About ISEEN Membership:

The Independent Schools Experiential Education Network (ISEEN) was founded in 2005 as an international learning laboratory and networking opportunity through which independent school experiential educators and administrators can share their program challenges and successes, learn of and from model programs, and explore the developing role of experiential practices within our educational communities. This is accomplished through attendance at annual institutes, participation in social media platforms, and through a robust membership model. Membership debuted in July of 2015 as a way to meet the requests of our constituents for improved networking, ongoing connections, and resource sharing with fellow experiential educators around the globe.

 

Who Can Join:

ISEEN membership is open to all educators interested in and connected to independent school experiential education. This includes experiential educators, independent school teachers, program directors, and administrators, as well as industry experts, and committed educators who work with independent schools through third party organizations. Note: Individuals or organizations whose business includes, or might include, the selling of services to independent schools will not be permitted to promote their services or organization through ISEEN membership. All individuals/organizations must understand that their role as an ISEEN member will be that of a fellow educator, and their membership will be terminated, should this expectation be violated.
