Abstract

At Lund University two projects were conducted with the aim to strengthen and systematise students’ communication training in science and engineering education. The core of the projects was a course on communication teaching, addressing the content teachers. During the course the participants developed, implemented, evaluated and reported on a communication component in their courses. In parallel, the directors of studies were given support in making a plan for the progression of learning outcomes through the curriculum. In this paper we summarise 85 teachers’ experiences of integrating communication training in their courses. We discuss the opportunities and challenges of integral communication teaching in science and engineering education. Our concluding remark is that content teachers can successfully conduct communication training, given that they are provided with further education and organisational support.
