A4LE 2020 East Conference

The Northeast Region, Southeast Region, and Virginia Chapter of the Association for Learning Environments are combining forces in 2020 to bring you A4LE East: Inside the Mind of the Learner.

This three-day conference to be held in April in Washington DC will assemble the best minds up and down the east coast and beyond to study, explore, and discuss school facility planning, design, and operations from the perspective of the students for whom we direct our efforts.

Call for Speakers

Deadline: Friday, January 24, 2020

We will pursue five tracks – social and emotional learning, school safety and security, equity in education, student-centered learning, and redefining academic success – to better understand the impact each has on students within the context of what we do as school planners, designers, builders, and operators. Students, educators, academics, policy makers, school counselors, child psychologists, school planners and designers, builders, building operators, school suppliers, school safety experts, and anyone else with a compelling interest in learning environments are invited to join!

Content experts who can move the needle, raise the bar, and elevate the conversation in new and substantive ways are encouraged to submit their qualifications in response to our call for speakers. Our aim is to provide attendees with content that will lead to new insights and deeper understandings that will resonate long after the conference. Proposed content should be rigorous and valid and should address one of the five learning tracks in a direct and applicable way. Collaborations that include multiple disciplines are appreciated. Student participation is encouraged. Presentations of commercial content will not be considered.
