Future Learning


Future Learning Research in Action

  • Introducing College of the Curious

    College of the Curious was born from our Future of Learning research.


    Applying multidisciplinary expertise and tools for creative thinking that can be missed in traditional education, the innovative experiential challenge (forming part of the acclaimed Melbourne Design Week program) will push participants —aka ‘students’— to think outside the box. Testing their mental elasticity as they navigate a weird and wonderful obstacle course, “Graduates” will successfully take part in:


    • A mix and match test that explores nonlinear education pathways
    • ‘Future Artefact’ building with a hidden twist
    • An exercise in story-telling, exploring the multiplicity of our realities
    • A weird and wonderful race that draws on nostalgia
    • An interactive installation exploring the power of perception
    • A sense-driven surprise

  • Introducing the report

    Our report, The Future Learning Handbook: Preparing students for the Changing World of Work, provides an analysis of current industry trends based on exclusively gathered research and statistics.


    The findings help shape our complex knowledge of the Australian education landscape, its challenges and what opportunities lie ahead.

Our creative learning experience

How a design approach to education can help

  • Foster collaboration

    Often, a society’s most pressing challenges are its most complex and ambiguous. Solutions that properly address these challenges need to come through effective collaboration within education and the workplace. Collaborative workshops facilitated by Local Peoples provide students with the tools they need to create an inclusive environment, align on decisions, ideate quickly and develop clear next steps.

  • Teach creative problem-solving

    Creative problem-solving is a skill that can be applied across any discipline or industry. Design thinking workshops help students to reframe challenges, focus on the end user, generate new ideas and assess the feasibility of their solutions.

  • Find new career pathways

    As the nature of work changes rapidly, so do careers. How might we prepare young people for jobs that don’t yet exist, or for a market in which some jobs will cease to exist? How might we support students to become adaptable in the face of uncertainty? Future career workshops take students through activities that explore emerging trends, new ways of approaching the workforce, unique career opportunities and pathways from education to industry.

  • Improve student experience

    Student experience has a significant impact on student retention and engagement as well as overall health and wellbeing on campus. As we move towards an increasingly digitised learning process, we need to create opportunities for social interaction, student engagement and additional support services. Applying human-centred design to student experience helps us understand the wants and needs of domestic and international students and develop solutions that support existing services.
