Total Credits: .3 Workshop CEU(s)

Terri Fleming
3 Hours



How often have you heard from employers that they are looking to hire graduates with the book knowledge and essential soft skills needed to be successful in the workplace? Many employers believe soft skills are just as important, if not more so, than hard skills. As an educator, how can you teach soft skills to college students? During this workshop, participants learn about the necessary soft skills most employers desire. Participants leave with a set of strategies they can use to help their students develop soft skills that are critical for future success.

By the end of this workshop, participants know or will be able to:

  • Describe employability skills.
  • Know the difference between soft and hard skills.
  • Summarize common skills desired by employers.
  • Describe ways to help students improve their soft skills.

Plans for Audience Participation and Interaction:
Role play, discussion, and poll questions.
