International Conference Workshops & Presentations




Workshops provide a time to present our collective resources and knowledge to elevate and advocate for EE. The value of sharing what you know through a workshop or professional development intensive can have a far-reaching impact. Because of the collaborative nature of our field, presenters find that through the process of sharing their expertise they gain new insights themselves. Being a presenter is also an excellent way to build your professional résumé and speaker profile. 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. 

This year, our theme is "Common Roots, Many Branches". Individually, we branch out with our varied backgrounds and experiences across a variety of disciplines and settings. Collectively, we unite through our roots of our belief in the power of Experiential Education. To honor our common roots and embrace our many branches, we will be seeking workshops from a wide variety of topics such as: Outdoor and Adventure Education, Therapeutic Adventure, Classroom Education, Higher Education, Experience-Based Training and Development, Experience-Based Training and Development, COVID-19, Risk Management / Safety, or General Audiences.

Our 2021 Virtual Conference Call for Workshop Proposals will open soon


Extended Education sessions take place prior to or after the start of the conference, and are in-depth workshops and activities that provide an expanded opportunity for professional development. Extended Education workshops and activities are designed to provide individuals with an opportunity to enhance their Conference experience.

During the conference, there will be networking time that will also include opportunities for those who wish to present information on research, programs, and ideas in the form of a poster presentation.  Presenters will prepare their poster in advance and answer questions, provide information, and offer follow-up opportunities for those who are interested.
