StudentDwellTO: Exploring Curricular Collaborations in Planning Education
Dr. Luisa Sotomayor and Dr. Laura Taylor’s presentation at the Urban Affairs Association’s 2018 conference discussed approaches to curricular collaborations in planning education through an interdisciplinary workshop model. The presentation featured a case study on student housing that examined 4 typical student housing models at York University. This timely presentation highlighted the unique instructional characteristics of a workshop model. Collaborative workshops, while requiring greater logistics and preparation, require an engagement with pedagogical dilemmas around the role of workshops in teaching practices.
