Arguing that traditional approaches to planning are insufficient to address the complexities of transforming cities and regions in contemporary society, this innovative book makes the case for training planners in new and creative ways as coordinators, enablers and facilitators.

An international range of teaching case studies offer a wide and distinctive set of ideas for the future of planning education along with practical tips to assist in adapting pedagogical approaches to various institutional settings. Additionally, the book promotes a stimulating interdisciplinary dialogue with contributions by leading educational specialists that situate the new and emergent approaches in planning education within the context of urban and regional challenges and the broader framework of contemporary pedagogical debates.

This original book will be a useful resource for academic scholars in urban, regional and spatial planning, and all those concerned with the future of higher education in relevant subjects. Chapters provide food for thought on making responsible choices while training planning professionals to act in a socially responsible manner and to support communities to think, design and deliver change in qualified ways.
