[AECT] 2016 International Convention

Note that the AECT’s Division of School Library Media has a real K-12 online learning focus these days…

My Convention Success Story!
AECT Member Since 2009
Hearing Kay Persichitte, now AECT President, talk about moving from high school teacher to higher education faculty was pure chance. I was a graduate student. She was Dean of the University of Wyoming’s College of Education, where I had applied for a position. We chatted about a presentation I was to give later. She came to hear me and we talked again. Now I’m a faculty member at UW, forever grateful for the encounter that became an opportunity.
The International Convention Provides Outstanding Presentations
Designing for Human Learning in the Anthropocene

How do we design for learning in the Anthropocene, the epoch that commenced when human activity began to have a significant effect on our global ecosystem? Emerging scientific literature suggests that we cannot continue “business as usual.” Something is wrong with the relationship between us and our planetary environment. What must we, as a design community, do differently to make humans change their behavior? We need a new vision of what it means to learn, which has implications for how we conceive designs for learning.

Networking, Collaboration, and Engagement Opportunities

$85 per night room charge (the lowest AECT convention hotel rate in decades). Flying to Vegas remains amazingly inexpensive from most destinations around the world. Zero “resort fees” – a savings of 25% on your AECT hotel room charge.
