This was the theme of the Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA) 2015 National Meeting and Conference, hosted by Kansas State University, March 23 – 28, 2015. The call for papers addressing this theme noted: “When we teach, design and serve, we incite change. When we observe change it informs our insight; deepening our understanding, broadening application of acts, processes, representations and the results of creating difference. How do you incite change? How do you change insight? Our CELA 2015 theme and questions might appear dichotomous or formulaic given the conventions of printed text but we perceive the words and ideas as constantly cyclic and representing a single construct rather than opposite sides of the coin.

This document contains accepted, peer-reviewed papers which address the theme: incite Change| Change insight within the teaching, creative inquiry, research, outreach, and practice of landscape architecture, its allied arts and sciences. Each paper presented was reviewed by experts in the respective area of concern and authors of accepted papers worked with the editor to revise and re-submit their manuscripts. The final products of this rigorous, blind, peer review process are presented here. This document represents a beginning, a change in the development of the discourse on creative inquiry within the discipline of landscape architecture. The papers suggest that this discipline may indeed be changing in how it teaches, researches, and serves its students and its larger community of concern. It is our hope that future CELA conferences continue the practice of a “special conference theme publication”. We also hope that the papers presented here change insight, and incite change. The editor and the authors welcome your feedback and inquiries.
