World Building: Prototyping Future of Education

Mar 10, 2022

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

When we look into the future, our visions are often shaped by popular media. In this session, world building pioneer Alex McDowell, Creative Director of Experimental Design and designer of iconic movies such as Minority Report, Fight Club, Man of Steel, and Alan Gershenfeld, Co-Founder of E-Line Media (Never Alone, Beyond Blue), will explore how the practice of world building can create research grounded, evocative visions of aspirational but achievable preferred futures for education.
