Diversity and Equity in Planning Pedagogy

I am the lead author on a peer-reviewed commentary entitled, Teaching Equity and Advocacy Planning in a ‘Post-Racial’ Multicultural World for the Journal of Planning Education and Research. The paper brought together four scholars who have taught courses in diversity and inequality in planning to reflect on the challenges of speaking to and about issues of race, ethnicity, and cultural difference inside the classroom and working with disadvantaged communities outside the classroom. It offers pedagogical lessons for planning, highlighting strategies to help students and instructors navigate tough personal and professional questions about advocacy and equity planning in today’s multicultural, “post-racial” world.
