À propos du cours

Do you want to learn how to simulate the future more creatively and more effectively? This course is for you. Humans are the only living creatures with the ability to think about and make plans for the long- term future. Even so, our brains don’t always make it easy. Over the past decade, scientists have discovered a number of neurological “road blocks” to effective futures thinking. These glitches in the brain make it harder for us to accurately predict how we’ll feel and what we’re likely to do, when a particular future arrives. They lead us to make faulty assumptions about which futures are likely or unlikely to happen. And they convince us we have less power to shape and influence the future than we actually do – leaving us stuck in the present. In this course, you’ll learn how to overcome these obstacles so you can think about the future more strategically and creatively. You’ll practice simulation techniques for “unsticking” the mind when it comes to seeing what’s possible in the future and accepting how things could be different. You’ll also learn how to lead others through “first-person future” simulations, which have been shown in scientific studies to improve strategy and increase motivation and hope for the future. Along the way, leading futurists from the Institute from the Future will share some of their most challenging forecasts to help you stretch your imagination and improve your simulation skills. This course will ensure that you can put all of your new forecasting skills to the best possible use, by helping you nudge your brain toward more effective ways of simulating and preparing for the future.

Doing the entire specialization I appreciate the tools of getting yourself or other participants to remove themselves from the current day setting. Some tools are really deployable on the spot, whereas others require elaborate preparation. I am more familiar and convinced of the latter before I took this course, but now I also see more clearly the potential of the 'on-the-spot' ones. So, rely less on design as a standard departure point.

Interesting topics, although you definitely need to practice them a lot to fully internalize the concepts and familiarize yourself with all the practical tools etc,

This course offered good information about simulation. However it was not a challenge to achieve the goal of the course.
