3 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project The story so far… It all began at the ECLAS Conference 2000 in Dubrovnik, where ECLAS:The story so far… It all began at the ECLAS Conference 2000 in Dubrovnik, where ECLAS: –Voted in a new constitution including redefined goals; –Agreed to levy a modest membership fee; –Resolved to comment on the draft European Landscape Convention; and… –Decided to investigate the possibilities of applying for funding for an EU Thematic Network Project LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

4 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project The new ECLAS constitution redefined the goals of the organisation as follows: The European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools exists to foster and develop scholarship in landscape architecture throughout Europe by strengthening contacts and enriching the dialogue between members of Europe’s landscape academic community; by representing the interests of this community within the wider European social and institutional context; and by making the collective expertise of ECLAS available, where appropriate, in furthering the discussion of landscape architectural issues at the European level LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

5 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project On investigating the goals of the ERASMUS Programme’s Thematic Network Projects, it appeared that the goals of ECLAS and the goals of the Thematic Network Projects were, in fact, very similarOn investigating the goals of the ERASMUS Programme’s Thematic Network Projects, it appeared that the goals of ECLAS and the goals of the Thematic Network Projects were, in fact, very similar The main difference between ECLAS and ERASMUS TNPs was simple: ECLAS had no money and ERASMUS Programme was offering up to € per annum for running Thematic Network Projects for a period of up to three years LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

6 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture „Thematic Networks are one of the main innovations of the Socrates-Erasmus Programme. They were created to deal with forward looking, strategic reflection of the scientific, educational and institutional issues in the main areas of higher education “

There is the rationale as far as the Thematic Network Project is concerned, but also a broader ‘hidden agenda’ which relates to the wider goals of ECLASThere is the rationale as far as the Thematic Network Project is concerned, but also a broader ‘hidden agenda’ which relates to the wider goals of ECLAS Only the official rationale is explained in the project bid…Only the official rationale is explained in the project bid… LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

15 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Explain the rational and background to the project (i):Explain the rational and background to the project (i): “Man is a singular creature. He has a set of gifts which make him unique among the animals: so that unlike them, he is not a figure in the landscape - he is a shaper of the landscape." Jacob Bronowski, 1973, The Ascent of Man The bid starts by putting landscape architecture firmly at the centre of the wider scheme of things regarding “life, the universe and everything…”The bid starts by putting landscape architecture firmly at the centre of the wider scheme of things regarding “life, the universe and everything…” LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

16 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Explain the rational and background to the project (ii):Explain the rational and background to the project (ii): Landscape architecture is the discipline concerned with mankind's conscious shaping of his external environment. It involves planning, design and management of the landscape to create, maintain, protect and enhance places so as to be both functional, beautiful and sustainable (in every sense of the word), and appropriate to diverse human and ecological needs. The definition of landscape architecture chosen seeks to be as broad and inclusive as possible, taking in all potential aspects of the field, reflecting the approach to landscape taken in the European Landscape Convention…The definition of landscape architecture chosen seeks to be as broad and inclusive as possible, taking in all potential aspects of the field, reflecting the approach to landscape taken in the European Landscape Convention… LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

17 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Explain the rational and background to the project (iii):Explain the rational and background to the project (iii): The multifaceted nature of the landscape and mankind’s interaction with it, means that the subject area is one of unusual breadth, drawing on and integrating concepts and approaches, not just from the two sides of the traditional divide between the creative arts and the natural sciences, but incorporating many aspects of the humanities and technology as well. This statement stakes a claim for the ‘rights’ to a wide territory on behalf of landscape architecture and defines it as a uniquely interdisciplinary subjectThis statement stakes a claim for the ‘rights’ to a wide territory on behalf of landscape architecture and defines it as a uniquely interdisciplinary subject LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

18 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Explain the rational and background to the project (iv):Explain the rational and background to the project (iv): This complexity is closely reflected by the diversity of approaches to the discipline which have developed throughout Europe. In some countries, for example, landscape architecture can trace its roots back to horticulture, while in others it has grown out of architecture, planning or environmental science, and elsewhere out of agriculture, or ecology and nature conservation. Here it is made clear that the potential problems of developing a common understanding between European landscape architecture academics go deeper that mere differences in language – but that the potential benefits of cooperation are very greatHere it is made clear that the potential problems of developing a common understanding between European landscape architecture academics go deeper that mere differences in language – but that the potential benefits of cooperation are very great LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

19 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Explain the rational and background to the project (v):Explain the rational and background to the project (v): This diversity of intellectual provenance is also clearly illustrated by the range of different types of higher education institutions across the continent in which landscape architecture teaching and research has been established. These range from universities specialising in the fine arts to those dedicated to agriculture and forestry, and encompass technical universities as well as the more broadly-based 'general' universities. Seen from a European perspective, the academic world clearly does not really know what to do with us. In times like these – of economies and cut backs this could be dangerous: there is a need to make and effort to better explain what we do to our peersSeen from a European perspective, the academic world clearly does not really know what to do with us.

20 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Explain the rational and background to the project (vi):Explain the rational and background to the project (vi): In addition to the inherent complexity of content, there is also considerable variation in the state of development, i.e. the 'maturity' of the discipline from country to country, although in comparison with the majority of traditional subject areas within higher education, landscape architecture must be generally classed as a 'young' discipline. Indeed landscape architecture is perhaps one of the few academic disciplines which was established in the New World (Harvard, 1900) before it became the subject of university education in Europe (Oslo, 1919). As compared to many disciplines in Europe and with landscape architecture in the USA, we have some catching up to do to: “we are number two – we (must) try harder”!As compared to many disciplines in Europe and with landscape architecture in the USA, we have some catching up to do to: “we are number two – we (must) try harder”! LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

21 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Explain the rational and background to the project (vii):Explain the rational and background to the project (vii): As a result of the relative youthfulness of the discipline, landscape architecture courses tend often to be relatively poorly resourced in comparison with other, more traditional, disciplines. One consequence of this is the relatively modest staffing levels, both in absolute terms and as measured against the unusually wide-ranging nature of the subject area. This in turn has had an impact on the research potential of the discipline: the necessary 'critical mass' for the development of functioning academic communities within the various sub-disciplines of landscape architecture simply does not exist in the majority of European countries, a fact which is by itself a strong argument for closer trans-national cooperation. European cooperation is therefore essential in the long term to create the necessary conditions for successful research within a varied, diverse and under-resourced disciplineEuropean cooperation is therefore essential in the long term to create the necessary conditions for successful research within a varied, diverse and under-resourced discipline LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

22 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Explain the rational and background to the project (viii):Explain the rational and background to the project (viii): (The) richness (of European landscape education), which reflects both the diversity of the landscape itself and European cultural approaches to it, should not lightly be discarded in order to achieve conformity for its own sake, but rather be seen as an important potential for the co-ordinated development of new specialisations to address society’s and the profession’s needs. Convergence towards a common paradigm and the resulting agreement on accepted research and development goals is, however, a natural development process in all disciplines, and landscape architecture in Europe has reached a stage where it is ready to take a significant step in this direction. While we need to respect differences and diversity, we cannot afford to hide behind them. There is a need to talk about, and if possible agree upon and codify the content and substance of what we doWhile we need to respect differences and diversity, we cannot afford to hide behind them.

23 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Explain the rational and background to the project (ix):Explain the rational and background to the project (ix): The opportunities offered by the LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project in landscape architecture present the possibility for making a 'quantum leap' in both the quality and effectiveness of co-operation between European landscape architecture educators… As an established organisation seeking to bring together all Europe’s landscape schools, ECLAS provides an ideal vehicle, not just for carrying through the LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project, but for continuing to implement and develop the outcomes of the TNP in the long term. We need to grasp the opportunities offered by the Thematic Network Funding, but also consider how we transform them into long term benefits for ECLAS too. There is a need to think in terms of ‘outcomes’ as well as ‘outputs’We need to grasp the opportunities offered by the Thematic Network Funding, but also consider how we transform them into long term benefits for ECLAS too. There is a need to think in terms of ‘outcomes’ as well as ‘outputs’ LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

24 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Project goals (i) The goal is to take the discipline to a new level of maturity, by building on and developing European best practice and identifying key needs and urgent areas for action in education and research within the discipline. To achieve this it will be necessary to fulfil the following objectives: –to strengthen the European landscape architecture academic community, to highlight the European dimensions and identity of the discipline in order to effect improvements in all aspects of education and scholarship; –to move towards the convergence of undergraduate curricula by the identification of common reference points, while seeking to develop specialisms at more advanced levels, which grow out of the existing variety of landscape issues and professional needs and the different environmental conditions within the countries of Europe; –to develop common agreed goals for learning outcomes and improved teaching methods backed by common teaching resources for landscape architecture education (including European Masters and PhD programmes), building on best European practice and emerging new directions, methods and technologies, especially ICT; LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

25 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Project goals (ii) –to strengthen the potential for research in landscape architecture at the European level, as an important precondition for research-led teaching, by seeking to co-ordinate existing activities and define common and urgent research agendas, developing common research methods education as well as seeking new means to disseminate research findings. –to improve communication with professional bodies and public authorities, landscape students and other stakeholders, as well as with related disciplines at the European level in order to ensure educational and research needs at all levels, including for lifelong learning, can be identified and addressed to the highest possible standards in line with agreed professional profiles, and new needs effectively predicted; –to initiate measures necessary to facilitate the improved future mobility of staff and students; and –to strengthen the long-term framework through which this process of dialogue and co-operation can continue at the same level of quality and intensity beyond the time scale of the Thematic Network Project.

74 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network Project Project Outputs Year One: Data collection –How can we achieve the year one outputs? –What is the process for each of the working groups? 1. input data before workshop 2. discuss and clarify what has been entered during the meeting of the working group meeting in Kassel 3. add missing data and modify/update what was entered previously on the basis of the Kassel discussions after returning home 4. agree a final version amongst all members of the working group via the web site communication tools LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture

75 Role of the Working Groups in the overall project structure

76 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Taking a closer look…

77 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Role of the log in area of the project web site

78 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Home page of the Network Members Log-in Area

79 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture The ‚Work Space Home Page‘ is the same for each Working Group

80 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Imagine that your Working Group is the editorial board for this fictitious Encyclopaedia: it is your job to write an introduction to contributors to the specific volume of this 12 volume work dealing with your subject area… Task One: Description of Working Group subject area

81 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Defining the Scope of each Working Group from the „top down“ One way to think about the task for each Working Group is to consider that you are trying to define both the boundaries of your particular subject area (the edges of this ‘box’) as well as to specify its contents. This can be done using both the Subject Area Description and the set of related Keywords

82 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Data Input Form: New Course Unit

83 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Survey of Course Units relative to each Working Group Each course unit can be related to one or more Working Groups on the basis of the Subject Matter covered Possible Approach to Analyzing the Teaching within each Subject Area from the „bottom up“

84 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture The content of each Course Unit can be described in terms of selected keywords Possible Approach to Analysing the Teaching within each Subject Area from the „bottom up“ Course Unit descriptions as a basis for analysing teaching within each Subject Area The `size´of each Course Unit can be described in terms of the number of ECTS units it is allocated

85 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Possible Approach to Analysing the Teaching within each Subject Area from the „bottom up“ The content and size of course units offered by different European Universities dealing with similar topics within the scope of each Working Group will correspond with each other to varying degrees

86 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Total extent of Teaching within the Subject Area at all LE:NOTRE schools Possible Approach to Analysing the Teaching within each Subject Area from the „bottom up“ Issues dealt with by some schools only Topics dealt with by several but not all schools Agreed Inner Core Area The degree of correspondence between course units within each Subject Area can provide an objective basis for defining agreed Core Areas and peripheral topics

87 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Range of issues covered by taught courses within one Working Group Subject Area at LE:NOTRE schools Possible Approach to Analysing the Teaching within each Subject Area from the „bottom up“ Other issues belonging within a Working Group Subject Area but not currently the subject of taught courses. These are potential areas for advanced teaching or research topics

88 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Possible Results of Survey of teaching in different Working Group Areas Most teaching takes place in one “corner” of the Subject Area and overlaps with neighbouring Working Groups

89 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Possible Results of Survey of teaching in different Working Group Areas Two different areas of teaching can be identified within one Working Group Area with little overlap between them

90 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Subject matter of teaching is very diffuse with little in common between individual schools and having overlaps with all adjacent Working Groups Possible Results of Survey of teaching in different Working Group Areas

91 LE:NOTRE Thematic Network in Landscape Architecture Possible Results of Survey of teaching in different Working Group Areas Close agreement between all LE:NOTRE schools on the issues dealt with by teaching within the field of the Working Group
