Skrócony opis:

The workshop combines various learning and training forms: lectures, seminars and project consultation classes. Each course part starts with an introductory lecture followed by small-group work and project presentations. Main small-group tasks are:

- to discuss, analyze and present a case planning problem that depicts a general planning challenge introduced by the lecturer,

- to discuss, develop and present a common planning solution to the case problem.

Skills to be trained during the workshop are:

- problem posing,

- problem solving,

- discussing & critical thinking,

- decision making,

- individual work,

- collective work,

- design thinking,

- project elaboration & graphic presentation,

- oral & visual presentation.

Pełny opis:

The aims of the workshop are to introduce students to:

- the role and significance of spatial planning in achieving sustainable development goals,

- aims and principles of spatial planning based on the sustainable development paradigm,

- main current challenges of planning for sustainable urban and regional development,

- selected tools used in the regional and local planning in various countries,

- good practice of urban and regional planning implementation.

The course consists of 2 parts that reflect 2 planning challenges to be discussed. Each course part begins with an introductory lecture on exemplary problems and solutions of the general planning challenge. The students' work on both problems and their solutions is structured as follows:

1. Problem posing / solving

2. Team homework on selected problem / solutions

3. Consultation of draft presentations

4. Presentation of the selected problem / solutions

The introductory lecture depicts a general subject matter of each course part. Aims of the small-group work are first to discuss, analyze and present a case planning problem that depicts the planning challenge introduced by the lecturer and then to discuss, develop and present common planning solutions to the case problem. The outcome of small-group work, that is posed case problems as well as developed solutions, will be then presented by each small group. The presentations will combine graphic, oral and visual methods.

Skills to be trained during the workshop are:

- problem posing,

- problem solving,

- discussing & critical thinking,

- decision making,

- individual work,

- collective work,

- design thinking,

- project elaboration & graphic presentation,

- oral & visual presentation.

Each course part will require both individual and collective work. The problem posing process will start with an inspiring lecturer’s introduction followed by individual or team work work at home. All case planning problems and problem solutions proposed by students will then be gathered and discussed in small groups. The collective work in small groups requires critical thinking, collaborative decision making and design thinking abilities. The case problem posed and the draft problem solutions elaborated during the class will then be respectively analyzed or developed by small groups at home. Elaborated outcomes in form of a case problem analysis or a planning solution project will then be presented in graphic, visual and oral form to the whole course group audience.

Key up-to-date planning challenges will be discussed (e.g. growth & shrinkage (incl. urban sprawl, downfall of town centres etc.), car traffic, provision of public services (incl. urban infrastructure, public and open spaces etc.). The problem solving parts will focus on best practice examples of local and regional planning tools and policies that have been conceived to respond to these planning challenges (e.g. urban renaissance, central places system, compact city, transit-oriented development, green belts, land value capture etc.).

The content of the class is linked to some elements of following courses:

- Urban sustainability

- Local public service for sustainable development

- Strategic management of sustainable development

- Challenges to social dimension of sustainability

- Sustainable development economics

- Sustainable development strategies – global, regional, local and institutional

- Design for social innovation
