The Centre is involved in the development of a new postgraduate programme, to be part of the Edinburgh Futures Institute (EFI). The programme is made up of a number of interlinked pathways, including one on Education Futures, which is being developed by Dr Jen Ross. The programme will be interdisciplinary, challenge-led, and have core data and creative skills courses as well as a range of core and option courses for each pathway.
If your institution would like to further explore the methods and outputs from Near Future Teaching, please get in touch.
We are able to offer keynote talks and run workshops on the values-based, co-design methods we used, and we can help introduce such approaches in other institutions wishing to adopt similar ways for building education strategy and vision.
Our workshops provide an opportunity for your staff and students to begin to design a preferable future for teaching using accessible and interactive methods.

The Data Education in Schools project held three 'Data Town' events in May / June which brought together young people from across the City Region (Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian, West Lothian, Fife and Borders), to consider what a 'Data Town' of the future might look like.
