The researchers and experts of the university pedagogy have developed the models of generic academic skills in cooperation with study psychologists and career services. The objective of models is to visualise the different generic academic skills the degrees should produce at different stages of studies both at the bachelor's and master's degree levels.
The generic academic skills are described in models as follows:
- Study environment skills
- Self-regulation and management skills
- Communication, interaction and collaboration skills
- Research skills and scientific thinking
- Identifying own expertise
The aim of models is to describe skills which are common to all the disciplines and give tools and practices to support learning of generic academic skills. Model gives also examples of learning outcomes of the generic academic skills integrated to domain-specific studies.
