Samenvatting

Futures Literacy (FL), developed by UNESCO (2014), is a capability that provides insight into how we approach unforeseeable challenges by using the future to innovate the present (Miller, 2015). When we only use the past to predict the future, detecting novelty is difficult. By knowing how we are using the future, we can integrate complexity and novelty in our choices and therefore make better decisions. Hanze University has adapted FL to higher education by developing intensive Futures Literacy Knowledge Laboratories (FLKLs) for Professional Masters. This paper focuses on the hypothesis that participants become more Futures Literate after participating in a Lab. Operationalizing underlying skills and measuring improvement during FLKLs is an important step towards an evidence-based approach. Therefore, this paper will focus on the development of a method of measurement that is aimed at measuring the effects of the FLKLs.
