2019 Institute Schedule

Constructing Modern Knowledge 2019 begins at 9 AM on July 16th at the Doubletree by Hilton Manchester Downtown Hotel. Registration begins at 8:30 AM. PLEASE DO NOT COME EARLY. We will be working until the last minute to make the magic happen.

CMK 2019 ends at 4:00 PM on Friday, July 19th. The institute culminates with project sharing and reflection activities. We understand if you need to leave early to catch flights, but the entire experience is worthwhile. The Manchester Airport is 15 minutes from CMK and you may arrive 45-60 minutes prior to your flight. Boston (Logan) Airport is an hour away. See this page for bus, shuttle, air, and hotel info.

Flexibility is a hallmark of Constructing Modern Knowledge. Times will change.
