Description

Traditional education revolves around the teaching of technical skills, especially within STEM fields. However, soft skills—broadly, communication and intrapersonal skills—are essential within all fields, especially those frequently involving research and collaboration. However, the focus on teaching students to be adept communicators and team members remains woefully underdeveloped.

Innovations and Technologies for Soft Skill Development and Learning is a pivotal reference source that explores the mental and psychological growth of individual learners at different stages of education concerning soft skills and the need for innovation and creativity to lead a successful career. Highlighting topics including higher education, emotional intelligence, and student behavior, this book is ideally designed for educators, curriculum developers, instructional designers, administrators, policymakers, academicians, researchers, and students.
