Host ISEEN at Your School

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting proposals for our future events both for the 2021 Winter Institute host site and the events for the 2019-2020 academic year. 

We invite member schools with well-established, innovative and exciting experiential Ed programs to submit by Monday, March 11!

Follow the links to learn about the opportunities and/or submit a proposal.

  • Winter Institute 2021 Proposal — For nearly 15 years, the Winter Institute has been our bread and butter experience that engages experiential ed practitioners and leaders in transformational professional development. This proposal is open to member schools with established and innovative experiential ed programs that want to showcase the amazing work they are doing in their home community.

  • 2020 Winter Institute Pre/Post Workshop Proposals — The time before and after the Winter Institute provides an opportunity for deeper work and reflection on specific topics of interest for educators. Past topics have included purpose learning, risk management, The Mastery Transcript Consortium, place-based learning, and creative tours of the host city.  We invite you to propose workshops for the January 2020 Institute in Portland, Oregon. We encourage submissions to consider the 2020 Institute theme, “Just Communities: Learning and Leading Through Listening to Each Other” which will explore elements of community, justice and the role independent schools have in both.

  • 2019-2020 Regional Expedition Proposals — After a successful inaugural one-day Regional Expedition at Hotchkiss School’s Fairfield Farm, we are excited to continue offering more of these gatherings around North America. We’re aiming to hold at least two Expeditions in different regions (one in the Fall and one in the Spring) during the 2019-2020 academic year. If your school has an innovative experiential education program to showcase and you’d like to welcome around 20 or so participants to immerse themselves in it, you should submit a proposal for a Regional Expedition. ISEEN will help with the entire program.

We are excited to receive and review your proposals. We know that you are all doing incredible work and we look forward to finding ways to involve you in ISEEN’s future programming. If you have any questions at all about hosting ISEEN at your school, please email [email protected].
