Abstract

Earlier this year I attended a symposium at which people examined the nature and role of generic skills in higher education institutions. From the discussions that were held, it was clear that there existed a number of different beliefs about the characteristics of generic skills. In this paper I examine some of these beliefs, try to explain why I think that these beliefs do not serve to enrich our understanding of generic skills and attempt to present some alternative, more fruitful views about the nature of generic skills.
