Learning objectives 

The course aims to provide students the following knowledges and skills:

D1. Knowledge and understanding. At the end of the course, students will learn basic theoretical and practical references related to issues, dimensions and plan areas related to design and sustainable management topics connected to space, environmental resources and landscape.

D2. Applying knowledge and understanding. By the end of the course, students will be able to apply knowledges acquired in point 1, with particular attention to the tools for the investigation of the principles of sustainable design, assessment and control of environmental impacts and certification of complex environmental systems, in order to achieve the construction of projects and integrated intervention strategies.

D3. Making judgments. By the end of the course, students will be able to work out on their own about analysis, evaluation, selection and control of the results related to plan solutions' decisions and environmental impacts' control in a dynamic time dimension, using the different analytical techniques examined during the course.

D4. Communication skills. By the end of the course, students will be able to make up their own opinions; explain and clearly apply the concepts, tools and analysis, evaluation and control models, acquired in points 1 and 2.

D5. Learning skills. By the end of the course, students will be able to examine and debate on their own all the topics covered in the course, also by consulting specific bibliography and site texts and making up both institutional and regulatory framework and technical in-depth analysis of interest.

End-of-course test 

The exam will take place by the presentation of the graphic and written works produced by each group during the workshop and a contemporary interview on the theoretical disciplinary themes related to the plan, treated during the lessons and deepened with the reading of some texts of the general bibliography and that suggested from time to time in class.
The final evaluation will be based on 2/3 on the plan and 1/3 on the theoretical preparation.

Any changes to the methods described here, which become necessary to ensure the application of the safety protocols related to the COVID19 emergency will be communicated on the Department, Study Program and Teaching websites.
