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.
