GPEIG Roundtable: "Global" Dimensions of Planning: Moving Beyond Program Accreditation Requirements

One of Planning Accreditation Board's (PAB) general planning knowledge requirements relates to global dimensions of planning: 'interactions, flows of people and materials, cultures, and differing approaches to planning across world regions.' The proposal panel will facilitate dialogue on accreditation standards to motivate educators to explore innovative approaches to course content and delivery on global dimensions of planning. The questions that will be addressed in the panel include: (1) What are the challenges faced by planning departments in meeting PAB global requirements? (2) Is meeting the PAB global requirements enough education for students (domestic and international) seeking to work professionally or conduct research in international settings? Why or why not? (3) What are some innovative models planning programs use to teach global dimensions of planning?
