We will enable students to communicate about themselves and their ideas, as well as develop their own narratives. They will be open to receiving feedback and adapt to different situations, demonstrating the following attributes:

Communication

The skills needed to present themselves, their work and their ideas, to inspire others and respond to feedback.

Connectivity

The ability to collaborate with others, create networks and develop and contribute to communities of practice.

Storytelling

The ability to demonstrate their unique talents, abilities and experiences to others in an engaging manner.
