The Academy’s Disciplinary Contribution: Research, Cases, and Connections

ASLA 2017 Annual Meeting, Los Angeles, CA

The relationship between the academy and practice is reciprocal, the training of designers and production of knowledge occurs within both realms. This session specifically explores the role of academics and the ways in which they use pedagogy and research to identify nascent topics to evolve how the discipline operates. With panelists Kristina Hill, FASLA, Elizabeth Meyer, FASLA, and Thaisa Way, ASLA, attendees will learn how the production of knowledge is targeted at disciplinary specific issues, explore a series of recent case studies presented by academics from leading research universities, and discover direct links between the development of pedagogy to form the core of disciplinary knowledge.
