The Lack of Listening Skills in Science

I want to compare an example of a professional soft skill course with our Learning to Listen (L2L) project. In general, soft skills help improve professional teams with social and emotional learning, i.e. diversity. After reading course outline ‘Developing Scientists “Soft” Skills’ by Wendy S. Gordon, I began evaluating the soft skill course with our L2L project. In my analysis, Gordon explained a course that helps scientists communicate and work with other scientists as a team. In my opinion, the soft skill course lacks the social interaction we learned in preparation for interacting with the public. Without learning to listen skills, the science and engineering community have learned soft skills that do not relate to interaction with the public.

The social or soft skills from our L2L has a greater value to professionals, such as scientists and engineers when interacting with the public.
