Experiential Educators' Conference

Imagine getting to be the student for a day and exploring all the wonderful programming you can bring back to school, to enhance your experiential learning programs. Past conference activities in an urban environment have included cooking classes with Syrian refugees. Or, for outdoor education components, educators earn about “forest bathing” or fire building and other “risky play,” opportunities to help reduce kids’ anxiety. Experiential educators make connections with like-minded colleagues, bounce ideas and experience a showcase of program ideas for other member schools.


Experiential Educators Network News

Place-based education differs from classroom-based education in that it understands students' local community as one of the primary resources of learning ... the unique history, environment, culture, economy, literature, and art ... that is, in students' own "place."
