Is Your Institution Future Proof? Foresight for Higher Education

Date Thursday, Dec 7  Time   –    Room Knight

Being ready for uncertainty means being ready to adapt to seemingly low probability events – quickly, fundamentally and often. And it means being aware that solutions that worked in the past cannot solve the problems we increasingly face as Higher Education institutions today or in the future. In this interactive, dynamic session and with a focus on learners’ needs, we will apply foresight methodologies and processes to our ever-changing sector. Based on global trends, radical ideas and lessons learnt we will systematically uncover what uncertainty and foresight can do for providers of education and for consumers of learning. Join this session and leave with a clearer vision on how to prepare for ever-more change - and an exciting future!
