European Urban Models/American Urban Realities
Summer Institute for K-16 Teachers
July 5-9, 2004
This institute will examine assumptions and realities about European urban life (using Amsterdam, London, and Munich as touchstones). It will contrast these with assumptions and realities about U.S. urban life, using the Twin Cities as a laboratory. Among the many potential topics are: the scale of the urban landscape; how urban land is used; the social/ethnic/racial complexion of cities and metro areas; aspects of the cultural landscape (parks, arts facilities, shopping, recreation). The object will be to achieve an understanding of the complexity of urban life and urban culture in the early 21st century, as expressed in quite different parts of the developed world. Professor Judith Martin, from the Geography Department at the University of Minnesota, teaches the course. Participants have the option to register for Professional credits. CEU's are included.
For Whom: K-12 and community college educators. Enrollment is limited to 30 participants.
When: July 5-9, 2004, 9:00-4:00 p.m. each day
Where: West Bank of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Scholarships: A $60 scholarship is available to all registered teachers who participate in this Institute. Scholarships will be mailed after the Institute
Lodging Scholarships: Five full scholarships are available to participants traveling from out-state or outside Minnesota for lodging and daily parking on a first come, first-serve basis. On campus lodging is in a single dorm room with air conditioning and shared bathrooms close to the Institutes. Participants check in on Sunday and check out on Friday by noon.
Registration: Registration is $125 for the non-credit course. Registration/tuition covers the cost of faculty instruction, guest speakers, and a continental breakfast. Participants are responsible for textbooks, travel and some meals. Participants have the option to register for professional credit. Tuition is approximately $292 per credit, plus registration fees. If you request professional credit, you will receive an additional billing from the University of Minnesota for the credits. Registration is due June 1, 2004.
