FutureLearn has been designed to support a pedagogy of social learning. This booklet sets out to explain why we chose this approach, and what it means for the way we create our courses and how people learn on the FutureLearn platform.

Download the FutureLearn pedagogy white paper booklet to discover what is pedagogy, the science of learning, and our FutureLearn pedagogy, and take a look at what learning looks like at massive scale, and exactly, how it works, and finally hear our thoughts about the future of learning.
