AEE Rocky Mountain Regional Conference to be hosted by Prescott College in Prescott, AZ

Call for 50-minute student symposiums, 90-minute workshops and 3 hour extended workshops. We are seeking quality workshops from both professional and student presenters in the field of experiential education.

Prescott College is hosting the Rocky Mountain Regional Conference for the Association of Experiential Education this spring. The conference will be held April 25th and 26th, 2014, at the Prescott College Crossroads Center. The theme for the conference is Experiential Education for a Just World, with an intention to highlight and promote current and successful practices in environmental and social justice as approached through the lenses of research, education, practice and advocacy.
This conference will bring together and engage members of outdoor programs, schools and universities as well as a myriad of educative models. These could include: social justice circles, environmental justice advocates, community organizers, adventure educators, classroom teachers, undergraduate and graduate students, and engaged global citizens. We anticipate richly interdisciplinary participation from our regional audience.
Leading interdisciplinary voices on experiential education will share directly relevant ideas and issues. The keynote speakers, panels, workshops and field-based professional development opportunities will be centered around the potential of bringing justice awareness to experiential educators and their teachings.
Contact email@example.com for more information.
This regional gathering will support a mix of professionally led 90 minute and 3 hour workshops, with a portion of the conference dedicated to a student symposium. The symposium will feature 50 minute student facilitated workshops, providing a tremendous opportunity for less experienced presenters to share their ideas and recent learning. While justice in education is targeted as a common thread for the conference, we hope to see workshop proposals that shed light on a variety of program formats, practices and theoretical underpinnings that improve our teaching and facilitating.
Please watch for more information on registration and conference events to be posted on the Rocky Mountain website.
