What a great course. From the broad (terminology and theory), down to the narrow ( specific approaches and methods). And it was all very applicable and real-life. Thanks to the wonderful instructors. I wish I could have been in a classroom with you all.
Please note that not all of the compulsory readings seemed to be immediately available, even for purchase. It would have been great if all the compulsory readings were packaged or collated and available for a fee. Also, I have been waiting 2 weeks for peer review of my final submission.

Excellent lectures and reading prompts. Particularly, the final assignment at the end taught me a lot. The only minus point is for the scheduling of the final assignment along with a full last learning week. I hope that this will be changed in the future because it was too much work load.

This course is designed in a simplest possible way to be delivered to people who may not have expert knowledge in the field.

Quite theoretical and I had expected more 'African' into the course: the African lecturers were very limited and only Kampala was used as an example, apart from some literature but mainly using Durban. But still a useful course to get 'all ducks in a row'. I also expressed caution in using the multi-criteria analysis tool in the final exercise in the way it is designed. I received certificate but do not manage to see what the peer reviewers said about the submission. Is that the intention?

Not a bad course if it was named planning for climate change in urban environments.
It does not address the issues related to African cities in particular.
Furthermore, it is an entry level / beginner course. Not intermediary.
