Description

The International Handbook of Planning Education is the first comprehensive handbook with a unique focus on planning education. Comparing approaches to the delivery of planning education by three major planning education accreditation bodies in the United States, Australia, and the United Kingdom, this handbook will help to meet the strong interest and need for understanding how planning education is developed and delivered in different international contexts. The handbook is divided into five major sections, including coverage of general planning knowledge, planning skills, traditional and emerging planning specializations, and pedagogy. An international cohort of contributors cover each subject's role in educating planners, its theory and methods, key literature contributions, and course design. Higher education's response to globalization has included growth in planning educational exchanges across international boundaries; the International Handbook of Planning Education is an essential resource for planners and planning educators, informing the dialogue on the mobility of planners educated under different national schema.show more
