecondary education and careers. Many educators wonder how to break down transferable skills into their components; how to teach, assess, and give feedback on components; and how to integrate components with content knowledge and skills in authentic ways. This interactive workshop will give educators a chance to work with a variety of tools and resources designed to help meet these challenges, and participants will explore effective practices for teaching and assessing these skills across content areas.
