The Australian student voice on the soft skills needed for the future, and how universities can integrate these skills into their teaching

It also consults eight academic experts (including Professor Matthew Allen from the Institute for Social Change) on:
- What these soft skills are
- Why they are important
- How universities can integrate the most needed soft skills into their teaching
- How these soft sills can be put into practice
