- Foresight education in Australia: time for a hybrid model?
- Hayward, Peter; Voros, Joseph; Morrow, Rowena
- This paper revisits the original design parameters of what was a 'new' Masters in Strategic Foresight that commenced at Swinburne University in 2001. It explores which of the original purposes and assumptions have stood the test of time over the course of a decade and analyses how the course has evolved, partly through design and partly through necessity. The paper reflects on the primary contribution of the Masters teaching experience and proposes that encouraging the students to develop philosophical 'literacy' operated to develop both the practicality of their use of methods and the capacity of their leadership and critical thinking. A secondary contribution reiterates the importance of 'place' and the necessity of 'sufficient time' for adult development to occur.
