Video Learning in Community Planning

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This article explores the use of video as an experiential learning tool in planning education. We report on the design of a video learning assignment for undergraduate community planning students and the results of a pre- and postsurvey used to gauge the student learning experience. Results show that video-making can be an effective tool to inspire students to make connections between complex urban theory and planning content and their everyday surroundings. This approach may be a useful support for future planners whose roles will involve community engagement and developing scenarios for community change.
