Personal and civic skills
Individual and civic skills are essential both for self-knowledge and for an ethical, responsible approach to taking action and interacting with others.
In a work environment that promotes the plurality of knowledge and methods, public debate and imagination, students are called upon to:
- Organise themselves, plan their tasks (individual and group) and manage stress.
- Sharpen their intellectual curiosity and their taste for research.
- Demonstrate intellectual honesty and audacity.
- Become aware of where they need to improve and aim for self-improvement.
- Dare to face difficulties and take risks.
- Explore, build and enhance their potential for expression by using a variety of languages (text, image, figures) and media.
- Express their point of view with sincerity and precision.
- Develop their capacity to anticipate issues and difficulties.
In an environment conducive to social and cultural diversity, collective intelligence and a collaborative approach, students are encouraged to:
Be tolerant, thoughtful and supportive.
- Accept their responsibilities as members of a community.
- Know how to listen and learn humility when sharing ideas.
- Strengthen their ability to adapt in various contexts (intellectual, professional, social, multicultural), to tailor their communication to the type of audience and situation.
- Develop their interpersonal skills, facilitate dialogue and collaboration.
- Contribute to collective problem-solving by drawing on the thoughts and experiences of each group member.
- Take initiatives, decisions, and unite a team around a project.
