Navigating Community Engagement During COVID-19: Perspective, Practice, Prospect - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW) / 1.0 AICP

Jul 8, 2020 3:00pm ‐ Jul 8, 2020 4:00pm

Credits: None available.

Community engagement is an essential component of landscape architecture practice and is often required for projects to move forward. Collaborating with the public is key to better planning, better design, better decisions, and better outcomes. But the COVID-19 pandemic brings new challenges to this critical aspect of our work – gatherings are limited, online tools are still being developed, and internet access can become essential to participation. Engaging and empowering communities requires new strategies and approaches. Effective public engagement that emphasizes human connections can still occur, even if it looks and feels different from pre-COVID-19 meetings.

Learning Objectives:

  • Employ strategic thinking to determine if and how a project may advance given any barriers to engagement.
  • Explore how to build an equitable and responsible engagement approach under the limitations of physical distancing, leveraging existing tools differently.
  • Identify strategies to address or plan for behavior changes from in-person meetings and presentations to virtual meetings.

This webinar is free for all ASLA members. The non-member price is $50. Log in to ASLA Online Learning with your ASLA username and password for the member price.

Oct 29, 2019 2:00pm ‐ Oct 29, 2019 3:00pm

Credits: None available.

OLIN Labs, the research and development group within OLIN, is a community of practice that focuses on five interdependent areas of inquiry: Ecology, Technology, Construction, Design and People. Tech Lab​ is responsible for the development and stewardship of custom design technology and workflows for landscape architecture, from parametric design and visualization workflows to mapping, analysis and communication.

This presentation will present the various modes in which OLIN designers and researchers work to develop, implement, and disseminate innovative tech solutions in our practice and beyond through: Education (which includes identification of needs and opportunities in our current practice and internal training), Development (the creation of new tools and methods to meet the needs of our practice), and Research (including external partnerships and primary research to create new knowledge in the realm of technology.) Case studies of current OLIN Labs initiatives will be used to exemplify these three levels of inquiry.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Measure software and tool usage in professional practice and evaluate needs and capacity for training and education.
  2. Assess the impact of creating new custom tools and methods to solve both unique and routine landscape design problems.
  3. Structure research into emerging trends in landscape architectural professional practice.
