More Course Details


Learn about reflection techniques that support ethical decision-making in turbulent times. Covid-19 recovery, anti-racist initiatives, climate change, and uncertainty compel planners to examine their assumptions, methods, and processes in an ethical context. Individual and collective reflection can help, but it is easier said than done. The workshop includes presentation of techniques for reflection-on-action and reflection-in-action, and using the AICP Code of Ethics, to guide practical judgments, this course provides an opportunity for small group breakout discussions. Anchor your practice in reflection so that you can make ethical decisions, assess past experiences, and have a language to share your thought process with others.
