A Day of ACE
A Day of ACE offers an opportunity for a team of thought leaders to gain a deep understanding of ACE. Experiential activities introduce participants to ACE curriculum and pedagogy and provide takeaways for the classroom. Emerging ACE research in the affective domain connects students’ lives to academia through a sociocultural framework. After a networking lunch, teams discuss next steps in creating equitable success models customized for their students and programs. Graduates are encouraged to attend ACE’s Five-Day Experiential Learning Institute offered throughout the country during the summer.
This professional development workshop is open to faculty, staff and administrators of secondary and post-secondary institutions who want to learn more about ACE and have an opportunity to taste the ACE experiential environment. The cost of attendance is $30, which covers a catered light breakfast, snacks and a warm lunch.
