Interactive Planning Game
This is the first 'fit for purpose' teaching and learning tool for regional and urban planning. It brings together two successful Engage Research projects: the board game 'Design your ultimate suburb' and an interactive mapping table. The resulting 'serious' game provides skills and attributes to interpret and engage with the multidisciplinary nature of regional and urban planning.

An interactive, multi-touch table allowed students to simultaneously collaborate on the application of spatial planning principles to deliver sustainable urban and regional communities. Students could learn about economic, environmental, and social parameters and interactions, which are central to the development of modern communities.
