Ethical Practice for Practicing Planners

Also available bundled with Hot Topics in Planning Law — see below

Ethical Practice for Practicing Planners explains the tenets of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, and challenges participants to analyze situations, reflect on dilemmas, and apply the code. Throughout the course, planning ethics experts discuss how they might respond to several proposed scenarios.

This course is not intended to serve as a Formal Advisory Ruling under the provisions of the AICP Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. Rather, the course begins to address some of the ethical challenges planners may face and highlight available resources for further information or reflection.

The Transportation/Land Use Connection

The Transportation/Land Use Connection investigates the relationship that many planners at all levels of government know, conceptually and intuitively, exist between transportation and land use. It is a connection that should be addressed at all levels of transportation and land-use planning. The course provides information on how the connection works – the directions and magnitudes of causes and effects, how it can be measured, and what the likely impacts are of policies aimed at influencing it.
 
The course provides an overview of transportation and land use history; discusses historic and currently policy; provides an understanding of the institutional context in which transportation and land use decisions are made; suggests policies and strategies for strengthening the transportation and land use connection; and discusses implementation strategies.
