Agenda

There is a growing recognition that the careers of the future will emphasise team work, creative collaboration and soft communication skills. In this session we will consider how the mediation can-do statements shine a light on soft skills in communication, and their relevance to educational pathways and employability. We will also look at how can-do statements for mediating texts can provide clear goals for synthesising and developing ideas from sources.
