Issues in Curriculum Design

Professor, Richard Wesley, Architecture

Thursday, March 14 | 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Convener: Eric Bellin, CTL Graduate Fellow, Design

Location: Meyerson 207

Summary: As chair of Penn’s undergraduate program in Architecture and former chair of the graduate program, Richard wesley has studies and been heavily involved in the development and implementation of architecture curricula. This session will be centered on various issues in the structuring of an architect’s education, ranging from larger questions about the meaning of curriculum in general and the rationale in course sequencing, to the discussion of particular curricular models to the requirements for program accreditation and the various ways they might be satisfied.

While this session is intended primarily for students at the PhD and MS levels, all who have interest in architectural pedagogy are welcome.
All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the School of Design and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
