Experiential Learning

Enhancing the Experiential Learning of Landscape Architecture Students through Community Engagement


The project set up a series of case studies and community engagement activities that involved students in “real world” cultural, social and environmental issues surrounding the design and implementation of urban public infrastructure projects. Students integrated research, documentation and community consultation in order to plan, facilitate and draw conclusions from a series of workshops and surveys. They then conceived and executed a research, planning, design or intervention proposal which addressed the issues and concerns raised through the research and consultation process. The students’ research and final proposals were developed collaboratively with stakeholders and shared with the academic and local community through a variety of avenues including a project website, report, exhibition and final review, and community engagement activities.
