(1) Future Focussed

While the future remains unpredictable, we know that it will be different, and that we need to focus forward and imagine the possibilities. Future focussed teaching provides students with the skills to adapt what is known to accommodate the new; to solve unpredictable and messy problems; to operate flexibly and to understand sustainable practices for self, industry and the world.  Future focussed design of learning asks big questions, offers options and pays attention to the strengths of diversity and perspective.

Submissions under this theme will highlight how we are designing learning and teaching to connect students together in new ways,

  • challenging them to think forward,
  • explore possibilities and think riskily to produce new knowledge and strategies.
  • They will highlight how academics and professional staff are connecting to create new environments with unexpected opportunities and new approaches.
