The Creative Futures Annual Design Workshop is a teacher education program delivered in partnership between Melbourne Museum and DATTA Vic and funded by Creative Futures.
Each year, teachers come together for a unique professional learning experience on using museum collections and design thinking practices to enrich schools-based design education.
They also contribute to the development of new Design & Technologies classroom resources based on museum collections.
In 2022, our participating teachers helped to produce a new speculative design resource called Melbourne's Future Story. This is a digital portfolio that helps students explore the history of Melbourne’s story and then generate new and innovative ideas for how it can sustainably evolve in the future in the areas of transport, energy and community.
This resource is available as a PDF but also as an editable Google Slide doc, which means teachers can adapt it to suit their own context.
