An opportunity for faculty with prior City as Text™ experience (through a CAT Institute) to engage in an intensive exploration of Boston prior to the 2018 National Conference. Home to some of the oldest public spaces in the country, Boston offers participants the opportunity to explore urban and coastal sites that have been re-purposed for contemporary use. Attendees will engage in site-based experiential learning and take home a deeper understanding of City as Text™ principles, strategies, and writing assignments, as well as developed ideas for course and program applications.
Participants will engage in direct observation, discussions, interviews, writing assignments, and mapping exercises. The Master Class will culminate with an opportunity for participants to design assignments to be used during the City as Text™ session at the National Conference on Thursday, including the chance to facilitate and debrief a group heading to that destination.
