Planning for the future is critical to the overall progress of the community. This dynamic online learning community will focus on the intersection of policy and its impacts on city planning decisions. Throughout the applied portion of class, equity will remain a common theme, including the outcomes of incorporating equity structures as well as consequences for not utilizing a well thought out strategy. Through an analysis of planning principals combined with economic and community development foundations, students will participate in discussion of new approaches and tools used to analyze public policy, build scenarios and provide recommendations based on assets in the community. An interactive live online component will provide the class forum and then an independent project building on the application of applied techniques will expand an understanding of data analytics, technology tools available for city planning and strategies to intersect planning and public policy.
Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
