Nine keys to the skills that support Humanities and STEM careers

The Skills Studio

The Skills Studio program can be taught as distinct workshops or as two themes, focused on Humanities or STEM skills. Both streams, Humanities, and STEM comprise nine skills, three of which are common to both streams. The skills equip people to explore their innate potential in the 21st century and to understand their strengths and interests.

about the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

High school and College students are taught by 19th-century methods, often curricula that hasn't changed for decades. The result is that young people graduate with knowledge but without life-skills. The credentials they work hard for are of minimal or no value to employers and they are not equipped with skills that enable innovation, analytical thinking and creative problem-solving.

How does your innovation work in practice?

Experiential Learning

Workshop Format - 14-hours of Experiential Learning

Skills Studio uses a training model called Experiential Learning that incorporates "reflection" on what has been done. By using a cycle of "doing, reflecting, changing, doing, reflecting" the skills are consciously applied and students recognize that they are refining one or more of the skills.

Programs can be designed to reflect a specific objective or interest and can be delivered in a school setting, over about 8-weeks or as a 2-day workshop.

How has it been spreading?

News of the program has spread organically through the high school communities in Australia resulting in confirmed plans by at least ten more high schools to run the program in Term 2 of the 2021 school year.
