The Aga Khan Trust for Culture Education Programme 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 that will enable the wealth of knowledge and learnings accumulated by two of the Trust’s key programmes – the Aga Khan Award for Architecture and the Aga Khan Historic Cities Programme – to be shared with university and high school students, as well as a broader interested public.
For the pilot phase of the Education Programme currently under way, the AKTC has partnered with experts to prepare a series of pedagogical outputs. These include teaching packages, lectures, MOOCs and curriculum units. The Education Programme is also partnering with educational institutions to generate dedicated elective courses, field schools and workshops.
