Utrecht University: "Learning in a safe environment where it is OK to make mistakes" 

Soft skills: indispensable, even in academia. For example, if you’re doing qualitative research by conducting interviews. Asking clear and neutral questions, putting the person being interviewed at ease, intervening and getting to the bottom of things, these are all skills that you can acquire by practicing and practicing. This can be done effectively through online training.

In this case study we will describe how we teach students at Utrecht University how to conduct interviews through online training at TrainTool. We spoke with dr. Ilse van Liempt, assistant professor of Earth Sciences at Utrecht University, about her experiences.
