This past year, I taught a traditional social welfare policy class at my post as a social work professor at Portland State University. I incorporated a futures lens into the class and into the primary assignments. After receiving a number of requests to share what I’d been up to – I put together this overview! The experiment was a great success and I’ll continue this approach in my ongoing teaching of this class. Your feedback and experiences in this area are most welcome!
