Welcome to U.Lab Scotland’s blog!

Over the next weeks and months, we hope to bring you news about the community that is coming together around U.Lab in Scotland.  It will include guest posts about the different hubs being formed, support on getting involved yourself and whatever you feel would be helpful. Feel free to leave comments in the box below any posts!

If you are completed new to this, here are a few links to have a look at and see if it might be for you:

U.Lab is a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) offered for free by the Massachusetts Institute for Technology (MIT) which offers to “put you into the driver’s seat of innovation and change” by helping you to make transformational change by changing yourself.  It will last for 8 weeks starting from 10 Sept 2015.  More details and sign up instructions are here: https://www.edx.org/course/u-lab-transforming-business-society-self-mitx-15-671x

Otto Scharmer (Author of Theory U and one of the U.Lab team) is working with Scotland to help us use U.Lab as a way of encouraging more people to make the changes we want to see in our country, both as individuals and as members of our organisations.  We will have Scottish-specific content (that we are referring to as U.Lab Scotland, ulabscot or the SMOOC).  If you’re interested in this, there is an additional step you need to take as part of the registration process.  This short video might help: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3wCiDD1azEE

We also have a U Lab Scotland Facebook page you can join if that’s your kind of thing or use and follow #ulabscot and #ulab on Twitter.

Watch this space for some amazing things the community is already doing!

  1. Hello Ulab Scotland! We are very excited to be taking part- The Scottish Recovery Consortium is planning to host two hubs based in Glasgow city centre. They are thematic hubs: one is looking at grassroots recovery communities in scotland and the other is recovery from addiction in Scotland
