Foresight Development (TCH110) - Sharable Public Curriculum
This is a sharable reusable copy of the course website and curricula for Foresight Development (TCH110).
TCH110 is a 15 week required undergraduate course in global and organizational foresight education and personal foresight development. Developed by John M. Smart in 2008 for the University of Advancing Technology (UAT, http://www.uat.edu). UAT is a four-year university in Phoenix, AZ whose mission is educating innovators of the future. TCH110 continues to be taught to all undergrads at UAT.
Personal Foresight Wiki
(you will fill out this career, relationship, and life foresight wiki over the last ten weeks - it serves as your Final Exam)
(for new teacher training for this course)
Students: This wiki is on the Open Social Web. Be courteous, and don't post anything you wouldn't want accessible to everyone. Joining this wiki is not a requirement of TCH110 (you can turn in your resources by email if you wish) but it is recommended for those who wish to participate in open online community. Regardless, everyone has to at least come to the website to view what we are creating together. Welcome to the wiki!
Be Bold! This is your space to add resources, resource commentary, post questions, and have discussions, so don't be shy. You can visit this wiki anytime, and you'll be directed here four times over the course for "wikiraid" community resource-building assignments.
Wikirules: Please include your name (full name or first name plus last initial) at the end of any wiki contribution you make, with a dash in front (Example: - Joe Student). All wiki posts may be edited for grammar, style, clarity and brevity by any of us. The entire wiki is heavily edited at the end of each semester. Only the best contributions survive the end-of-semester cut. Make sure several have your name on them so you leave a legacy to the course!
Thanks for sharing your best futures resource discoveries and ideas here, and have fun!
