There has been a growing demand for specialists in a highly competitive labor market. As a result, most young specialists need help to find a suitable job or corresponding to the ever-changing and constantly developing market (Adri et al, 2020; Ghani & Daud, 2018; Griffin & Care, 2014). Therefore, the core problem has established concerns among educators and instructional designers on tackling shifting workplace requirements and integrating digital literacy and life skills in the curriculum for ESP students (Nadiyah & Faaizah, 2015; Branch, 2009).


The workshop’s primary objective is to present a successful case study of implementing the new brand course “XXI Century skills” at Kimyo International University in Tashkent and teach private sector workers, tertiary education teachers, and instructional designers how to use the ADDIE learning model and the framework for 21st Century Skills Learning to design a syllabus and provide meaningful, effective and student-centered instruction to prepare a 21st-century skilled specialist for the labor market. The workshop consists of hands-on, interactive activities that will help educators to develop practical and instructional materials for curriculum and syllabus design in ESP, CLIL, and EAP contexts.


The presenter will deliver a short presentation of the case study of the successful implementation of the course XXI Century Skills, which integrates Life skills, 4C of the 21st Century, and literacy skills for pre-service teachers and the ADDIE model used when designing a syllabus. Then, the presenter will conduct interactive activities allowing participants to get the most out of the model and learn how to develop their syllabi using the framework of 21st Century Skills and the Addie model.
