2015 ASLE Conference Seminars & Workshops

At our upcoming 2015 Biennial Conference in Idaho, ASLE will hold eight workshops and seminars on important and emerging topics that reflect the diversity of our approaches and our membership.  Six pre-conference seminars and workshops will be held on Tuesday, June 23 and two mid-conference workshops offered on Friday, June 26, at the same time as the field trips. The cost is $15, payable during online registration. Each will be limited to 15 participants.  Due to limited spaces, you must pre-register for these events!

Advance registration is open now, and will close April 15 (or when full, whichever is earlier).
