How do we prepare students for 21st century challenges beyond our classrooms? While the mandate of many university programs is not ‘job preparation’ (as it is in many college programs or professional faculties), we as post-secondary teachers have opportunities to support our students in developing a range of competencies to prepare them for life ‘after graduation.’ This workshop will zero-in on how we can foster and facilitate our students’ transferable, “professional” skills. We provide an overview of recent efforts to identify 21st century skills and the educational tools and strategies that can facilitate their development. Frameworks such as 4C’s competencies (in title) and Project-Based Learning can help us measure and assess students’ cognitive and social development. Participants will engage in individual and group activities to develop frameworks for integrating the 4C’s competencies into their tutorials and classes
