Study Abroad Workshop
Architecture + the Global Experience in the 21st Century

Wednesday, March 20, 2013. 8:00am - 7:00pm (including reception)

Since its roots with the Grand Tour and the Paris Prize, architectural education has valued study abroad.  With the profession becoming increasingly multinational and the world becoming “hot, flat and crowded,” it is worth critically considering the presumptions and practices of global educational experiences that prepare students for the 21st century. This one-day workshop is designed to facilitate active engagement by participants to develop innovative proposals for their home institutions.  Presenters will include: Jeff Risom (Gehl & Associates), Clark Llewellyn (Dean, Hawaii), Peter Laurence (Clemson) and Guillermo Vasquez De Velasco (Dean, Ball State).  We suggest programs consider sending teams of two to collaborate in this process. A requirement is to develop a poster prior to the workshop that describes their initial thoughts on this issue (greater instructions will be provided after registration for the session). Earn CES credits and share the value of global educational experiences.
