Revitalization and urban renewal course was established at Faculty of Architecture in Politechnika Śląska (Silesian University of Technology) as a new course in academic year 2008-2009. Previously problems of that matter were presented fragmentally within the courses of Urban Design and Planning, Architectural Design, Monument Preservation and Urban Renewal. That situation resulted in specifi c misunderstanding. Students understood revitalization mainly as a spatial reconstruction or renewal of urban or architectural degradated objects. In that sense the main goal seemed to be gained by pure spatial act. New course is intended to show revitalization as interdisciplinary, long-term process. Operational aspects of executing this process are strongly stressed in the program of new course. The main didactic objective is to provide necessary knowledge and improve students ability and skills of urban space diagnosing, formulating aims, tasks and actions programming. One of those actions is renewal of urban space elements, treated as a tool of urban revitalization process.
