Kyle is a student at Mount St. Mary’s University in Emmitsburg, Maryland. This is his first AEE Conference.
Being my first AEE conference I was not sure what to expect. When I first arrived at the hotel I felt as if I was surrounded for passionate and caring people. They were engaging and extremely positive people– I felt at home right away. The first day of the conference really exposed me to the laid back and welcoming environment of AEE. The interactions I had with others and the tone set of the opening address dissipated qualms that I had with presenting my workshop. The “Technology-Driven Teambuilding” with my co-presenter classmate and fellow first-timer, Mike Neuman started with a less than ideal start, but we quickly adapted to provide to our attendees. We were happy with our first workshop and extremely glad that we could contribute to the experiential education field. I look forward to learning much more from the community over the next few days, and meeting many others. AEE YOU ROCK!!!
