2016 AEE North West Pre-Conference
AEE and Inquiry Adventures brings you the 2016 AEE North West Pre-conference. The pre-conference will take place from 10am to 3pm on April 29th.The focus of the pre-conference will be using experiential activities to create a caring and social- emotionally strong classroom or group. This pre-conference would be ideal to classroom teachers, school counsellors, child and youth care workers, 4-H Leaders, and camp leaders. There will be a focus on the experiential models of framing, facilitation, and debriefing. Many of the activities and theories explored will be influenced by Laurie Frank's book "Journey Towards the Caring Classroom." Don't let the word "classroom" fool you, this resource is one of the best experiential social-emotional activity books, for any population or environment, ever written. Come ready to engage, participate, be active, and play in a variety of experiential Social-Emotional Learning activities.
The cost of the conference is $60 USD. You can sign up for the pre-conference at aee.org/northwest. I would highly encourage anyone attending the pre-conference to stay and take advantage of the entire conference. Participating in the conference in its entirety will exposure you to an incredible and diverse community of experiential educators - from adventure therapists to classroom teachers and from outdoor pursuit leaders to corporate team-building facilitators.
See you this Spring in Squamish!
