Course description and aims

This course provides students with opportunity to understand roles of water, atmospheric, and biological environments in urban space, and to propose environmental recreation plans. First students try to understand a target area from the view points of natural environments, local people's awareness, governance, and history through literature reviews and fieldworks. Then students propose specific, concrete plans in line with subjects given, considering the recreation of the target area well matched with the environements. The target area changes every year.
This course aims that students understand holistic views of the target area from various aspects such as water, atmospheric and biological environments, as well as histotry and residence awareness, and propose improvement plans with creative minds. Students learn the importance of literature reviews and fieldworks through the course, and learn how to integrate the information acquired and put them into the plan. Students work in a group, and learn the importance of group-works and the leaderships in each group. The proposal should consider not only the environmental and technical aspects but security and cost evaluations as well. Students can learn various ways of presentations, such as poster and oral presentations, mid-term and final reports. Through these presentations students are expected to acquire how to write and discuss logically to others.

Student learning outcomes

By the end of this course, students will be able to:

1) understand environmental problems as complex system (atmoshpere, water, biology, history, people consciousness)
2) understand the importance of literature reviews and fieldworks, and interpret all the results in integrated ways
3) grasp environmental problems in holistic ways based on field and literature surveys, and propose specific plans
4) propose plans not only from environmental/technical points of view but from security/financial points of view
5) present these results logically by various ways (poster and oral presentations, reports)

Keywords

Class flow

Basically students work in a group, and work on the subjects independently. Roles for the literature reviews and fieldworks are decided within the group, and should be executed by the person in charge. Bring back the results and explain to other members of the group, and discuss how those can be utilized for the proposal. Lectures from government or civil group sectors are made. Lectures on field observations, various types of presentations are give by teachers and teaching assistants.
