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.
