From yesterday’s inbox… There may be a few things of interest to reachers (particularly the conferences for my academic readers).
July 11th, 2016
SUMMER SYMPOSIUM.The Summer Research Symposium is coming up soon and it’s an event not to be missed. “Educational Technology and Narrative: Story and Instructional Design” is the theme. Plan now to be in Bloomington, Indiana, July 20-21, 2016, for this important AECT leadership event.
CALL FOR PAPERS FOR HONG KONG. The HKAECT-AECT 2017 Summer International Research Symposium will be held at the University of Hong Kong in June 2017. Organizers are inviting papers. See http://www.hkaect.org/hkaect-aect-2017/ for details.
PROCEEDINGS SUBMISSIONS SOUGHT. All sessions accepted for presentation at the AECT International Convention are eligible for consideration for publication in the Proceedings. Proceedings submissions are due by September 30, 2016, to: Michael R. Simonson, Editor. See the website for details and contact information.
MAJOR REFERENCE WORK. The AECT-Springer Online Major Reference Work (MRW) offers theorists, researchers, and practitioners a unique opportunity to publish articles of substance in a “living” forum with the capacity to include interactive elements and to make ongoing modifications as new information emerges. Review the Call for Authors and consider developing a submission.
POLICIES AND INFORMATION. “A Manual of AECT Association Policies & Other Helpful Information” was updated in April this year. If you haven’t yet read it, take a look. There truly is a wealth of information in its pages, and the manual can be downloaded (and printed) for added convenience. You’ll find it under Documents on the AECT website.
Bookmark the AECT website and make it your go-to place for information about your professional association. Check in often. There’s always something new!
