people looking at a projectorWorkshops provide a time to present our collective resources and knowledge to elevate and advocate for Experiential Education. The value of sharing what you know through a workshop or professional development intensive can have a far-reaching impact.

Because of the collaborative nature of our field, presenters find that through the process of sharing their expertise they gain new insights themselves. Being a presenter is also an excellent way to build your professional résumé and speaker profile.

While every annual conference is filled with keynotes, plenary sessions, and other events and activities, workshops are the foundation and the fulcrum from which attendees and presenters alike are able to rejuvenate and sustain momentum in this great work. 

We will be seeking workshops from a wide variety of topics such as: Outdoor and Adventure Education, Therapeutic Adventure, Classroom Education, Higher Education, Experience-Based Training and Development, Risk Management / Safety & more!

Submissions open in late February
