Implementation of relevant European teaching contents in the studies of landscape architecture
Start date: Nov 1, 2010,
Although European regulations (e.g. concerning environment, competition, or standard) have an impact on the professional work of landscape architects across Europe there are still no standards regarding the content of the European higher education of landscape architects. To assure the quality of university teaching regarding relevant European teaching contents for universities and to enhance the comparability of universities (and hence equal opportunities for students) the development of teaching offers within a teaching cluster regarding relevant European teaching contents for universities involved is proposed. Students of landscape architecture can use these teaching offers throughout Europe. The individual universities for landscape architecture contribute their sectoral expertise to these teaching offers. Thus the project wants to establish a university strategy all over Europe instead of fostering individual universities. The project is the first stage of a two stage process, whose stage 2 deals with the specific development of teaching offers, organisational and legal questions etc. for finally developing and implementing a teaching cluster among landscape architecture universities. The basis for developing the teaching cluster is stage 1 dealt with in this project:The basis is the definition of necessary relevant European teaching contents for the higher education of landscape architects and the development of a qualification profile all over Europe. An exemplary university analysis is carried out by means of the qualification profile. This analysis will reveal, amongst others, the expertise and possible development potential of the universities involved. The analysis results with the presentation of expertise and possible development potential is, among other factors, the first rough basis for developing the teaching cluster.
