Discussion-based MOOC for teachers

The eLene4Life MOOC “Active Learning for Soft Skills Development” is a free, open, online course about innovative teaching and learning practices for soft skills enhancement. It is hosted on Polimi Open Knowledge, the MOOC platform of Politecnico di Milano.

This MOOC is mainly for higher education teachers and trainers who recognise the importance of potentiating such skills in students and who want to improve their effective support for students to help them achieve this aim. It is also for those who have already actively engaged students in their lessons, but still want to re-think the proposed activity and enhance the results of this interaction working on soft and digital soft skills even further.

The MOOC focus on sharing experiences, fostering reflection, and stimulating discussion among educators across Europe, to support them in the organisation of active learning approaches for soft skills. To discover more the on results from the first edition, see the MOOC Improvement report.
