Emerging Perspectives on Urban Morphology: Researching and Learning through multiple practices

EPUM is an international research project which aims at the integration of different urban form research and teaching approaches through pedagogic innovation and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The activities of this 28 months project (2017-2020) are funded by Erasmus+ and focus on the development of an innovative, open and inclusive system of teaching and training in urban form from a multidisciplinary perspective, capable of enabling the current and future generation of planning and design professionals to address comprehensively and effectively the variety of issues and challenges faced by contemporary cities. This website provides information about the project activities to partners and to other parties interested in the work of the project.

Teaching Different Approaches in Urban Morphology-EPUM Round Table-ISUF2019

Why, what and how to teach urban morphology? How to make an effective use of the different morphological approaches?  This round table discussion will take place during the forthcoming ISUF2019 conference in Nicosia, and will address the educational aspect of urban morphology. It aims at raising and debating issues around how urban morphology is approached and taught across different institutions. Building onto this debate, the participants will share and discuss their experiences of teaching urban morphology and what they find the most effective educational methods in this field, in particular with a view of providing students with a broad understanding of a variety of approaches as well as the skills to apply different methodologies both within research and practice. The organisation of morphological knowledge for educational purposes will be tackled: how to present a wealth of concepts, a broad range of theoretical ideas and a significant number of practical skills to students at different stages of the educational process.
During the discussion, participants will also reflect on the possibilities of a blended learning approach to teaching urban morphology.
