CATEP Helping Faculty

Dropping soft/employability/transferable skills into existing classes can be somewhat daunting. Existing classes may be tightly structured with little time to spare for additional course material. The implementation of soft skills has to be accomplished through modification of the delivery method of the existing material. The NSF/ATE CATEP grant provides training and development activities in order to help faculty develop the techniques and ideas necessary to accomplish the goals. These activities include:

The soft (“employability”) skills referred to include:

Initially, these soft (“employability”) skills are being added to ACC and Aims CIS118 class – MS Office products. This class is required for all CIS students and most other disciplines. This class was chosen for its commonality and application to all subjects and disciplines. Other CTE (Career and Technical Education) classes may be included in this program in future semesters.
