Here are some questions for the 15th of November Webinar.
See you!

Question 1 - How to motivate the School Board to invest in Transferable Skills programs? What arguments can we use?

Question 2 - What framework (List of Transferable Skills) should we use to develop Transferable Skills programs/courses?

Question 3 - What approach should we use to develop Transferable Skills programs? to credit the Transferable Skills courses in the academic study plan, substituting, for instance, optional/elective curricular units (integrating approach to the development of transversal competencies) OR make the Transferable Skills courses ble to be attended extracurricularly by those students who intend to develop further theses competencies (bolting-on approach to the development of transversal competencies) [7] without crediting them to their study plans. 

Question 4 - How can we assess the development of Transferable Skills?
