Part of the 9-12 Credit italiaDesign Field School curriculum. The first course of four is taught in Vancouver five weeks prior to departure for Italy. Students prepare research plans for use once they arrive at each of four destinations (Rome, Tuscany, Florence, Milan). The course covers histories of city planning, architecture and urban design in these venues that live on in contemporary Italian design. Field school instruction is in three phases: (1) Vancouver: methodology and preparatory research work; (2) field study on-site in italy, and upon return to Vancouver; (3) synthesis and writing-up of research and final arguments. This course fulfills the first phase. All projects will be available for viewing at the ItaliaDesign Field School public website. Students will also present their work to a live audience.

Registrar Notes:

SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://students.sfu.ca/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating.  Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.

Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community.  Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
