The Harvard Outward Bound Project and the Experiential Educators’ Network are planning a conference for those interested in learning more about experiential or experience-based education.

The conference, called “The Common Thread,” is scheduled for noon to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, April 5, at the Gutman Conference Center.

The conference, which is free and open to the public, will feature a variety of workshops to give a firsthand look at experiential teaching and learning. It will also feature presentations by primary and secondary school teachers and students about their own experiences with the teaching method.

The conference will end with an Askwith Forum. The forum’s panel will feature Michelle Brantley, experiential educator from Middle College High School, Memphis; Maxine Greene, professor emerita, Teachers College, Columbia University; and Dan Garvey, assistant professor, University of New Hampshire.
