Universal Design in Play: A Behavioral Comparison of Three Playgrounds - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Universal Design in Play: A Behavioral Comparison of Three Playgrounds - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Apr 25, 2018

Accessible play environments have received considerable attention in recent practice, yet little comparative research has been done evaluating the use of specific park and playground features. This research evaluates the value of Universal Design (UD) in playgrounds in a comparative study using new graphic methods addressing the primary UD question and overall physical activity in the park environment. The evidence-based findings can support public policy for the promotion of community-wide healthy active living.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the multi-faceted benefits of Universal Design in playground environments.
  • Describe the research-grounded basis for the conclusions presented.
  • Apply behavior observation techniques in public outdoor open space.

Landscape Performance to Demonstrate Impact: Sustainable Campus Landscapes - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Landscape Performance to Demonstrate Impact: Sustainable Campus Landscapes - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

May 1, 2018

This webinar is part of the Campus Planning & Design Professional Practice Network’s Planning and Design for Campus Resiliency series.

Understanding the environmental, social and economic benefits of sustainable landscapes is essential for designers, developers, investors, and policymakers who influence land development and want better results. This session introduces and explores the concept of landscape performance and why it is critical to achieving sustainability and reaching key decision-makers, with a particular focus on examples from sustainable campuses in the United States. The Landscape Architecture Foundation will present an overview of the Landscape Performance Series, an online, interactive set of resources to help evaluate performance, show value and make the case for sustainable landscape solutions. Learn how the Case Study Briefs, Benefits Toolkit, Fast Facts, and more can be used to evaluate and demonstrate the impact of sustainable campus landscapes and how you can be part of this growing online resource.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the concept of landscape performance for campus landscapes and why it is critical to achieving sustainability and reaching key decision-makers
  • Learn about resources available in the Landscape Performance Series to show value, quantify benefits, and make the case for sustainable landscape solutions
  • Know how to access and submit projects, tools, and research to the online Landscape Performance Series database
