AEPL’s purpose is:
to encourage research and classroom practices that focus on new conceptions of learning;
AEPL invites participation in its many events, including AEPL’s annual summer conference, JAEPL (the journal for AEPL), the AEPL Newsletter, national convention workshops, panels, and special interest groups at the College Composition and Communication Conference (4Cs) and the National Council of Teachers of English Convention.
