  • CEUs (Continuing Education Units) will again be offered through Colorado State University (CSU) Pueblo for the main AEE Conference (not all pre-conferences!).
    • Colorado State University Pueblo in partnership with the AEE is proud to offer attendees of the 2023 AEE International Conference the opportunity to gain Continuing Education Units (CEU) issued under the seal of CSU Pueblo’s Division of Extended Studies. CSU does not have different classifications of CEUs. CSU does not have CMEs or CLEs, and instead has generic education units. CSU transcribes these units on a transcript for participants under the non-credit workshop, CONED 500. These generic education units would be seen as verified on a transcript. 1 CEU is equal to 10 hours of instruction, so the maximum number of CEUs on offer through AEE is 1.2 CEUs for 12 hours.
      The process for obtaining CEUs:
      All attendees will be contacted with an application form after the conference concludes. You'll be able to fill out the application and indicate the sessions you attended. Then CSU will contact you about the CEUs. The university will be closed from December 23rd to January 1st, so all registrations must be submitted by December 15th and all payments made by December 21st
      Thursday, November 2 (3 hours total possible, workshop sessions 1 & 2)
      Friday, November 3 (4.5 hours total possible, workshop sessions 3, 4 & 5)
      Saturday, November 4 (4.5 hours total possible, workshop sessions 6, 7 & 8) 
      3 days, 12 hours total possible maximum

What should I wear?

  • Wear anything that makes you comfortable and happy! Jeans? Yep. Shorts? If you like being a bit chilly! Flannels? Duh. Dresses? Yep! Sneakers? A good idea. Heels? If that’s your thing! Suits? Sure thing. Activewear? Totally. Khakis and Blazers? Hey, why not! If we had to put a label on what to wear, we'd say casual to business casual (emphasis on the casual!).
