How to teach academic skills? A single course will surely not suffice. Students need to work on their skills continuously, both at the university and in their daily lives. The Skill Deck - developed by Frank Léoné (Assistant professor Cognitive Psychology) - aims to help students achieve this. The cards provide them with a clear idea of what personal and communication skills mean and how students can work on developing them.
By using the cards, students come to a deeper understanding of how they are progressing and how well they are doing. They can use the cards for self-reflection, peer feedback and for discussion with their lecturer.
