Pathway Study Skills, Intercultural Competence and Advanced Literacies 7,5 Credits
Course ContentsThe course includes content that can create and develop agency in individuals. Agency means having the ability to take action or to choose what action to take. The course content includes knowledge and skills that are considered to be 21st century skills that can create agency in different contexts. Included in this are the four Cs of 21st century learning; collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity.
The two main areas explored are study skills and life skills, as well as the advanced literacies needed for both. Because the concept of student agency varies across cultures and develops over a lifetime, the content of the course is adapted through differentiated learning and blended learning modules. Furthermore, the course content includes tools to bridge participation gaps and the digital divide; joy of learning, intercultural skills, digital literacy and development of participatory culture. The necessary theoretical framework and understanding is paired with practice. The horizontal aim is to develop and strengthen student skills for participating in higher education, life-long learning and global citizenship through group work, social engagement, peer learning, reflective learning and autonomous learning whilst developing agency, ability to reconcile tensions and dilemmas, intercultural communication skills, metacognitive skills, information literacy and critical thinking.
