The Education Programme of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture aims to promote broader and deeper awareness among young people of the philosophy and values that underpin the efforts of the Trust. To this end, the programme is developing teaching materials and processes through which the wealth of knowledge and learning accumulated by the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme will be shared with university and high school students, as well as a broader interested public.
For the pilot phase of the Education Programme now under way, AKTC has partnered with experts to prepare a series of pedagogical outputs. These include teaching packages, lectures on Power Point, MOOCs and curriculum units, some of which are already posted on Archnet. Others will be added as soon as they become available. The Programme is also partnering with educational institutions to generate new elective courses, field schools and workshops, the highlights and/or outputs of which will also be posted as appropriate.
