What if learning environments and educational initiatives were more like regenerative ecosystems?
During this microcredential, participants will engage with the challenge of designing educational environments tuned to learning and transformation, in response to and in anticipation of inevitable change. Using a novel approach to rethink creative possibilities, you'll delve into regenerative approaches operating across different disciplines, professions or cultures.
In the process, you'll explore how such approaches go beyond sustainable and resilient practices in responding to shocks and stresses in systems, building your capabilities to do and be more than was possible before. You'll explore how such ideas about regeneration can shape educational initiatives. Working with external partners, you'll collectively explore regenerative principles as they engage in a challenge-based project and envisage transformative pathways to ethical futures.
Taking design-based inquiry approaches, you'll create and trial small-scale probes to gain insights into future-oriented learning initiatives that anticipate change and generate opportunities for creative, bold reform.
