NSEE Spring Free Webinars for Experiential Educators: Managing through COVID-19 – Apr 17

Posted by National Society for Experiential Education on April 14, 2020

During this global pandemic, institutions are grappling with moving education online, including experiential education. The National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE) will continue our tradition of offering free professional development webinars and resources to any experiential educators, regardless of membership status with the society.

During this semester, NSEE will provide a series of five free webinars that allow space for crowd-sourcing knowledge: We know that now is that time for us to learn from and plan with one another. Please join us to share your struggles, thoughts, needs, and plans for the future.

In the first session held on April 10, NSEE’s President and President Elect hosted an interactive discussion with attendees to identify and crowdsource responses to pressing needs arising for experiential educators as a result of the global pandemic.

The remaining webinar sessions are:
