The Association for Experiential Education (AEE) is a non-profit professional membership association dedicated to experiential education. The community comprises experiential educators, practitioners, inquirers, researchers and students with the shared goal of elevating the field of Experiential Education. It was officially incorporated in 1977 with roots back to 1972.
The association contributes to the experiential education community through organising regional and annual conferences, defining professional standards, providing accreditation to organizations, networking, professional development opportunities and through publications.
AEE Regions play a significant role in AEE by providing opportunities for members in a particular geographic region to learn and grow together. The regional council is made up of experiential educator leaders from countries such as Vietnam, China, India, the Philippines, Australia and New Zealand. The roles of the Regional Council include providing continuity and leadership for the Region; acting as the decision-making body for the Region; accepting both authority and responsibility for decisions, actions and activities and actively supporting AEE’s values, mission, vision and operational goals.
As part of its commitment and efforts to meet AEE’s goals, the AEE Asia Pacific Regional Council proposes to initiate its inaugural regional conference to be hosted in Singapore in 2023 with the next to be hosted in Vietnam in 2024. More information on AEE here.
