The Effect of Nudges on Video-based Training for Soft Skills
Speaker: Professor Tanja Mitrovic
Professor, Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, University of Canterbury
Videos are a powerful way to learn soft skills such as communicating, negotiating, and collaborating, where context and the ability to see different perspectives is crucial. The team of Professor Mitrovic has developed an active video watching platform (AVW-Space) to aid engagement with video content by providing means for constructive learning. In this talk, Professor Mitrovic will discuss the features of AVW-Space and describe two spaces developed for presentation skills and for communication in face-to-face meetings.
