In these 10 Skills courses, you’ll have the chance to really dive into each skill and think about its relevance to your life. Here are a few things you can expect from the learning experiences in each course.
You already know that you’ll be learning about a different key employability skill in each course, so we don’t have to go over that again. Instead, let’s take some time to think about how you’ll learn. Sure, we’ll give you the information you need about the skills and make some suggestions about how to apply them, but you’ll need to do the real work when it comes to bringing the skills into your life and your work.
This isn’t a typical textbook-based course. Yes, there will be some reading. But a lot of work with skills is about thinking, reflecting, and doing.
Here’s how you’ll be asked to learn in these 10 Skills courses.
Watch the tutorial and download the Student Guide from the Student Guide & Course Docs tab. You’ll discover how to navigate through your 10 Skills courses.
Each course contains Challenges, which are groups of short lessons around a topic. Some of the challenges have short questions associated with them, while others simply list the learning goals for that section.
Finally, each of the 10 Skills courses will have a Touchstone. The Touchstone is a reflection- and application-based project that you’ll work on for the entire course. When you start the course, you’ll download the Touchstone document and save it to your computer or device. As you finish each challenge you’ll be directed to open the Touchstone and complete the section related to that challenge. When you’re done with all of the challenges, you’ll upload your completed Touchstone and submit it for credit toward your badge.
