Preservation Leadership Training® TYPES

PLT: Capstone Experience is a place-based training in which participants are immersed in an experiential preservation project. Preservation skill development is guided by the needs of the project.  Participants are selected in a competitive application process that includes preservation skill and knowledge prerequisites.  The capstone experience results in a project report and presentation to the community partner and stakeholders.

PLT: Targeted focuses on a specific homogeneous audience that may include a range of preservation experience and knowledge.  The content and learning objectives are determined by audience needs. There is a strong interactive, networking component. This training type may be delivered in a blended platform (a mix of online and onsite training activities).

PLT: Intensive focuses on specific, high-level, challenging content areas for a heterogeneous audience.  Due to the challenging nature of the content, prerequisites will be in place to ensure that audience members can benefit from the content.  This training type lends itself to an e-learning format.

2018 PLT Trainings

Preservation Leadership Training: Landscape Assessment Workshop
November 13, 2018
Part of PastForward programming in San Francisco, CA

Cultural landscapes are narratives, works of art, and expressions of regional identity. Through studying their forms, patterns, features, and uses, planners can learn much about our evolving relationships with the built environment and natural world. Participants will learn to inventory and document existing conditions of cultural landscapes; determine their period(s) of historic significance; evaluate their integrity by analyzing contributing features and elements; and develop treatment options, including cultural landscape management plans, strategies for their ongoing maintenance, and future research recommendations. This session will use the San Francisco Civic Center’s United Nations Plaza, designed by landscape architect Lawrence Halprin, as a case study.
