Oregon's Permaculture Networking Site in Corvallis, OR
Oregon State University’s Department of Horticulture presents:
Advanced Permaculture Design Practicum ONLINE
Join in this project-based teaching that builds on the curriculum of the Permaculture Design Course. Each student chooses a design project track from one of four areas: broad scale rural farm or ranch, urban neighborhood or community development, educational institution or organization, or commercial property and business development. Students will conduct an in-depth site analysis and draft a design document to be completed halfway through the course. The document will be reviewed and a research topic assigned to fill in knowledge gaps related to the design. The student will revise all or part of the design based on the research, creating an extensive project portfolio and receiving instructor and student feedback throughout.
This course is run through the OSU extended campus Blackboard system and consists of readings, narrated PowerPoint and video presentations, assignments, and written feedback as well as one-on-one video chat communication. Students will post their assignments on blogs and will receive feedback from an instructor and other students. Students will have the opportunity to meet the instructor in person or through video chat at the beginning of the research and design revision stages of the course.
Advanced Permaculture Design Practicum is for PDC graduates who want to deepen their design fluency in a guided and supportive structure. Whether you went through your PDC as an OSU student or through another organization, this course will enhance your Permaculture design literacy and give you more confidence to design professionally in a diversity of situations.
