Negotiation, mediation and participatory planning practice are all parts of an effective planning practitioner’s skill set in the 21st century. Knowing how to identify appropriate techniques to engage the community throughout the decision-making process, and implement methods for collaborative and participatory planning, is becoming an increasingly important aspect of planning practice. This course will provide students with the foundations for bringing these skills into their practice as built environment professionals. Through the use of national and international best practice case studies, and through hands on, interactive exercises and group work, students will be exposed to the theory and practice of negotiation, mediation and participatory planning. You will also develop the skill of negotiating projects and desired outcomes, and in mediating conflict, both in the built environment and in the workplace. The applied work will be supplemented by class readings and presentations/lectures which stress the contemporary theoretical and practice-based evaluations of different techniques and approaches. Students will be expected to work in groups, and participate both in class and in the interactive exercises led by the lecturers and tutors. There will be a very strong focus on application and critical analysis, presentation, team work and discussion.
