Entrepeneur.com recently published an article that says the top reasons people are fired or not hired is that they lack soft skills, aka: communication, collaboration, time management, adaptability, critical thinking, etc. Not having these skills is getting a lot of people fired, and since there is nothing soft about getting fired, let's call and view them as they really are: essential skills. This workshop is about how to emphasize these essential skills in the classroom, from designing daily collaborative activities to teaching students how to adapt to new technologies, all to prepare students to enter the modern workforce ready to survive and thrive.
