We are educating for a resilient future through design.

We are a multi-disciplinary, multi-institutional, global collective striving to help those entrusted with the teaching of community resilience - we offer open access resources that are pedagogically rigorous and based upon current thoughts in Higher Education. We aim to help you deliver community resilience contextualised in your practice, your way, for your learners. We aim to build a 'community of practice for community resilience'

Curriculum is the content, lessons, and structured resources that enable learners to develop skills and mastery of a subject area. Here we focus on the design of inspiring, contextually rich, transdisciplinary based scenarios that bring the outside world into the classroom.

It is essential to consider the Pedagogy, in other words how learning happens. Carefully crafting the learning experience through design should place the learner at the centre of the educational offering for community resilience. Adopting a design education approach, we value the role of experiential learning, collaboration, critically-engaged practice and reflection.
