Make it FutureFit: Four ways to design better adult learning experiences

Technological advancement, climate change, increased migration and significant cultural shifts will render the skills we are learning today redundant in a matter of years. This means that preparing adults for the future is perhaps more complex than ever.

Make it FutureFit is designed to help you deliver better adult learning experiences to prepare adults for the immediate needs of a rapidly changing world of work.

In this guide we hope to provide some guidance in two respects:

  • To outline key strategies or ingredients that are known to be effective in the design of adult learning experiences.
  • To provide specific examples of these strategies in practice from initiatives that are applying them today.

The examples selected for this guide raise important questions concerning learning design, whether for new or existing programmes. Make it FutureFit includes guidance to help you navigate these questions.

To learn more about our efforts, visit our project page FutureFit - a major training intervention focused on upskilling and reskilling workers and doing innovative, robust research about what works.
