ISEEN Programs

ISEEN Online
What originally started as a quick pivot in response to the Covid-19 crisis in the Spring of 2020 to keep the ISEEN network connected and supported, has turned into a full slate of monthly online offerings. Since its inception ISEEN Online has been a meaningful touchpoint for committed educators to share resources, seek advice and be supported in the important work of creating meaningful experiences for students.  ISEEN Online offers fee-based programming for members and non-members on topics relevant to the vast array of experiential programming happening across independent schools.  In addition to instructional programming, ISEEN online will offer membership in a variety of Professional Affinity Groups (PAG) to foster intentional networking among experiential education professionals.  These PAG’s have emerged as one of the most powerful silver-linings of the pandemic. Members have raved about the importance of regularly scheduled connection with colleagues.  The exchange of ideas, generation of new ideas and ongoing professional support has been invaluable.

Winter Institute
Established in 2005, the Winter Institute is specifically geared to those working within independent school experiential education programs (outdoor/adventure education, global education, service learning, student leadership, and sustainability programs) and school leaders. The Institute provides the opportunity to gather and discuss topics relevant to our programs, our schools, and our future.

Summer Teacher Institute
Established in 2015, the "Summer Teacher Institute: Experiential Education Pedagogy and Practice” is designed for independent school classroom teachers. The Institute provides an understanding of how experiential education pedagogy and practice can help enhance their academic curricula and classrooms

Regional Expeditions
Regional expeditions launched in 2018 as smaller, more intimate opportunities for experiential educators to immerse themselves within a model experiential education program and connect with other experiential educators in the region.
