In this session of lunch&LEARN, Kathryn Hess, associate Vice President for Student Affairs presents the outcomes of the working group on transversal skills.
The working group has been looking into the skillsets currently taught through EPFL’s engineering curricula to compare them to the current social, environmental, and economic needs and trends in engineering education. This analysis serves as the basis to reflect on how transversal skills can better be integrated into EPFL’s teaching practices.
The presentation is also be supported by the team at LEARN, Helena Kovacs and Julien Delisle, who have analyzed the prevalence of transversal skills across EPFL’s course documents and produced a comprehensive state of the art illustrated through heatmaps.
The session compares this analysis and the new approaches of Hess’ working group, to engage participants in conversations around what transversal skills they find important, how to integrate some of them in their curriculum and continue to provide excellence in their teaching.
Sounds interesting. You can access the recording here.

The lunch&LEARN series was created by the Center LEARN to stimulate the exchange between learning science researchers and everyone at EPFL interested in teaching. Our sessions seek to either translate learning research into teaching practice or provide evidence and insights from teaching practice. Video recordings and slides from previous sessions can be found on the lunch&LEARN webpage.
