    On/about

    Hi,
    Please help me to use an appropriate preposition in the following context. Also check my punctuation.

    "Students who attend the MUN conference, gain skills, experience and knowledge (on/about) resolutions, teamwork, public speaking, debate, social dynamics, negotiation and research."

    Thanks,

    There should not be a comma after conference. Both on and about work. I have a slight preference for about, but others may differ on this.
