The essay opens with an outline of globalisation, demands it puts on us all, and places my course delivered as visiting scholar in that context. My focus is at diverse ways of thinking, making and living cities, with uniqueness of the course coming from interaction between the participants, as the greatest potential in this kind of teaching and learning is in activating knowledges which they can bring into the class and their freedom to express. While the first part of the course is generic, the second is decidedly contextual, responsive and responsible towards new, largely unknown situations.
