Teaching & Learning

 

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to advise on the mode of teaching for September 2021, however we will keep you updated and provide more information as soon as we can. We continue to follow government guidance and your teaching and learning will reflect the restrictions in place at the time of delivery. We currently anticipate that you may experience a blended approach – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and online teaching and learning. You can keep up to date with teaching and learning at Leeds Beckett via our Covid-19 website. Updated course specifications will be available in August 2021. In the meantime, our existing course specifications are available.

What you'll learn

This module establishes the need for systematic understanding and creative analysis of urban environments as a prerequisite for design. It will challenge you to apply theories and select analytical techniques to imaginatively communicate site-based group work and urban design analysis on a given site.
Develop a critical awareness of interdisciplinary skills and practises necessary to advance emergent urban design practices via a design project.
Building on the project themes instigated in Design Studio One, you will develop a research informed urban design project via experimental and contextual analysis and design strategies.
This module will introduce a range of practice-based and theoretical research methods. These methods will inform your specialist practice in urban design and will provide the requisite skills to enable you to write your reflective practice submission.
This module considers the unprecedented scale and complexity of conditions that are shaping the urban environment globally, creating the need for a critical evaluation of the methods, tools, and design culture that surrounds the practice of urban design.
Carry out an in-depth study of an urban design topic of your choice which develops your personal interests and reflects your career aspirations.
