Course description

Achieving the set goals is essential to obtain the proper knowledge. There is a difference between the so-called “hard skills” and “soft skills”. Hard skills are professional skills, while soft skills are the personal skills that are obviously much more difficult to measure or prove, like a degree or career advancement. Work experience, attitude, communication skills, and emotional intelligence are part of “soft skills”.

The general objective of the faculty is to highlight the importance of good communication skills, to introduce communication models to students and to develop their communication skills. Communication is not just verbal and non-verbal communication. We should also mention active listening and other skills that contribute to the right communication. These include presentation skills, writing skills, personal skills, but also study skills. When talking about communication we have to mention assertiveness as well. In addition to interpersonal communication, it is very important to emphasize the importance of e-communication. In this elective course the students will learn the terms of modern communication as well as skills needed for vets to perform their tasks effectively while being anywhere in the world.
