Soft skills for Computer scientists: not a soft option

Within the Division of Computing, School of Science and Technology at the University of Northampton, Rashmi Dravid working closely with Andrea Duncan from DELTA-E, University of Northampton  looking at the personal development of the 'soft skills' for Computing students. This builds on and refines some earlier work by Jonathan Adams (School of Science and Technology) and Andrea on developing these soft skills in Engineering students.

As part of this project implementing the material in a web based form is being carried out by a second year computing student. Some this work is due to be presented at the "Learning Dialogues" Conference on 13th May 2010 (see http://www2.northampton.ac.uk/learningteaching/conference10/abstracts/Abstracts-006 for more detail)
