The mission of the NSEE is to cultivate educators who effectively use experiential education as an integral part of personal, professional, civic and global learning.

NSEE Webinar 

How to Increase Faculty Buy-in to Experiential Education  

View Webinar


The interest in and commitment to experiential education among faculty can vary greatly between schools and institutions. This webinar will identify some of the factors and challenges that may restrict, discourage, inhibit, or prohibit the spread of experiential learning among faculty. Then, the webinar will explore strategies on how to increase the discussion, development, and delivery of experiential opportunities by faculty across your departments, schools, and institutions.  

This webinar will include information and tips applicable to various positions and levels, from faculty hoping to expose colleagues to experiential learning, to senior-level leadership aiming to create a culture of experiential education on campus.
