the power of experience


Hi all,

Welcome to the second part of the Module City Design and Development.

This semester we will take part on a project called the Power of Experience. The project is based on the assumption that you can have a more informed learning by walking around and experiencing the urban environment rather than just seeing photographs of it inside of classrooms. So, instead of having only classroom based lectures you will also have a series of Mobile Lectures that you can download as podcasts to a mobile device - for example a mobile phone that supports video and podcasting - and go the specific locations of the videos to experience the urban design principles being discussed.

As we are going mobile and virtual for a large part of the module, we decided to use the Wiki to keep you updated and to place information that will help you learn all the new skills involved in the module on your own time. You will also have your own wiki space where you can discuss issues related to the module and post reflective statements about your learning experience.

Mobile and virtual learning is very exciting and not widely used in teaching in the built environment yet. I hope that by engaging in this project you can help us to reflect on how we can use mobile technology, video and the internet to improve your learning experience.

All details of the module are explained in the handbook for this semester and there are loads of useful links around this wiki space. You just have to explore and if you don't know something, ask!

Do explore this space, be curious, have fun and contact us if you want to discuss anything!

The Module Team

You can find all Mobile Lectures at the main project site: Urban Design Experience .
