Most often, campus master planning consists of updating plans for existing university campuses. This process includes the analysis and conservation of the structures, open spaces, and buildings, all of which represent the history, the present and the future of the institution. However, an equally important part of this process is identifying opportunities for new sites, which are often on the periphery of the existing campus. Thus, the relationship of the campus to an adjoining community becomes a critical consideration in the campus master plan exercise.
Translating for #PedagogicalMasterPlanning – testing some ideas and language:
Pedagogical master planning consists of strategically designing plans and structures for evolving, school curriculum and instruction, as well as all of the intersecting educational domains, such as professional learning and development, assessment, learning environments, stakeholder communications, etc. This process includes the inventory and analysis of existing structures, methods, and pedagogies, all of which represent the history and the present of the institution. However, an equally important part of this process is identifying opportunities for emerging and innovative practices, which are often on the periphery and margins of the existing learning complex. Thus, the relationship of the current reality to an adjacent possible becomes a critical consideration in the pedagogical master plan exercise.
