Pecha-Kucha Method to Promote the Acquisition of Soft Skills in Online Higher Education


The latest neuroscientific evidence in the educational field shows the great importance of helping students to be an active part of their learning process, which must undoubtedly acquire a deep and significant character that make it useful throughout life. For this, the acquisition of soft skills is of paramount importance. However, the development of these skills becomes complex in the higher education stage, even more so when it is developed in online environments. For this reason and in that context, an experience has been developed in which students have collaboratively summarized different didactic units of a subject through the Canva tool, using interactive forums to communicate and share their presentations, elaborated following the Pecha Kucha method. The results of the study show that the experience developed has contributed to improve the soft skills of the participants, among others: creativity, critical thinking, communicative competence of oral expression, capacity for analysis and synthesis, and capacity for teamwork.
