90-minute or 3-hour workshops
These workshops serve as an introduction to a topic and open the door to new ideas, new perspectives on existing ideas, and provide time to explore ideas in a unique way.
Professional Development Intensives:
6-hour PDI workshops will take place all day on November 1 during the conference, and are reserved for exploring a topic or theme in depth, allowing for greater knowledge acquisition and application of skills. Take your practice to the next level!
During the conference, there will be networking time that will also include those who wish to present information on research, programs, and ideas in the form of a poster presentation. Presenters will prepare their poster in advance and stand next to it in order to answer questions, provide information, and offer follow-up opportunities for those who are interested.
Posters are meant to be informational. People need to be able to get the information quickly from the poster, so it is suggested that a blend of photos, drawing, graphs, charts, and words be used. Types can include: A description of an innovative program, an analysis of a problem and how you addressed it, or a report of new research as it relates to experiential education.
Organization of the poster is very important. For tips on making an effective poster presentation, please click here.
Physical criteria for Poster Presentations:
* Prepared on sturdy material (so that it can sit on an easel)
* No more than 36” x 45”
* Easy to read from 2 meters (6 feet) away

Preconference workshops and activities are designed to provide individuals with an opportunity to enhance their Conference experience. These workshops take place prior to the start of the conference, and are in-depth workshops and activities that provide an expanded opportunity for professional development and connection with those of similar interest. Pre-conference workshops are generally 1-3 days long, often “fee-based”, and provided by AEE’s Profession-Based and Affiliation Groups, as well as other individuals and organizations.
