When University students enrol in Physics courses, they are usually more aware of the “physics” content than of the generic skills that they learn along the way. By contrast, employers are often more interested in the students’ generic skills. During the past year, we have aimed to increase staff awareness of generic skills through workshops and discussions, and through a greater emphasis on generic skills in unit outlines and assessment tasks. We thereby aimed to improve the students’ awareness of this component of their education.
