Emerging technologies are redefining higher education institutions across the world. Meanwhile, the role of the designer is becoming increasingly complex and extensive as both the socio-economic context and tools of design practice change. Students, key stakeholders in higher education, are learning to be designers in an uncertain future. This paper discuss-es the preferred learning futures of design students at the University of Technology, Sydney. These futures have been articulated through rapidly formulated collaborative scenarios that tell the story of possible university campuses, learning technologies, and educators. The via-bility of particular learning futures has been explored through follow up reflections with students. By presenting an experimental method of collaborative scenario design, and some of the preliminary results it generated, this paper claims that student voices are of great value in exploring alternative futures for Higher Education.
