Time Frame and Agenda
Each 5-day workshop begins promptly at 8 am daily, Monday-Friday. The morning session runs 8:00-11:30 am and the afternoon session runs 1:30-5:00 pm. If you are in both the morning and afternoon sessions the midday break will be long enough to eat lunch out or you can enjoy the campus setting if you bring your own meal. Feel free to bring snacks and a water bottle. In order to account for traffic to the airport, please schedule departing flights no sooner than 3 pm from Asheville (AVL), 4 pm from Greenville-Spartanburg (GSP), 5 pm from Charlotte (CLT), and 6 pm from Atlanta (ATL).
Summer Workshop Agendas for 2023
Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) is a 15-minute taxi/Lyft/Uber ride to downtown. The closest international airports are Greenville-Spartanburg, SC (GSP is 1 hour from Asheville); Charlotte, NC (CLT is 2 hours from Asheville); and Atlanta, GA (ATL is 3.5 hours from Asheville).
Tuition is $700 per week for either the morning session or the afternoon session and includes workshop materials, up to 40 hours of Continuing Education Credits, and lesson plans for activities covered in the workshop. If you are enrolled in a degree program, I am happy to help you earn graduate credit. If you are attending both sessions the tuition for each session will be discounted 10% ($1260 for both sessions).
It is recommended that you bring a laptop, a scientific calculator, and the materials you may want access to for planning your courses. Bring clothes for comfort indoors when moving about the air-conditioned room, and for the warm, sunny, or rainy weather, we are likely to experience during outdoor activities.
Summer Workshops will be held at the University of North Carolina Asheville. Restaurants and shops are accessible using the free shuttle from downtown to campus, Uber/Lyft, or by carpooling with other participants. I recommend staying downtown to enjoy the bustling nightlife and numerous events that occur there each evening. However, the town is not large so it is a short drive to find hiking trails, go tubing down the French Broad River, listen to live music, or visit the breweries, Biltmore House, Folk Art Center, Brevard Music Center, or other locations nearby.
