Growing EDRA One School at a Time

Posted By David L. Boeck, Wednesday, October 19, 2016

The fall semester has started with a bang in all respects. I am teaching five days a week which is different from last spring when I was supposed to be on sabbatical. I just had one course called “Architecture for Non-Majors”. It’s a very popular course here at the University of Oklahoma. I teach it every semester and in the summer. This semester there are 81 students of the junior and senior levels in it--all eager to learn about architecture and how it influences their lives and the communities they live in. They blog once a week about a building they have encountered somewhere and how they reacted to it. Their reflections are exciting and show the importance of the research that is done in EDRA. I am including the links so you can see what they have to say. When you have 81 students blogging once a week you get a lot of blogs, but each one is so refreshing. Take a look:

As a side note, there is a bunch of new faculty here at OU this fall and a number of them are EDRA people. I see OU becoming a strong supporter of what is done in EDRA because of the focus of our college-incorporating Architecture, Interior Design, Landscape Architecture, Regional and City Planning and last, but not least, Construction Science. What a center of brain power when it comes to influencing the development of our built environment. What will your institution contribute?
