COLUMBIA, MD, Apr 17, 2020 – To help nurture the professional development of landscape professionals, global design and BIM software provider Vectorworks, Inc. sponsors the launch of the Landscape Institute’s (LI) digital learning platform, LI Campus. As a collection of educational content for landscape professionals, LI Campus will give users immediate access to a wide range of content, incorporating the past three years of LI events, conferences and continuing professional development (CPD) days.
“As a new online service, LI Campus offers a more accessible, inclusive and affordable way of delivering CPD and learning,” said LI chief executive Daniel Cook. “It will give landscape practitioners based in remote or international locations access to all of our latest content. We are already seeing across the sector the rising importance of people skills, digital practice, community engagement, co-design, natural capital, place management, horticulture and parks management. These extend well beyond our traditional fields of practice: landscape architecture, planning, management, science and urban design. LI Campus seeks to be the premier hub for professional development and learning for all these important landscape disciplines.”
The Landscape Institute is the UK chartered body for landscape professionals. It also serves as an educational charity that promotes the art and science of landscape practice. It provides a professional home for all landscape practitioners including landscape scientists, landscape planners, landscape architects, landscape managers and urban designers.
“Vectorworks has been working with the Landscape Institute and providing solutions for landscape design professionals for over 35 years,” said Adrian Slatter, Vectorworks UK director of sales. “The launch of the LI Campus provides a fantastic medium for sharing knowledge and best practice and Vectorworks UK is delighted to be a sponsor of this initiative. Having been involved with the BIM Working group and more latterly with the Digital Working Practice group, we are eager to engage with LI members and community. We hope that this new initiative will help advance awareness of landscape design, including sustainable site design and collaboration to help drive better landscape performance.”
