Webinars are a great way to breathe new life and professional development into those months between ASPE annual conferences. A Webinar is a seminar conducted over the Internet using a combination of conference calls and a website, or an online application for meetings. They are usually an hour long and begin with a presentation followed by a discussion between the presenters and attendees. We offer Webinars on a variety of subjects and at a variety of times to make them attractive and available to as many people as possible. All live webinars are free for both members and non-members. Check out our current webinars below, and register today!

Conversations on Leadership & SP Education

SP Education is an exciting but relatively still new field at just over 50 years old. As such, we have some established leaders and great opportunities for new leaders to emerge! The speakers for this webinar represent different disciplines and professional backgrounds, and each entered the field of SP Education at different time points. During the webinar—designed intentionally as an informal conversation—our panelists will discuss their unique journeys to leadership, challenges they encountered along the way, and strategies for overcoming setbacks. Their goal is to share tales from the field and encourage the next generation of ASPE leaders in the field of SP Education and Human Simulation!

Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • REESE’S BOOK CLUB PICK • A timely and important book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, and The Gifts of Imperfection.

“True belonging doesn’t require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.” Social scientist Brené Brown, PhD, MSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives—experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.

Brown argues that we’re experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, “True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that’s rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it’s easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it’s a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It’s a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.” Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, “The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it’s the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.”
