DSL Symposium: Crossing Broders in Landscape Architecture

On Thursday, November 8, the Dutch School of Landscape Architecture (DSL) organizes the symposium 'Crossing Borders in Landscape Architecture' in Delft on the meaning of internationalisation for the field of landscape architecture.

Organised by Landscape architecture

Thu 8 November 2018 14:00

Venue TU Delft
Room Berlagezaal 1

What does internationalisation mean for practice and competences of (future) landscape architects who work abroad and vice versa? What does internationalisation require of curricula? And what is necessary to become successful in international research projects?

The Dutch Master's programs (Wageningen UR, TU Delft, Amsterdam Academy), Bachelor's programs (VHL Velp and HAS Den Bosch), the NVTL and representatives from agencies and the government share their experiences, vision and questions. What are the trends, opportunities and risks? And how can we cope with different cultural backgrounds & ethical dilemmas?
