LEPE 2018


Leaders of Experiential Project-Based Education Conference

Leaders of Experiential Project-Based Education (LEPE) Conference 2018


Catalysts for Intelligent Action

At the 2018 LEADERS OF EXPERIENTIAL PROJECT-BASED EDUCATION (LEPE) CONFERENCE, educators and professionals from around the world gather in an intimate setting to learn, share insights and have candid conversations about their experiential learning programs. 


Tuesday, June 19 – Thursday, June 21, 2018


Join us in Pittsburgh to discuss the issues that matter most to you and the experiential project-based education community. The 2018 conference offers opportunities to:

  • Engage in strategic conversations, exploring new ideas and unique approaches to project-based learning
  • Meet current challenges through formal and informal networking sessions
  • Learn different perspectives on “what has worked” versus what is still “work-in-progress”

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The conference is for faculty and administrative directors who offer project-based learning to their students.

CONFERENCE FORMAT

The conference takes place over a three-day period and includes a wide variety of plenary sessions, networking opportunities, and featured speakers. Learn from thought leaders in this industry and your LEPE peers.
