Unit description:

Focuses on how people create and maintain sense of place, value environments, and understand community. The unit provides students with opportunities to work on the design, implementation, and analysis of a team-based research project about these issues in a meaningful partnership with a local government. Lectures provide the necessary historical, theoretical and practical grounding for each step of the project, while workshops allow students to practise the hands-on skills needed to achieve the aims and objectives of the project. Field work is integral to the unit.
