Spring 2017

Posted in Posts

This course will be offered Spring 2017, with a trip to Detroit the 3rd week of the term. The cost is penciled in at $700. If the budget runs favorably I pick up more meals “on the road” so as to diminish your out-of-pocket costs.

As in the past, the course is built around on-campus speakers and the Detroit trip. During that week we meet with industry executives and journalists, tour factories and R&D facilities, and otherwise immerse ourselves in the Detroit experience. We used readings tied to both; from your end you will blog and keep a journal. I will update this page as I work out details.

See the 2016 Schedule for the sorts of things we do in Michigan.

  • Week I: Apr 24-28 in Lexington
  • Week II: May 1-5 in Lexington
  • Week III: May 8-12
    • arrive Detroit Sun May 7 evening,
      • could have dinner with people Sunday

      • will plan lunch and/or visit to factory in Ohio en route home

One final note: as we will be off-campus for part of the term, the course is not compatible with taking a PE.
