HASTAC FutureEd Initiative Participant Portal
The FutureEd Initiative is an open, worldwide, and user-inspired initiative that assesses the educational legacies we’ve inherited in order to design new ways of learning for present needs and future aspirations. It is led by those with the most at stake in transforming higher education: students and faculty.
More than 70 courses, workshops, events, and reading groups, in different locations and online, all open to the public, were created by members of the HASTAC alliance on “The History and Future of Higher Education”. To see the list of participating activities and institutions, and to read their posts, please visit the FutureEd Collection.

Register for the MOOC (Massive Open Online Course)
Free, open, and with no prerequisites, a MOOC on “The History and Future of (Mostly) Higher Education” begins on January 27, 2014. Sponsored by Duke University through the Coursera platform, this open non-credit course will extend our reach to an anticipated audience of tens of thousands of participants worldwide. The MOOC is also integrated with face-to-face courses at Duke University, Stanford University, and the University of California, Santa Barbara (see the infoGraphic).
