Call for Papers: National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE)

43rd Annual Conference
Date: September 29 - October 1, 2014
Submission Date for Papers: January 31st, 2014
Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America

Conference Theme: Civic Engagement and Global Learning for the 21st Century

Experiential education in the 21st century faces a dual challenge: the necessity of staying connected locally while becoming engaged globally. As such, the traditional connotation of civic engagement once rooted mainly in community service, national citizenship and local careers must today embrace the expanded agenda of global learning capable of producing world-conscious graduates and globally informed citizens capable of broad and effective civic engagement at multiple levels.

NSEE has chosen to align the theme of this year's conference to one of the four essential learning outcomes AAC and U has articulated in its LEAP initiative and 2013 Strategic Plan - personal and social responsibility, which in the language of AAC and U includes the following key learning goals:
- Civic knowledge and engagement-local and global
- Intercultural knowledge and competence
- Ethical reasoning and action
- Foundations and skills for lifelong learning.
