    How is the pandemic impacting cities and urbanism as we know it?  How does this affect the way we educate the next generation of design thinkers?

    Please join the Regional and Urban Design Committee (aia.org/rudc) for our third annual conference. We have three virtual sessions from 12noon-2pm EST on Tues. Oct 21- TH Oct 23, 2020 with a range of practitioners, academics and policy makers discussing the intersection of Practice and Research.  Our first day is on practice, the second day is about pedagogy, and the third is on policy. Learn more about the full event >

    As members of CAE, you may be especially interested in our second day:

    OCTOBER 21: PEDAGOGY (2 HSW LUs)
    At the intersection of public health + urban design lie complex questions of how we educate the next generation of design thinkers and doers to impact public health in productive ways. The promise of new technologies, distance learning, and increasingly stressed social norms are radically altering pre-existing models of habitation, work, and recreation. All institutions are imperfect, how do we advance with relevance during a point where knowledge and disciplinary expertise are increasingly under public scrutiny? This panel explores and reflects on what (we) learners and educators face and advocate for moving forward.
