Provisional Timetable for CONSTRUIT! meeting C1 (with TPM1)

Thursday 23rd – Tuesday 28th October 2014

Overview of schedule:

The first 24 hours (S1 - S6) is a fairly intensive, immersive, practical engagement with environments for making construals. Friday evening is a more relaxed introduction to the context of making construals at Warwick and the partners, goals and participants of CONSTRUIT!.

Two sessions of the Transnational Project Meeting (TPM), S9 and S13, are joint with C1. Four of the TPM sessions Welcome (S7), Management (S11, S12) and Review (S15) are exclusively for TPM members. The TPM members are the Contact persons named on the Proposal together with Dimitris Alimisis, Meurig and Steve.

The practical sessions of C1 on Saturday, Sunday, Monday will allow participants to follow some suggested themes - or ones of their own choice - individually or in groups, so as to construct something to share and discuss with others on Monday evening (S21). Tuesday morning will be used to review the course and consider how best to disseminate knowledge and skills among partner institutions.

There are drawbacks to the current arrangement, as well as advantages, and it is subject to variation!
