Workshops

  • 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. Detailed workshop schedule coming in August.
  • The call for workshops, pre-conferences, posters and research presentations has closed as of May 6.
  • A selection of workshops will be available for Hybrid/Virtual attendees to attend live. Please note that not all workshops and events will be streamed live or be recorded for Hybrid/Virtual attendees. As always, larger keynotes and events will be streamed live and the recordings made available on our YouTube Channel!

Keynotes

  • 2022 Marks 10 years of ActivatEE! Call for ActivatEE submissions open until July 5. We can’t wait to hear more powerful stories from the community. ActivatEE is designed to facilitate the process of creating one’s story, inspiring the use of one’s voice, and launching an idea - all on stage during a conference keynote. Each year at our International Conference, a small handful of individuals take the stage and share their stories. ActivatEE has quickly become one of the most highly anticipated and attended traditions at AEE Conferences.
  • The Ewald and Hahn Address is presented annually by a person designated by the Board of Directors who has contributed to the development and advancement of experiential education with the tenacity and conviction exemplified by Marina Ewald and Kurt Hahn.

Virtual/Hybrid 

  • A selection of workshops will be available for Hybrid/Virtual attendees to attend live. Please note that not all workshops and events will be streamed live or be recorded for Hybrid/Virtual attendees. As always, larger keynotes and events will be streamed live and the recordings made available on our YouTube Channel!
  • Gather.Town will be utilized again this year! Connect with old friends, discover new connections, and have fun in our virtual video-calling Gather Community! Gather is a virtual video-calling experience designed to help attendees gather online.

Pre-Conferences

  • Pre-Conferences will occur between Monday, November 7 - Wednesday, November 9
  • Pre-Conference sessions take place prior to the start of the conference, and are in-depth workshops and activities that provide an expanded opportunity for professional development.

Events & Special Programming

  • The Symposium on Experiential Education Research (SEER) provides an outlet and venue for researchers in the field of experiential education to present, share, dialogue, and further devlop their research ideas each year at the AEE International Conference. 

    The symposium will consist of live in person or hybrid (virtual) presentations (15 minutes to present/ 5 minutes of questions). The presentations will be grouped according to themes. The sessions will offer a virtual zoom option as well for both virtual presenters and attendees. There will also be a poster session at this year’s SEER.

  • AEE Awards recognize individuals and organizations for their contributions to the theory of experiential education and their service to AEE. As conceived by AEE's Board of Directors, the awards process is driven by AEE members.
