Change Course Proposal
HORT 485 ADVANCED PERMACULTURE DESIGN TOOLS FOR CLIMATE RESILIENCE

Status: Draft

Proposal

Proposal ID: 101490
Type: Change Course
Effective Term: Fall 2017
Justification:
This course is being redeveloped to have a more contemporary topic with a focus on design tools for climate change resilience. The previous version of the course had a more limited student enrollment due to the course structure and instructor work load, so the previous course is being streamlined and restructured, with all new content developed. This requires a change in the course title and description to reflect the changes in the course topic and structure.

Description:
Updated
Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human habitation that enriches the natural world. With climate change, geophysical and social conditions are shifting on the planet. There are specific tools that the Permaculture designer can use to assess, analyze and project future climate scenarios and respond to them with resilient design. Climate analogue identification and climate change forecasting provide the basis for a student design project that addresses current and future climatic conditions. Students will complete all design mapping assignments using Google Earth Pro, and tutorials will be provided as a component of the course curriculum.
