    Symposium Description

    “Teaching Empathy: As the Empowerment of the Deep Humanity SO Deeply Needed in Our Times” will be a day rich in inspiring ideas and teaching practices, filled with reflective writing and compassionate community!


    To register, become a 2021 member of AEPL (if you are not already a member through a multiple-year membership), and RSVP to by Wednesday, January 6. You will then be sent the Zoom links on the day of the symposium. 

    Remember that this is a great time to become a multiple-year member. On January 8, the rates for these will be going up 50 percent: from $75 to $112.50 for a three-year membership, and from $100 to $150 for a five-year membership.

There are 50 percent discounts available for all membership lengths for students, adjuncts, retirees, and pre-K-12 teachers.
