ABOUT THE CURRICULUM
The XPotential University’s self paced or instructor led EXPONENTIAL FUTURES CURRICULUM (EFC) is a pioneering future focused curriculum that is now being used by different governments and institutions around the world to help them future proof their citizens and students and inspire them to become purpose driven individuals who are motivated and empowered to change the world for the benefit of everyone.
Our curriculum does this by providing students with the exponential mindset, tools, and community to help them envision the future and deep future and succeed in a rapidly changing futuristic world where the rules that governed the past increasingly no longer apply, and where the rate of disruption, for better and worse, is accelerating exponentially.
The Exponential Futures Curriculum is split into two modules each containing a number of blocks which cover specific topics and include specific activities.
Module 01 covers Futures Theory and provides students with all the foundational skills they need to envision and understand the Exponential Future.
In Module 02 students are then given the opportunity put these learnings into practise, and are provided with the conceptual frameworks and tools to help them develop, build, and launch their own exponential products and enterprises.
More specifically the Exponential Futures Curriculum provides students with:
- A better understanding of the world they are going to inherit and the new rules that govern it
- A clear understanding of how Exponential Technology will change the world and its impact
- A clear vision of the future and deep future
- A platform to debate current and future ethical and moral issues
- Access to innovation competitions and mentor programs
- Access to a vibrant community of like minded organisations and partners
- An Exponential Mindset, rather than a linear one
- An exponential view of the world through the lens of Future Thinking
- An opportunity to build futuristic products and services that have real impact
- Entrepreneurial skills that help them turn ideas into reality and have a global impact
- Exposure to hundreds of exponential technologies, their use cases and implications
- Future insights to help them make better informed career and life decisions
