Road Mapping

Participants of the innovation workshop "Teaching in 2030" discussed various perspectives for the development of teaching at the University of Freiburg in the year 2030 and worked out options for action on the basis of scenarios on the development of the international higher education landscape published by the OECD.

The work groups included students, teachers, and administrative employees, ensuring that the perspectives of all status groups were represented in the dialogue process. Each work group was given a scenario developed by the  OECD Centre for Educational Research and Innovation (CERI) as part of the University Futures Project. The intention of these scenarios was not so much to make concrete prognoses as to provide a pointed sketch of potential developments as a basis for discourse. The main focus was thus not on how realistic the scenarios are, but on the question: “What would happen if...?”


Scenario-based road mapping is a challenge for the participants. However, it also sets free enormous potential for calling into question existing thought patterns.
