Soft skills development through video gaming

 

This is 5 ECTS course where students (PhD or late master students) will learn about and enhance three types of their own soft skills, i.e., Cognitive Flexibility, Team Management skill, and Judgement and Decision-Making skill.

Students attend a five-day session in Reykjavík, Iceland August 8–12, 2022 that includes instruction, student presentation of own research project and participation in coaching sessions for each soft skill. Following, students have homework including 12 hours of online game playing for each soft skill (total of 36 hours) and answering two short surveys for each soft skill.

  Funding: Students need to organize and pay for own travel, food, and accommodation. They can apply for grants from their universities (e.g., through Erasmus+).

  Overlap with former courses: The course is run in collaboration with the VERSA-project. Students that have taken similar courses at Aurora Universities at Tarragona in Spain, Innsbruck in Austria or Vrije University Amsterdam on above mentioned soft skill cannot participate in this one and receive credits.
