The Educational Aspect of Urban Morphology_EPUM Round Table 1_CyNUM conference
The first Round Table discussion of EPUM addresses the educational aspect of urban morphology. It aims at raising and debating issues around how urban morphology is approached and taught across different institutions, starting from how the basic definition of urban morphology varies across different organisations and attempting to reach a consensus on the nature and scope of this field of study. 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. Finally, the organization 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.
