What futures are possible in education? Education is rapidly changing locally and globally stimulated by the evolution of digital technologies worldwide. While it is difficult to predict the future, foresighting techniques can help us to capture the dynamic of change by placing today's reality within the context of tomorrows' possibilities.
Scenario Planning for Educators (SP4Ed) is a free online workshop that will introduce educators in all sectors of education to the technique of scenario building to improve strategic planning with the aim of drawing us towards better futures.
A MOOC-like workshop in association with OERu and the University of Canterbury e-Learning Lab.
Co-led by Niki Davis, University of Canterbury Professor of e-Learning (who will introduce the DEANZ2016 scenarios project) and Wayne Mackintosh, Founding Director of the OER Foundation (who brings extensive experience in design and planning open education). The workshop will bring thought leaders on educational futures together to think about how we can make the future happen.
This innovative workshop provides a ‘taste’ of the OERu course ‘Change with Digital Technologies in Education’ (#OERuCDTE), which runs in parallel with the University of Canterbury postgraduate education course EDEM630 with the same title.
