Presentation available at http://www.kompan.com/sw68429.asp May-June, 2007 Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) Conference Sacramento, CA Full Day Intensive Panel Presenter Title: Sustaining the Schoolyard Garden Presented the Learning Landscape Initiative’s schoolyard gardens as a case study. For many, the schoolyard will be the primary ‘nature’ experience in their childhood. As cities grow, it becomes more important that we use our school grounds in ever more creative ways to help people learn about nature. With all of the enthusiasm for greening school grounds, we lack enough research to know what components ensure sustainability of these gardens. This workshop presented several case studies of school garden planning and implementation to examine with researchers and practitioners some of the key elements that aid school garden sustainability. May-June, 2007 Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) Conference Sacramento, CA Panel Presenter Title: The Child and Youth Friendly City Initiative of Denver Presented the Learning Landscape Initiative as a case study of the Child and Youth Friendly City Initiative. The City of Denver has invested a significant amount of money in public school playgrounds improving outdated and unsafe infrastructure which enhances the quality of life for children, youth, and other residents. The initiative has been a major component of the Denver Blueprint plan and is used as a determinant of quality of life for residents throughout Denver. March, 2007 Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute Conference Denver, CO Poster Presenter & Guest Speaker Title: Planning and Designing for Healthy Childhood Development: Mapping Places of Play and Prey with Kids Presented findings from one of my independent studies in which aerial maps were used to investigate Denver neighborhoods through children's eyes.

This research served to empower students and to educate city officials about the benefits and deficits of inner-city living for Denver youth. Poster and Paper available at http://bambilyost.com/Publications.aspx February, 2006 Robert Woods Johnson Foundation Active Living Conference Coronada, CA Poster Presenter Title: Rethinking Playgrounds for Physical Education - Evaluation of the Effects of Policy, Design Standards, Curriculum, Risk Management, and the Built Environment on the Physical Activity of Children at Three Denver Public Schools Presented findings from a year long collaborative research project working with 573 elementary school students, physical education teachers, and Denver Public School administrators. Pre- and post-surveys were completed by 99% of the students enrolled in 4th -6th grade to determine the impact of play equipment circuits, art projects, and increased health awareness. Observational studies highlighted children’s physical activity levels and peer-to-peer social interactions revealing a wide-range of activities and dynamics. Initial research indicates that user perceptions of risk & use of traditional play equipment as part of regular Physical Education classes should be further studied. A need for new playground assessment tools was also identified to address new methods of using play equipment to enhance physical education classes. Spring 2005 Western Engaged Scholar’s Institute Moab, UT Guest Speaker Title: Lessons Learned from Denver’s Community-based Public Elementary School ‘Learning Landscape’ Playgrounds Presented the Learning Landscape Initiative video, syllabi, and general information about this community-based action research initiative.

Personal, narrative poems on the loss and reconstruction of home are interwoven with collective, lyric poems exploring the archaeology of human shelter, nesting instincts in the animal kingdom, and desires for rootedness, connection, and security in an increasingly mobile culture. The collection bears in mind the original root of the wordecology--the Greek oikos, or house. Citation: Burke, Sarah Elizabeth, "Blueprints" (2013). Graduate Theses and Dissertations.

LA 274: The Social & Behavioral Landscape (Spring 2011, 2012, 1013, 2014 - INSTRUCTOR)* This 3 credit course explores social and behavioral factors pertinent to design of domestic, civic, and commercial landscapes. In this course, students focus on design principles as they relate to human behavior and activities. By studying a broad demographic and cultural spectrum of people and applying various principles of design and theories of human behavior, students gain insight into how outdoor spaces and places are used and perceived. Students learn how to observe, map, and document what they see and experience. Some topics covered include: Seeing and Believing – the Power & Limits of Observation; Brief Introduction to Environmental Psychology; Nature and Everyday Landscapes; Place Attachment, Ownership, & Empowerment; Sense of Place & Placelessness; Community-Based Design; Race, Culture, & Place; Proxemics & Territoriality; ADA and Universal Design. Student projects vary and require active student participation. This course is open to all students across campus and does not have any prerequisites.

Students develop half-acre to hundred-acre landscape design and architecture proposals; Apply critical methodological frameworks to shape site systems while providing appropriate support for diverse user groups and creating culturally meaningful places; Assess and interpret strategies for infrastructure and natural systems. Development of a critical design process is stressed. Urban agriculture, community gathering places, civic venues, and transportation have been primary generators for student designs. This is a service-learning course focused on creating relationships to enhance mutual respect and understanding within these two disciplines for future partnerships. (Enrollment roughly 40 LA students with two LA faculty; ARCH enrollment roughly 80 students with 5-6 ARCH faculty) LA 301: Site Design II (Fall 2012, 2013 – INSTRUCTOR)* This 6 credit course builds upon previous studios and technical courses and emphasizes site design and planning at macro-, meso-, and micro-scales. In this course development of half-acre to hundred-acre landscape design and planning proposals are developed. Apply critical methodological frameworks to shape site systems while providing appropriate support for diverse user groups and creating culturally meaningful places. Assess and interpret a program of use, organize subjective and objective site inventory and analysis, develop functional and poetic design strategies for infrastructure and natural systems, and craft artistic and functionally explicit landscape architectural proposals. Further exploration, refinement, and development of appropriate technique and high level of craft in representations to support design thinking process and final scheme presentation build upon other courses and skills. (Prerequisite LA 202: Site Design I. Enrollment typically ranges from 35-43 students including MLA graduate students) Bambi_L_Yost@yahoo.com 720.217.2871 c. 3/19/2014 Page 23 of 37

Peer-to-peer learning and service-learning are key components of this class. Students are encouraged to explore personal areas of interest and to expand specific knowledge as desired. This course is designed to promote self-understanding and growth as well as to emphasize the importance of process and reflection. Guest speakers, drawing charrettes, sketchbooks, and outside examples of analog, digital, and hybrid drawings and models are explored. In addition, some video work, incorporating mixed-media, is also required. (Enrollment capped at 35) DSN S 446/546: Interdisciplinary Option Design Studio - Poetry of Place, Earthworks, and Revelations (Spring 2011, 2013 - INSTRUCTOR)* This 6 credit studio challenges student perceptions about land, art, design, earthworks, environmental ethics, and landscape architecture through a variety of readings, discussions, and projects.
