The Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning and the PhD Committee of ACSP invites doctoral students of planning working on their dissertation research to attend the 2016 ACSP PhD Workshop. This year, the workshop will be hosted in a one-day session in Portland, OR, just prior to the annual ACSP conference. The Workshop attracts PhD students from planning programs from around the world to gather and discuss the practical details of creating, producing, distributing and consuming planning knowledge among scholars. Workshop participants will learn to conceive, design, and present PhD-quality research to multiple audiences, including, most centrally, their peers. Students will advise one another as scholars pursuing unique research paths within a community of shared inquiry. The faculty work jointly as teachers, advisors, and coaches.
2016 JPER Writing Workshop for Early Career Planning Scholars
The editors of the Journal of Planning Education and Research (JPER) will host the annual JPER Writing Workshop for New Scholars on July 20-22, 2016, at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick, NJ. Our goal is to improve the quality of written scholarship among new faculty of planning and related academic programs. The workshop is intended for recent Ph.D. recipients (or candidates graduating in Spring 2016) in urban planning, urban studies, and closely related fields. Untenured assistant professors also are eligible to participate.
There is no registration fee for participants, but attendees are responsible for their own travel. Up to 20 applicants will be selected. Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by March 22, 2016. Please direct questions on the workshop program and paper requirement to Karen Lowrie, Managing Editor, email@example.com.
The ACSP Committee on Diversity, in collaboration with the ACSP Planners of Color Interest Group organizes the Junior Faculty of Color workshop every other year [odd numbered years]. In the summer of 2014, the workshop was held at the University of Southern California; for 2015 the workshop was held at Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. If you will be entering your second or third year of the tenure track during this year, this workshop is for you! The workshop aims to provide early-career, tenure-track faculty with the skills and knowledge to flourish in the planning professoriate. Future workshops will be hosted by an ACSP member planning program, and the event will provide close interaction with senior faculty from various types of ACSP institutions. The workshops focus on three areas: developing your initial research and publishing agenda, making service and teaching effective, obtaining grants, and planning a long-term career trajectory that will make an impact. Details for this workshop should be posted here before the end of April.
Our world is changing, and urban planning can lead the way. In an increasingly diverse and globalized world, urban planners work to create communities that are economically thriving, socially just, and environmentally sustainable. A doctoral degree in planning can prepare you to link new knowledge to issues that affect communities and policy-making worldwide.
