Measurement of Listening Skills
The project aims to make listening skills measurable and will allow people to test them individually using a questionnaire.
The questionnaire will be available in different languages from Autumn 2020 and will be accessible through a digital platform developed in the project.
The personal strengths and weaknesses in listening will be outlined and suggestions for personal development will be offered through "learning nuggets", as a first step available to everyone to improve listening awareness and develop their listening skills.
The general purpose of the project is to demonstrate that listening skills can be acquired and that there are learning and training opportunities accessible to all people interested in improving their communication and relationship skills.
The TES partners of the project will put into the project all their experience in training TES volunteers in listening. The scientific and technical partners will ensure that the tools developed meet the scientific and quality requirements.
The project is innovative in the following aspects:
1.It will develop a tool to measure listening skills
2.It will provide individuals with information on their listening competence (part of their soft skills)
3.It will provide support and suggestions to develop listening skills
4.It will be easily accessible through a digital platform, in 7 languages, at no cost
