OPPI Forum Friday Webinar: The State of Ontario's Planning Schools

Start/End Date: Friday, July 17, 2020 12:15 PM - Friday, July 17, 2020 1:15 PM
District: Ontario

On Friday, July 17, 2020, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m., please join OPPI for a conversation on the state of Ontario's planning schools during and post-COVID-19.

 

Since the declaration of the COVID-19 pandemic, accredited planning programs in Ontario have been forced to redefine themselves and in how they provided quality education and assisted students. Accredited planning programs teach the future of the planning profession, so how will these programs survive and thrive after COVID-19? Join planning program directors and key faculty in a discussion of the challenges faced so far and future opportunities for these programs – for this upcoming year, next year and beyond - and what the impact is on the future of the planning profession as students become planners and RPPs.

 

Guests include:

·     Dr. Ryan Gibson, Associate Professor and the Libro Professor of Regional Economic Development in the Rural Planning and Development program at the University of Guelph

·     Dr. Markus Moos, RPP, MCIP, Director of the School of Planning in the Faculty of Environment at the University of Waterloo

·     Dr. Luisa Sotomayor, RPP, Assistant Professor and the Coordinator of the Graduate Programs in Planning in the Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change at York University

 

On a bi-weekly basis, OPPI will deliver nine timely and relevant webinars for this first season of Forum Fridays. We invite guest speakers to discuss the issues planners are interested in hearing about. OPPI encourages members to visit our website for more information on our webinar series, and keep an eye out in the Planner newsletter for further announcements.

 

To register, please click on the button below and enter your information on our registration webpage and click on the "Register and Join Webcast" button. A confirmation email will be sent to you once registration is complete. Members can also submit questions in advance of our conversation through the registration webpage.
