Who should take this courseThis is an advanced course for directors and project managers who are chargedwith managing charrettes or who may hire a consultant to conduct a charrette. The training focuses on the nuts-and-bolts tools needed for managing a multiple-daycharrette.
New in October, 2014, this training will include a high-tech module by PlaceMatters, a Denver-based non-profit think tank for new technologies in civic engagement and process in planning. This module will cover touch tables, digital flip charts and keypad polling for public meetings. We will also include use of social media and web-based participation along with traditional methods for achieving public involvement equity.
The purpose of this training is to teach the detailed tools and techniques for managing a multiple-day, NCI charrette event. The training tracks the roles, responsibilities and strategies of the charrette manager throughout a multiple-day charrette. Students are provided with a set of invaluable daily task lists for setting up and maintaining the charrette studio and managing the complicated charrette production process. Management exercises include studio floor plan and equipment organization, alternative project plan assessment and synthesis, and charrette resources management. A highlight of the course is the public meeting facilitation role-playing exercise in which students practice their skills at running a dicey public meeting.
