WHAT YOU WILL GAIN FROM THE
We designed the UnSchool UnMasters in Creative Change-Making because we believe that every organization should have a professional Change-Maker role as part of its core leadership team. Leaders with a creative systems thinking mindset to help transform old linear ways of thinking that prevent transformative change, with a sustainability focus to ensure longevity and ethics in programs and processes and reflexive, critical brain power to develop new solutions to tired problems that no longer work.
This program is designed for aspirational leaders who want to establish themselves as a creative force for positive impact.
The UnMasters program is for emerging leaders, intrapreneurs and career changers who are deeply passionate about making a real and significant change either within an organization or in the world at large.
This is a 10 month part-time online learning program that delivers monthly content around the Disruptive Design Method, agency development, facilitation, leadership, community engagement, systems thinking, reflexivity and positive impact.
These 10 months are broken down into monthly knowledge acquisition sections around the core DDM knowledge bank and leadership development. There are then 2 months of dedicated mentorship to support your learning advancement and get you ready for your final certification challenge.
Certification as an UnMasters give you the ability to demonstrate your commitment to creative change and your role as a leader in this space.
You will have advanced communication, reflexivity, systems thinking and facilitation skills, supporting you in shifting to a career in positive impact or further developing your role in this space.
“The fellowship is not only a program to put methods and ideas into your brain, but also a unique program that makes you believe in the power of disruptive design and sustainability by your heart, and especially in yourself to make the change.”
“To find a way to express ideas about sustainability, systems thinking, and creative disruption in concrete, tangible and accessible ways. Through the weeklong fellowship, I developed this capacity – both through the integrity of the content, and through learning by doing, to find my own voice.”
“The Disruptive Design workshop far exceeded my expectations. The content has given me a practical way to delve into complex problems, exploring thinking far beyond my normal lines of inquiry, and to surface new areas for intervention and innovative ways of designing those interventions. Everyone who is tackling systems should learn this.”
The UnMasters Certification Track is 8 months of content delivered online every 30 days. It is self-directed learning with video, text, activities and multiple learning challenges for real world practice. After the completion of 8 months online, there is a 2 month mentorship with an UnSchool mentor, with a weekly 1hr sessions. You will have 6 months to apply for certification after the program ends, with a final challenge and certification meeting with the UnSchool panel.
The UnMasters track is perfect for professionals already making change, or intrapreneurs. It’s designed for anyone making a transition in their career, or working internally within organisations to facilitate change. It’s kind of like a fast track to a Masters degree, and is designed to help facilitate change, design interventions, and work with your community. The Educator track is designed to support leaders in facilitation, using the unique UnSchool pedagogy and approach. This track is all about experience design, gamification, human interaction, and applying concepts in an educational setting. There is the added opportunity to be commissioned by the UnSchool once you have gained certification, to lead or co-lead UnSchool workshops and programs.
This is self directed learning, but you can always sign up for additional office hours to get one on one time with our UnSchool educators to support your learning process, and the required mentorship program is a great way to get extra support.
