Mem­bers of the Chair of Urban Design and Urban Deve­lo­p­ment teach urban design as an ’act of shaping’ as well as a pro­cess of nego­tia­tion bet­ween the diverse needs and visi­ons of dif­fe­rent sta­ke­hol­ders. Bes­i­des con­cep­tual design skills and buil­ding design theory, stu­dents also learn com­mu­ni­ca­tive and ana­ly­ti­cal com­pe­tency as well as tools for repre­sen­ta­tion in plan­ning (i.a. CAD, GIS). The tea­ching is lin­ked to rese­arch pro­jects of the depart­ment, as well as expe­ri­en­ces from the plan­ning-pra­xis are incorporated.
The depart­ment offers cour­ses in the Bache­lor and Mas­ter degree pro­gram City and Regio­nal Plan­ning and in the Mas­ter degree pro­gram Urban Design. Tea­ching for­mats encom­pass lec­tures, life-pro­jects and design stu­dios and semi­nars and include the super­vi­sion of BA and MA the­sis work. A spe­cial peer-to-peer for­mat is the “Mikro-Aka­de­mie”, which offers addi­tio­nal course work in design and rese­arch methods.
