Future Fictions: writing our way to the future of teaching

This was a creative writing workshop on the theme of future teaching led by JL Williams and Natalie Poyser from the Institute for Academic Development (IAD). The brief: to write, in prose or poetry, our visions for the future of our university. So I did. In free verse without stopping. With mistakes and clumsy awkward phrasing. But that is the point, really. We are stumbling and creatively articulating our way forward.

As well as IAD and Education, colleagues came along from Edinburgh College of Art (eca), Talbot Rice gallery, Medical Education, Literature and Information Services. There was an introduction to some sample verse and prose, free-writing to warm us up and then writing and sharing of our work.
