About

As experiential educators we often find ourselves shocked by the inertia and unwillingness to change we encounter when introducing innovative programs at our institutions. This workshop will offer strategies and advice about advocating for experiential education and identifying and convincing strategic partners. The workshop is informed by organizational change literature and anecdotal evidence gathered from various educators, administrators, students, and stakeholders.
