Teaching Fellowship | Harvard University Graduate School of Design

Teaching Fellowship
Harvard University Graduate School of Design
Boston, MA

The Daniel Urban Kiley Teaching Fellowship is awarded annually to an emerging designer whose work articulates the potential for landscape as a medium of design in the public realm. The Kiley Fellow will be appointed Lecturer in Landscape Architecture at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design for the 2017-18 academic year. While the Kiley Fellowship is awarded competitively on an annual basis, successful Fellows are eligible to have their academic appointments renewed for a second year at the rank of Lecturer, dependent upon review of their teaching, research and creative practice.

This initiative is intended to recognize and foster emerging design educators whose work embodies the potential for landscape as a medium of design in the public realm. The Daniel Urban Kiley Fellowship builds upon the history of pedagogic innovation at the GSD as well as the century of leadership in landscape education within the Department of Landscape Architecture.

Deadline for receipt of applications: February 10, 2017

April is World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM)

During World Landscape Architecture Month, we will begin a collaborative relationship between ASLA’s chapters and IFLA member organizations around the globe for April and beyond. Our Chapter is partnering with Norway.

ASLA has three initial activity suggestions:

1.     “Designed by a Landscape Architect" campaign; photos posted on social media.

2.     International Sketch Walk Day: to be announced.

3.     Connect ASLA Student Chapters with IFLA student affiliates.

 By participating in the "Designed by a Landscape Architect" campaign you can raise awareness of the contribution landscape architects make in our communities and worldwide. It is easy to do. Print the cards that say "Designed by a Landscape Architect", cut one out, hold it up in front of a favorite landscape that was designed by a landscape architect and take a photo of the site, including the card. Check out the Idaho Montana ASLA Facebook page for examples.

The cards to be used are attached to this message and posted on www.idmtasla.org ; print them, share them, send them to others for use in photos. Photos can be submitted by non-landscape architects as long as the site in the photo was designed by a landscape architect. Post them with #WLAM2015 on your favorite social media, including Idaho Montana ASLA Facebook page. Also, please go to www.asla.org/wlam  to submit the picture so ASLA can catalogue everything. Be sure to check out what others are posting; it will be a world tour of landscape architecture!

Stay tuned for the International Sketch Walk details.

Finally, we would like to coordinate students from our ASLA chapters to connect with students of landscape architecture affiliated with IFLA organizations. One of our goals during WLAM is reaching students and developing the next generation of landscape architects. The IMASLA Chapter Leadership will be contacting our Student ASLA Chapters soon.
