Abstract: Brief excerpt from interview: Whether it's transit-oriented development, the rail project, or converting waste to energy, like Hawaiʻi Power does, or studying B&Bs within the tourism industry . . . Some have conducted surveys—little ones—but to capture that data that is important . . . They've interviewed key people in different areas of expertise, within, say, transportation planning or housing, that they include in those papers . . . I have seen a tendency for students from a particular neighborhood topic a topic closely related to that neighborhood . . . So, they take a larger issue, but explore it based on their own neighborhood . . . everyone's closely tied to the place they come from . . . because the issues are similar everywhere . . . so the issues are cross-cutting but then we're bringing a different perspective into the classroom, which is always interesting.
Description: This item includes a segment of an instructor interview in a Writing Intensive course in Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.
