• Immersive game as a skills assessement and training methodology
    The I-SKILLS project, co-funded by the European Commission, aims to foster innovation skills as key competences for improving employability of PhD students and holders in SMEs, thus promoting the transfer of innovation to the market and contributing to a more successful innovation management.

    The method chosen by the I-SKILLS project to help assess and develop innovation skills is through the development of an e-assessment methodology in the form of an immersive game in 3D environment. This game can be implemented at formal and informal learning contexts and is based on a wide variety of interactive tools, exercises and training material.

    Do you think an immersive game is a good way to assess and develop soft skills?

    Based on your experience, how is/could be i-skills training introduced into PhD programmes?, how do they include the business/managerial competences requested by enterprises?.
    Do you know doctoral programmes including courses on that issues?, which methods do they include?, are them maybe combining the theoretical/research part with practical periods like internship?.
    Do you know any case of PhD students or holders using e-methodologies, such as serious game, to train their skills?

    Are e-assessment methodologies (like serious game) really useful for training transversal key competencies?, if so, why?.
    What about skills assessment?, is it practicable and reliable to use those practices for evaluating competencies?, is it possible to create a serious game for properly training and assessing skills?
    Which advantages offer them over traditional methodologies of skill assessment (such as standardised tests and attitudinal questionnaires)?, and, do them present any drawback?.
    Do you find that they are becoming increasingly popular in business, higher education and school environments?. Have you ever found any case of serious game or similar?.
    Are those methodologies more practicable outside of the formal learning contexts (such as in the working context)?, Why?.
