Introduction to Futurism

November 3, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

John Krochmalny

1:00 – 2:30 pm, Wednesday

November 3 – 17 (3 weeks)

Hybrid class: in person and online

In his 1982 best-selling book “Megatrends”, author John Naisbitt predicted the coming of the “Age of Information” 15 years before the public acceptance of the personal computer and the infrastructure of the Internet. The United States Department of State, NASA, and the RAND Corporation are just a few of the organizations that have been using techniques that analyze trends, make forecasts, and implement strategies to attain a future they want.

This class will introduce the concepts of “Futurism”, where it began, how it works, and identify key components of this fascinating field of investigation and action. Perhaps you may want to be your own Futurist!

John Krochmalny has considerable higher-education teaching experience as an instructional designer and technical trainer.
