Course Description

We live in a time of disruptive change. How to activate our capacity to lean into the emerging future may well be the most important leadership challenge of our time. How do you cultivate curiosity, compassion and courage in the face of prejudice, anger and fear?

This course is an introduction to a method called Theory U, developed at MIT, for leading such change in business, government, and civil society contexts worldwide.

The only prerequisite for this course is u.lab 15.671.0x, an introductory overview--which you can complete in just 90 minutes. Building on the intention you set in u.lab 15.671.0x, 15.671.1x will help you to apply the Theory U method to an issue that matters to you, with fellow change makers locally and around the world. Join us as we co-pioneer new approaches to today’s most important social and environmental challenges using a method of awareness based systems change.

I'm starting to orient myself in this platform and on its effective use. I think the course and the topic are highly innovative and truly focused on the future with a positive outlook. The instructor sets out the arguments in a clear and understandable way even to those not native English speakers.

This course has really make me experience belonging and commitment to change the status quo where I perform. I have had experience with other courses but this one really makes you desired to get engaged and apply experiences as soon as possible. I am in the "presencing" stage and enjoying it!

En una sociedad mercantilista es conocimiento no ha sido la excepción, las grandes universidades se lucran de el. Pero ofrecer una temática tan valiosa para el logro del bienestar de la humanidad no tiene precio y es por eso que miles de personas estamos maravillados y agradecidos con esta propuesta. Tengo 48 años y vivo en Colombia y no sé que es vivir en un pais en paz, con gran dificultad gane una beca de estudio la cual me ha permitido ver el mundo de otra forma, desde la perspectiva de un liderazgo ético y de servicio pero en la practica esto es una tarea difícil en una sociedad tan polarizada. Gracias por dejarme ser parte de esta gran empresa.

This course is a must for every one interested in social responsibility as a mean to change the world we live in, and the world our children and grandsons will inherit. By changing the way you see yourself, the society and the world, and by deeply connecting with who you really are and with your community, we will be able to help to create a new world in which love, passion, compassion, unity, abundance and altruism to name a few would be the standard, not the exception.

ULab is a MOOC, but unlike other MOOCs, I've participated in, which tend to be very top down in terms of educational delivery and focus. For last year’s session, there were about 10,000 participants, and often as many as 6,000 participants in the live sessions, which were real time tweeted. Conversations and meditation and connection actually happened during the live events. Think about it - conversations, meditation and connection between 6,000 different people from, and in, 182 countries. Simultaneously. And yes, it was as amazing as it sounds. During the six weeks of participation, I felt like I was cocooned in a world of those who want to make a difference, those who want to see a more just world, a more verdant world and a more generative, giving world. If you have any interest in these areas and have 2 – 5 hours to spend each week for the next several weeks, I strongly recommend taking part in this potentially life-chang...

Truly opening up of the mind in the best interest of self, society and business. A great intervention that has the power to change the way the world thinks about its survival.

This is one of the best and most thought provoking courses of eDX. I participated in U Lab 1 and found following highlights: 1. A very clear presentation of ideas and concepts 2. Ideas related to social change, business transformation and disruptive innovation presented in a great way 3. You can expect some most updated techniques and tools shared on this course 4. Last but not the least the Gurus of their fields like Peter Senge, Otto, Ed etc. are all here I strongly recommend the course to any serious entrepreneur, social change maker and innovator. With best regards, Anupam Rawat "I am because WE are"

I participated in Ulab1 and participate in Ulab2. This Mooc accelerates our most important project, and provides us with tried & proved methodology to change ourselves to better leverage change in the positive direction we imagine. This is not about learning, this is about life changing. Please see if the teasers provided strike a deep chord within, then let your hand follow your heart.

I had thought I was ahead of the wave, and discovered how much I had to learn - how to truly listen on an institutional as well as individual level. Through the video material, readings and most particularly the practice afforded by the small group "coaching circles" a new, more hopeful action oriented universe was opened. Just the statistic of the world wide extent of participation was awe inspiring - to think of the networks that could assemble that many in such a short time. I am registered to take 2.0 as I feel the amount I retained from 1.0 is too little to be truly effective.

This course is highly relevant and deeply needed to survive the fluid world we now live in. The work created in the ULAB clearly is from a conduit where fresh innovation and stable principles flow freely through. If you wish to be among the global village who are making a great change in the world, then this is your course. It's scrumptious!

Being active part of the learning cohort of the first #ULab course earlier this years, I not only enjoyed the learning on a personal and collective basis (within the coaching circles) but deepened my understanding and sensing of the forces that hold back and encourage collective change. I highly recommend this MOOC to anybody who is driven by an inner calling to make change to the better with her/his larger community, organization, business context or just to learn for oneself.

My experience with U-Lab is positive as anything done online (and maybe offline) before. Great material, great activities and great community. After taking the very first U-Lab course, I am already living and sharing some of the knowledge and mindfulness experience in my professional and personal live. I strongly recommed this course for anybody dealing with how to improve society, business, and the self.

This is more than a class, it is a community journey. And the community is global. But it's not just big picture, the class also offers tangible practical skill building in terms of listening and holding a space for difficult conversations that allow for diverse and divergent viewpoints.
