Student Scenarios on Philippine Higher Education Futures Workshop

I and Risa Jopson facilitated two foresight workshops in Laoag City and Metro Manila recently to explore student perspectives/scenarios on the future of Philippine Higher Education Institutions.

Around 30 students/student leaders more or less participated in the focus group discussion cum futures workshop.

The students deconstructed and imagined plausible alternative higher education futures using the futures triangle and scenario method. On the sideline, it was fun and immersive facilitating a social foresight lecture and workshop to 300 students.

We hope to publish and present our output to a local and/or Global Higher Education conference/forum and journal in 2014. Hope to expose more students and youth to futures and systems thinking, alternative futures, and social foresight next year .
