Social Activities

Learning is a social activity and Constructing Modern Knowledge offers numerous opportunities to learn inside and outside of the classroom. In addition to socializing with your fellow attendees and faculty over meals or informal chats, exciting social events are being held at this year’s event, including an educational presentation and evening to explore Boston.

Institute Dinner
Included in each registration!

Institute attendees will have the opportunity to nourish their stomachs and their souls over dinner with your new colleagues and Constructing Modern Knowledge faculty.

This year’s Tuesday night dinner will be quite exciting! The institute dinner will be at Gaucho’s Churrascaria (Brazilian Steakhouse) where the dinner itself is a rich activity. Dinner begins with an enormous salad bar full of fresh fruits, vegetables, Brazilian salads and other culinary surprises. Then side dishes of plantains, papa criolla (baby yellow potatoes), yucca, black beans, and rice are accompanied by a dozen grilled meats, fish and poultry sliced right onto your plate until you say, “Uncle,” or turn your card from the green side to the red side – at least until you get your second (or third or fourth) wind!

Vegetarians will be well-catered for.

Additional tickets for friends and family may be purchased along with your institute registration.

Berklee College of Music to Host Our Boston Reception!

Big Night Out in the City – Boston
Bus transportation and reception included in each registration!

Wednesday afternoon at 3 PM you will have earned a well-deserved break from working on your learning adventures. That’s why we will board a bus and head for Boston, one of the world’s great cities for a night on the town.

The evening in the big city will begin with an educational event at the world famous Berklee College of Music in Boston’s historic Back Bay.

After that, the night is yours. Explore the Freedom Trail, have a great dinner, go dancing, visit museums, take in a show, shop, ride a duck, people-watch, or do all of the above with fellow educators. Meals and other activities are at your own expense, but lots of advice and materials will be shared to help you maximize your evening hours in Beantown.

Additional bus tickets for friends and family may be purchased along with your institute registration.
