Stellenbosch University Experiential Education Conference (SUEEC) 2020

Experiential Education as Pedagogy for Social Justice: praxis and practice for shaping 21st century global citizen-leaders.

10-11 November 2020 | Virtual Experience

Every epoch presents decisive moments for humankind. Some more so than others, when the slow pace of change is accelerated, shattering the societal metronome and with it the facades that cushion our collective consciousness. The year 2020 will forever be remembered as a year such as this.

At this historic time of global disruption, the virtual experience of SUEEC will connect global thought-leaders, social justice subject-matter experts, academics, experiential educators, knowledge creators, and researchers in the field of experiential education and social justice within the higher education sector.

SUEEC invites you to be part of this emerging global discourse, as we explore the possibilities of experiential education as pedagogy for social justice for effecting change in times of uncertainty and complexity.

Join us on 10-11 November 2020 by participating and contributing in one or more of the following SUEEC opportunities:
