Main questions: How exams can be organized?

Exams can be organized using the same teaching methodology.

The context of the courses introduced students to the sensitive nature of coastal landscapes and their vital relevance to society, economy and the environment. Planners and designers learn how to manage these territories in a sustainable way and in this aim, CO-LAND Course participants will develop a profound understanding of the specific character of coastal landscapes. Students learn which driving forces are influencing the landscape system and which impact types are most relevant for planning and design responses. This includes the global and European dimension since coastal landscapes are receiving increased attention worldwide.

Participants learn about various approaches to landscape assessment in order to specify the challenges and potentials of a coastal landscape. They have the opportunity to define and test assessment models and derive relevant knowledge for planning and design.

Different approaches to strategy building, planning and design in the context of coastal landscapes are introduced in the last phase of the course. On this basis, the course participants are able to draft a strategy and a master plan for a coastal area, taking economic, ecological and social aspects and current policies into account.

The design of the online exams within CO-LAND is created by taking in consideration the main learning objectives assumed by the project:

  1. Understanding Coastal Landscapes in Europe,
  2. Understanding Green/Blue Infrastructure,
  3. Understanding and Applying Landscape Assessment and Evaluation,
  4. Acquiring Transformative competences,
  5. Understanding and Applying Integrative planning and design methods.
