The conference is a multiplier event for the Erasmus+ project 2014-1-RO01-KA201-002736_1 “Hard-Soft Skilling -Charting your career path” outputs and, in addition, an opportunity to bridge present and future successful initiatives that attempt to integrate highly transferable skill development into the everyday teaching and learning process.

The goal of the conference is to ensure long-term perspectives of including highly transferable skills into teaching on a larger scale, highlighting the importance of the issue.

Different approaches from other countries and across disciplines will be presented, potential application will be emphasized, and different models of practice will be explored through knowledge exchange.

Innovative, working models of alternative development practices will be presented in a way that will provoke stimulating and proactive dialogue and support deep learning.

The focus will be on how these programs are implemented, why they can work on a global level, what major challenges will have to be overcome and what challenges remain. Speakers will address questions of both policy and practice.

The conference is designed to offer the teaching tools created in the Erasmus+ project (especially Outputs O2, O4, O5, O6, O8, and O9), inspiration, critical understanding of the issue and the most important connection to an international support network with high potential of developing new ideas of collaboration. As a result participants would be more prepared to implement best practice examples in their own countries and communities. The conference intends to create an atmosphere of open participation that would demonstrate powerful network communication practiced in a professional framework, a stimulating environment where participants could learn and forge new partnerships.
