Format and Methodology
The Futures Foresight and Horizon Scanning online course is a 7-week open online course facilitated by the DELTA Team at ITCILO. This online course will build on a new online course design methodology focused on the user experience (UX), lessons learned from ITCILO past online courses and several pilot foresight workshops that took place since December 2016.
The online course “Futures Foresight and Horizon Scanning” will engage participants in inspiring self-study and reflection, mini virtual workshops and brainstorming sessions to gain experience with the different tools and methods available. They will explore how to structure and convey emerging visions for the future and discuss the implications for their own organization, institution, and professional and societal contexts.
Through these activities, participants will gain an appreciation of the unique potential of futures, foresight and horizon scanning to shape and propel policies and initiatives towards positive outcomes, even in the face of overwhelming challenges.
