In the world of work where the student will enter after graduation, it is also necessary and above all to be able to communicate, work in groups,control stress; in short, soft skills, that is, transversal skills are needed.

These are the relational and behavioral abilities that characterize the way in which we are placed in the workplace. They are called "soft" to distinguish them from "hard skills", purely technical and professional skills.

Soft skills are more difficult to develop than hard ones, as they are often the result of our sociocultural background, the result of personal and professional experiences and experiences. It is therefore important that students to be able to measure soft skills so that they can improve their various aspects. The session intend to promove some ideas to do it, for example using game-based techniques.
