Master's in Local Environmental Change and Sustainable Cities

Analysing and reflecting on sustainability transformations in cities and regions with regard to topics such as waste, energy, water, transportation and climate change.

Cities around the world are dealing with environmental issues: air pollution, urban heat islands, stormwater flooding, the growing accumulation of solid waste. What can be done to keep citizens safe from environmental hazards and natural disasters? What is needed to ensure a pleasant living environment? And how can residents, commuters and businesses be stimulated – or if necessary, forced with legislation or financial sanctions – to do their bit? With the problems increasing, rather than diminishing, there’s a growing demand for professionals with an expertise in the development of sustainable cities.

The Master’s specialisation in Local Environmental Change and Sustainable Cities focuses on the local level of sustainability transformations. You’ll be introduced to the latest scientific insights, which will be illustrated with numerous examples of how cities and regions all over the world tackle these problems.

Waste, energy, water, transportation

A broad scope of environmental issues will be addressed, as well as existing measures and instruments. Stormwater management, forms of renewable energy and green roofs are just a small sample of what you can expect to encounter. You’ll also, for example, discover that waste management goes far beyond recycling schemes and how cradle-to-grave products are making way for cradle-to-cradle. In addition, we’ll be dealing with citizens’ initiatives in renewable energy as well as new focus areas, like the possible environmental advantages of community food systems.

This Master’s specialisation will teach you to become the bridge between science and society. What do the latest results in environmental research actually mean and how can that knowledge be converted into concrete plans and policies that will bring about the change needed? In this, it’s crucial that you understand how policymaking and legislation works as well as have some insight into human behaviour. For a plan to work, the people and businesses in the city need to collaborate. Environmental and behavioural psychology will therefore be addressed in various courses within this specialisation too.

See the website: http://www.ru.nl/masters/local

Why study Local Environmental Change and Sustainable Cities?

1. The specialisation strongly focuses on the local level of sustainability transformations, in particular sustainable cities.
2. The natural as well as social and political aspects of environmental issues will be addressed.
3. Related aspects of spatial planning will be incorporated in this specialisation. You can also take courses from the Master’s in Spatial Planning as electives for a multidisciplinary perspective.
3. Thanks to our extensive research, our staff members are among the leading experts when it comes to waterproofing and climate proofing cities.
4. You’ll gain insight on how to take scientific results and convert them into viable plans and policies.
5. Because the Netherlands is known for its expertise in water, climate and spatial planning, it offers a great atmosphere to study this field.
6. You’ll also benefit from the advantages of the Master’s programme in Environment and Society Studies in general.

Applied behaviour analysis has been recognised as the treatment of choice for a broad range of clinical problems (e.g., early intervention for autism, responding to challenging behaviour, classroom management, effective instructional practices). Positive behavioural support (PBS) is an example of behaviour analysis in a particular practice setting (usually implemented for adults with intellectual disabilities or within special education settings). PBS aims to improve a person’s quality of life through the use of a framework that allows behaviour to be analysed in the social, physical, and broader context in which it occurs. The aims of the course are to develop an advanced conceptual understanding of applied behaviour analysis, behavioural concepts and philosophy relevant to the development and treatment of psychological disorders, advanced knowledge of positive behavioural support and research methods. In addition, students will develop key competencies in the use of behavioural principles in clinical settings using the positive behaviour support model. In addition to obtaining PBS and behaviour analytic knowledge, graduates will have acquired critical evaluation, time management, collaborative working, sound professional conduct, and oral communication skills. The course is taught via lectures, group discussions, seminars, and activities. Assessments include written assignments in a range of formats and unseen exams. Students may undertake a research thesis in a range of available applied settings with a range of participants, or they may complete an internship across two years (limited places available). During the internship, students will work in an applied setting and will submit a portfolio of their clinical work at the end of each year.

"This course is one of the first to offer a specalisation in positive behavioural support in Europe, taught by leading UK experts and offering exceptional learning opportunities." Course Director Dr Rebecca Sharp

This course will enable you to develop your understanding of concepts, theories and approaches to school/college student behaviour identified as challenging in some respect, know how to assess and address such behaviour, and develop the skills to improve aspects of institutional provision in ways that will support improved behaviour and, hence, learning and achievement also.

You will be studying on a course specifically designed for education professionals, which is focused on:
• approaches to understanding problematic student behaviour in the context in which it occurs
• ways in which the learning environment influences behaviour and learning
• methods of assessing and addressing problematic behaviour and, thus, enhancing learning
• ways to audit school/college provision that relates in some way to young people’s behaviour, and highlight areas for development
• approaches to designing, implementing and evaluating plans to bring about such development.

This is an online version of the course. All the materials are available through the University’s website so you will be able to study the whole course at a distance. Support from course tutors is available through the web site, by email or by telephone.

Course detail

• Study on a course designed for education professionals, which will help equip you to meet a diverse range of learning needs within your teaching environment, and to support your colleagues
• Explore course content highly relevant to mainstream and special school practitioners alike, focusing on behavioural and learning needs of children and young people, and how potential barriers to learning can be removed
• Develop your understanding of concepts, theories and approaches to student behaviour, behaviour management and inclusion in schools and on your potential for influencing change
• Gain insight into challenging behaviours – causes and appropriate responses
• Benefit from a qualification that could lead you into more specialist roles in Education (such as SENCO) and/or further study (eg the National Award for SEN Co-ordinators), and may also be used as the basis for a Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) claim into an MA Education course (Level 7).

Modules

• Understanding Pupil Behaviour in Schools
• Addressing Challenging Pupil Behaviour in Schools

Assessment

The course provides students with a carefully planned sequence of learning opportunities to facilitate individual development through six assessments.

This sequence includes academic essays focused on understanding challenging behaviour, assessments of individual student behaviour identified as problematic, the development and implementation of plans to address this, reflection on institutional behaviour policy and a piece of small-scale research in schools/colleges.

• Assessment one, Unit 1, requires reflection on understandings of behavioural problems, taking individual students’ contexts into account. The second and third involve assessing a learner whose behaviour is seen as challenging, and designing, developing, implementing and evaluating a plan designed to address this behaviour.

• Assessments in Unit 2 relate to analysis and reflection on current school/college policy on behaviour, and the design, development, implementation and critical evaluation of a small-scale research project focused on effecting change in the institution that will have a positive impact on student behaviour.

Careers

Typically graduates of this course either continue working in their own institutions or else are promoted to positions of greater responsibility.

Successful completion results in 60 Masters’ level credits that may be used towards an MA Education.
