experiencEDU 2019 is scheduled from July 17 to July 19, 2019 at the Hotel at Old Town Conference Center in Wichita, Kansas. Registration until May 15 is $225. After that early bird special, it jumps to $275.

Need a few more details?
Wednesday & Thursday both start with our mini-modules during the morning – each module is 30 minutes long, giving you the chance to sit in a ton of different experiential sessions. We’ll combine some of these (so you see 30, 60, and 90 minute sessions) all designed for you to experience learning from a student’s perspective.
The afternoons on Wednesday & Thursday are structured the same way – 30 minute mini-modules. The difference? Explicit debriefing and guided conversation around your morning experiences. So perhaps you sat in on a Math Station with Renee Smith at 9:30 and experienced learning her Fraction Actions.
During the afternoon, you’d jump into Renee’s session that highlights how to use the station, what the research says, and what to expect with your own students. Experienced PBL as a student in the am? Get the details of how to roll that out yourself in the pm.
experiencEDU continues into Wednesday and Thursday evenings with the chance to play with some fun tech tools & gadgets, maybe a escape room or two, grab some snacks, some free drinks, and some off-site field trips to places like WSU Tech and Exploration Place.
But wait! There’s more. Our final morning on Friday is designed to build on your student experiences that happened during the mornings and your afternoon debrief / explicit learning teacher sessions. Working together with ESSDACK consultants and other session presenters, you’ll get time to begin creating plans for a classroom that will be the difference maker for the future of your students.
As you leave Wichita, you will have loaded your toolbox with start of school ready strategies, resources, and ideas perfect for both small and big picture planning.
Your experiencEDU registration includes Wednesday night’s tech tool reception and Thursday’s field trips. And if you register before May 15, you get the Early Bird special of $225. That’s a $50 discount! (Regular price is $275 and walk-in price is $300.)
So. Ready to start the registration process?
