Many societies are looking to transform their educational system to focus on developing skills for the future of work, e.g. a higher degree of agility and social skills. But it is a complex field: How do we train people to be more creative? This Master degree program is doing exactly that. Design School Kolding focuses on collaborative skills and works with their students to enhance their potential. They also work directly with many leading companies, including LEGO. The Design for Play MA has the potential to be truly ground-breaking in the field of education.
