Dialogue, Deliberation and Engagement - ARCH9090

Year - 2020

This elective unit will help build the skills and knowledge to design and implement forms of dialogue, deliberation and engagement that are most effective. In the context of major changes to the way planning and design is carried out in NSW and more widely, this is an opportunity to develop independent study skills and perspectives on engagement and collaboration in planning and urban design. The unit allows for a visiting academic to teach a subject related to their speciality. Students will participate in lectures, tutorials, or other activities as needed to pursue the elective topic. Students will develop an understanding of a special topic through reports, projects, and/or tutorial exercises. The workshop format is a stimulating combination of practical experience and scholarly learning, involving people working in the field of community engagement and public participation - planners, urban designers, consultants, change agents, community development practitioners, policy makers, government staff - who have an interest or a requirement to engage citizens or communities.

Intensive workshop over 3 days (8:30am to 6:00pm); 28.5 direct contact hours; 6 hours follow-up tutorials

Assessment 1 Learning Journal (30%); Assessment 2 Comparative Critical Analysis of Two Journal Articles (30%); Assessment 3 Deliberative Design (40%)
