AEPL invites participation in its many events, including AEPL's annual summer conference, JAEPL (the journal for AEPL), the AEPL Newsletter, national conference workshops, panels, and special interest groups at the College Composition and Communication Conference (4Cs) and the National Council of Teachers of English.
The 2014 Conference Theme is devoted to exploring the language of landscape, place and stillness, and we’ll be venturing forth into some rich discussions and experiences that will provoke and invite us to notice deeply.
The Art of Noticing Deeply—and we believe that it is an art – will be an opportunity to slow down, savour, delight in, and notice the very essence of the world around us.
Jeff Wilhelm and Bruce Novak talk about their new book, the AEPL conference, and the importance of the National Writing Project.
The Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (AEPL), an official assembly of the National Council of Teachers of English, is open to all those interested in exploring the boundaries of teaching and learning beyond traditional disciplines and methodologies. Areas of interest include, but are by no means limited to: aesthetic, emotional, and moral intelligence; archetypes; body wisdom; care in education; creativity; felt sense theory; healing; holistic learning; humanistic and transpersonal psychology; imaging; intuition; kinesthetic knowledge; meditation; narration as knowledge; reflective teaching; silence; spirituality; and visualization.
● to explore research on expanded perspectives on learning and its implications for and applications to English and language arts education;
