Advancing Planning Workshops: Sharing Existing Practices, Improving Educational Outcomes and Assessment, Publishing Results

City and regional planning has a profound impact on the world’s citizens as it helps create a more just, efficient, sustainable and beautiful world. Planning is done for communities, and community engagement is an integral part of Cornell’s planning curriculum. Yet, department faculty do not often have the opportunity to work together to improve their collective community-engaged teaching, research and writing. With the goal of refining and strengthening five existing workshop courses, core faculty members are creating opportunities to discuss their engaged teaching experiences, update the department’s rubric for workshop assessment and develop the skills they need to publish based on their engaged research. They are also tackling issues related to the long-term sustainability of these efforts at the department level and beyond.
