How might we design and trial collective learning opportunities to generate new insights, practices and initiatives?

In this subject, participants engage with a creative range of design provocations to question and rethink how collaboration across multiple disciplines and professions could generate learning communities open to change. They critically explore various design methods and inquiry approaches from different fields while creating a series of educational provotypes. As participants prototype a transdisciplinary learning experience or practice, they distil parameters and principles shaping the design of that initiative and create a proposal for trialling a small-scale, safe-to-fail experiment in their professional practice. In that process, participants explore how insights about both individual and collective learning might be gained to shape future collective action and inquiry.
