Class Description:
This course covers the design, implementation, and evaluation of participatory planning processes. The primary purpose of this course is to help students develop the skills they will need as future practitioners. We will, therefore, explore the theories and characterize the skills of contemporary planning practice, which students will learn to apply to a range of planning contexts (e.g., environmental planning, housing and community development, land use and urban design, transportation planning, et cetera). We will review broad-scale process design issues as well as the fine-scale minutiae of individual planning meetings and workshops. Finally, we will investigate the issues and challenges of participatory planning, community engagement, and democratic deliberation.
Learning Objectives:

Students can expect to complete the following learning outcomes in this course:


  • Articulate (in writing) a personal planning philosophy

  • Evaluate the design of a contemporary planning process

  • Design a planning process tailored to specific planning problem and context

  • Evaluate the design of a contemporary community engagement strategy

  • Design a community engagement strategy

  • Draft an agenda for a planning meeting

  • Dissect and diagnose the social interactions at the heart of planning

  • Facilitate typical planning activities

Class Format:
This course is about doing planning not talking about it. Lectures and readings will be geared toward application. Individual learning activities have been designed to maximize student participation and to reflect authentic planning work. The course will start broad (whole process) and drill down into the fabric of planning meetings.
