Description

The purpose of this innovative seminar is to provide the students with scientific methodological competences for a structured international comparison of spatial planning processes. Best practice projects of comparative planning as well as research designs (among others EU projects) will be presented and discussed. The students will learn to determine different typologies of planning as well as to pick appropriate indicators based on selected examples of spatial planning and development. Acting in different planning cultures and specific situations shall be practiced. Furthermore, the opportunities and limits of knowledge-transfer in spatial planning will be presented. This course will be closely linked to current projects of the department.

During the winter term the project ‘PlanShrinking – Shrinking Cities in the German and US Context’ will be analysed in depth.

Materials

Ξ A web page on OLAT will be offered for the lecture.
Ξ Additional teaching material will be provided during the lectures.

Besides that, online participation in the interdisciplinary Kaiserslautern Open Online Course (KLOOC) on "Sustainability" (duration 9 weeks)

Contact
Prof. Dr. Karina Pallagst

Description

The event Planning Cultures and Sustainability will include planing and sustainability as part of the Kaiserslautern Open Online Course (KLOOC) on sustainability. The KLOOC Sustainability is an innovative and interdisciplinary teaching project, which is carried out by several departments of TUKL.

The topic "Sustainable Development" is being researched, dealt with and advanced at TUK with different disciplines' lenses. The open online course focuses on sustainability and is offered at the TUK to share the experiences and increase their visibility. The course lasts 9 weeks and can be completed online. For those taking part in the Master's degree programs in the Faculty of Spatial and Environmental Planning, KLOOC replaces the "Culture and Sustainability" lecture as it is integrated into the KLOOC.

Every week, the topic of sustainability from a different perspective is illuminated by the TUK's lecturers and prepared in an innovative online format. Participants can interact on sustainability in their personal (learning) environment in an interactive and interdisciplinary manner.
 
The course is part of the module "International Urban Development and Planning Cultures".

Materials

• A website on OLAT is set up for the course.
• Additional teaching material is available through the KLOOC platform

Requirements

Participation in all KLOOC subject blocks is required for the course assessment. The intensive preparation for the topics is an important part of the course to ensure the participation of all students at KLOOC. This includes reading the materials, taking part in smaller exercises and communicating via the KLOOC internet platform.

Evaluation

Proof of achievement is acquired by an exam (module exam together with the course International Urban Development in the summer term).

The exercises are not evaluated.

Language

Mostly German; Selected teaching materials in English.

Lecture with exercises held in English as part of the module International Planning Systems.

Offered in the winter term.

Description

This lecture deals with current planning topics in an international context. These might for example be shrinking cities, inner city development, collaborative planning, and suburbanization in an international comparison.
Students will get the opportunity to interact with cooperation partners from foreign countries (researchers or practicioners) by means of e.g. video conferences and/or field trips (not compulsory). Prof. Pallagst will facilitate the explorative learning of the students. Selected project examples will be used as an input to enable the own scientific work of the students. The students will get insights into the planning practices of spatial planning related expert cultures through video conferences with planning stakeholders in the USA. The students shall not be provided with preconceived solutions but develop their own analytical reflections within the learning process.
