A Closer Look at Scheduled Events, Networking Opportunities, and Other Programming:

  • ActivatEE 

    • ActivatEE is a sharing platform designed by AEE members for attendees to participate in during the International Conference. ActivatEE is a developmental process, both for the speaker and the audience, where we share ideas, test assumptions, and are asked to view a perspective through a different lens. It is designed to facilitate the process of creating one’s story, inspiring the use of one’s voice, and launching an idea - all on the virtual stage during a conference keynote. 

  • The Marina Ewald and Kurt Hahn Address

    • Annually, the Board of Directors invites a leader in experiential education who has contributed to the development and advancement of experiential education to present the Marina Ewald and Kurt Hahn Address.  

  • Collaborate Sessions 

    • We will provide spaces and time for you to make meaningful connections and chat with smaller groups while at the AEE conference. To help facilitate these links between attendees, we have developed Collaborate Sessions in which individuals who share like-minded ethos can come together for facilitated conversations and sharing. Possible session themes include LGBTQ+, BIPOC, Therapeutic, Women Professionals, Outdoor/Wilderness Programs, K-12 Education, Higher Education, Emerging Professionals/Students, Nonprofits, Training and Development Professionals, Accessibility, Environment/Sustainability. *categories subject to change!

  • The Symposium on Experiential Education Research (SEER) 

    • 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 develop their ideas. The symposium involves the presentation of research papers from leading international scholars in the field of experiential education.  The Submission Window Has Closed.

  • Workshops / Education Sessions 

    • Workshops are the foundation and the fulcrum from which attendees and presenters alike are able to rejuvenate and sustain momentum in this great work. They provide a time to present our collective resources and knowledge to elevate and advocate for EE. Presentations are rigorously reviewed and evaluated, as we strive to make sure our workshops are the most informative, innovative and entertaining in our industry. Register for sessions, build your personal agenda, and connect virtually with speakers and attendees alike. Did you know? ALL live workshops, sessions, and keynotes will be recorded! Have a conflict during a session? No problem, you'll be able to access all recordings on-demand in the conference platform after the conference concludes. The Submission Window Has Closed. 

  • Poster Presentations 

    • We provide the opportunity for those who wish to present information on research, programs, and ideas to do so in the form of a virtual poster presentation. Presenters will prepare their presentation in advance and have opportunities to answer questions, provide information, and offer follow-up opportunities for those who are interested. The Submission Window Has Closed.

    • Colorado State University-Pueblo in partnership with the AEE is proud to offer attendees of the 2020 AEE International Conference the opportunity to gain Continuing Education Units (CEU) issued under the seal of CSU–Pueblo’s Division of Extended Studies.
