Introduction to Futures Studies
Shermon Cruz

Through iterative lectures, creative visualizations, reflective observations and action learning, case studies and games, this course exposes and engages students to the theory and practice of futures thinking. The course aims to challenge students to look further out, to see beyond the horizon, to identify emerging issues and trends, and to imagine alternative and preferred futures within an action learning context. By inspiring and engaging to imagine better possibilities, they can play a more active role in shaping the future that they want.
