Uncovering Dallas: City as Text™ Master Class

October 30 - November 1, 2022
Registration Deadline: August 31, 2022

Registration Now Open

An opportunity for faculty with prior City as Text™ experience (through an NCHC Faculty Institute or its National Conference) to engage in an intensive exploration of Dallas prior to the 2022 National Conference. One of the largest and most populated urban areas in America, Dallas has, in the last several decades, reimagined and reconstructed itself and its spaces. With attention to culture, arts, history, and urban design, participants will explore downtown, Deep Ellum, the Design District and everything in between to discover Dallas in the 21st century. Participants will engage in the principles of site-based experiential learning with the intent of taking home a deeper understanding of City as Text™ principles as well as developed ideas for course- and program-level 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.
