Generic Competencies Project

Major deliverables of the project


The processes and deliverables have been developed with the specific objectives of the project in mind.

  1. Individual packages custom-designed for 13 departments/faculties, including:

    • video-clips of workplace scenarios role-played by senior students,

    • workbooks to stimulate discussion and reflection about the importance of the generic competencies portrayed in the video-clips to the graduate's success in the professional field,

    • workbooks to guide senior students in the role of peer facilitators,

    • online versions of the awareness-raising packages developed to facilitate the administration process and create wider access to the materials,

    • an online reflection on the experience, with an evaluation rubric based on the SOLO Taxonomy for use by department co-ordinators to assess the quality of students' reflections, and

    • Nine follow-up packages to build on to the awareness raising about selected competencies.


  3. Peer facilitator training packages, including:

    • video-clips of situations likely to arise in group facilitation, and

    • workbooks to facilitate the students' discussion and reflection on these issues, and some tips for addressing them.
