Postgraduate Education Workshop Invitation

Postgraduate Education Workshop Invitation

11th November 2019, 13:30 - 5th December 2019, 16:30

The Edinburgh Futures Institute (EFI) will open in 2021, responding to the need for creative, connected and radical responses to a rapidly changing world. The EFI has recently appointed a number of academic Fellows from across the University to lead the development of new interdisciplinary postgraduate programmes, drawing on expertise from across all of the University’s Schools and Colleges. Central to the vision of the EFI is the co-creation of the curriculum with external partners that can have real-world impact by addressing challenges and issues faced in different sectors.  

To this end, the EFI would like to personally invite you to join them for a two-part workshop where you will learn about the exciting postgraduate programmes currently being created, and help them to co-design a new approach to higher education.

  
In the first workshop EFI will examine some of the programmes in development, reflect on the relationship between careers and learning, explore the ways in which external sectors are changing, and think about ways that the they can cultivate skills and capabilities that will be important for the future of your sector. 
 
In the second follow-up workshop you will build on your collective understanding of the programmes, and develop a series of future scenarios that explore new opportunities for collaboration that forge valuable relationships between education and the wider world.

If you would like to join EFI for what promises to be an inspiring two-part workshop, please register on their Eventbrite page.
