Near Future Teaching – Videos

Brightly coloured blocks spelling out "Near Future Teaching"

A collection of videos featuring students and staff talking about what changes they predict, or would like to see, in teaching over the coming decades, as technology, social trends, patterns of mobility, new methods and new media continue to shift.

The Near Future Teaching project is about working together to co-design the future of digital education at Edinburgh. The project includes a series of workshops, talks, think-tanks, interviews and other activities both online and off: our aim is to draw together the views of students and staff to help design a future for our teaching based on the big ideas, values and visions of those who have a stake in it.

These videos are some of the first outputs of the project and have been openly licensed CC BY.
