NPC17 Program: 2017 National Planning Conference
There are two types of activities at NPC17 and you sign up in different ways. Learn More
Ticketed Activities: Activities with a green "Ticket Required" button require a ticket which YOU MUST “purchase” to attend—even if it’s free. Purchase your ticket, add it to your cart, and continue through the purchasing process to confirm your space in that activity. Be sure to double check that you haven’t left something in your cart!
Non-Ticketed Activities: Activities with a Schedule or Schedule button are included in your registration fee and are first-come, first-seated. No spaces are reserved for these activities, so don’t be late. Adding these non-ticketed activities to My Schedule is for your reference only.
In this session, planners will have the opportunity to consider rationales and methods for involving youth in urban planning in ways that address the civic engagement opportunity gap.
Most know "The Death and Life of Great American Cities" but few venture beyond the 1961 classic. What else did Jane Jacobs write and is it relevant? Several fast-paced presentations and a panel discussion will begin to address these questions.
The AICP Exam Prep Workshop will cover the updated AICP exam content outline, a brief tutorial on the application process, and an overview of the five sections of the exam. Fifteen minutes at the end of the workshop are set aside for Q & A. Seating is limited.
Student Learning and Outcomes Assessment are buzzwords flying around academia. Why should this matter to the profession? Explore the opportunities and challenges of engaging external stakeholders in outcomes assessment, and how feedback from practitioners is used to improve learning in the program.
In this session, planners will share their insights about programs that effectively engage young people in community planning. Come with questions on how to implement a program in your community.
This facilitated discussion will engage participants in a dialogue about whether there is a need for greater exercise of leadership in planning practice and, if so, what this means for educating and training planning students and practicing professionals.
