This subject, together with 15904 Major Project: Analysis and Outcomes, develops core skills that give students the ability to successfully complete rigorous and original planning problem-solving exercises. In this subject, the students produce a literature review of their chosen planning problem and determine the research design and methodological approach. The second part of the major project is completed in 15904 Major Project: Analysis and Outcomes.
The literature review identifies contemporary analyses relating to the planning problem, and places the planning problem into the context of wider planning issues. The literature review also critiques contemporary planning practice relating to the problem, and develops the student's ability to constructively reflect on the validity of current planning methods.
Students develop an understanding of relevant research approaches and analytical techniques used in problem-solving. The subject is undertaken primarily via self-direction, but students are carefully guided by their supervisor and meet on a regular basis for tutorials.
