AECT RTD Webinar [Wed. March 8 at 4pm EST]

As I know that many of the K-12 distance, online and blended learning practitioners that follow this space are also graduate students who are completing their Master’s or doctoral studies, I wanted to share notice of this webinar that may be of interest to those folks (and the few academics that follow this space as well).

You are invited attend this FREE webinar:

From the inbox earlier today (I suspect this may be a slower blogging week, at least it is starting out like that).

NEWS&NOTESThe purpose of each weekly issue is to provide information and to engage members in the diverse opportunities and activities of your association.

NOTE THE EARLY MARCH DEADLINES

INTERNET RULES IN THE NEWS. Questions about future Internet rules have been popping up in the news recently. AECT published a policy brief on “Net Neutrality” in 2015. Now would be a good time to review it and other AECT policy briefs.

CALL FOR NOMINATIONS. AECT members are invited to submit a nomination for the office of President-Elect. The individual elected in January 2018 will serve as President-Elect (2018-19), President (2019-20), and Immediate Past President (2020-21). For a detailed description see the Call for Nominations on the AECT website. Nominations must be submitted to Kay Persichitte (chair of the Nominations Committee) at kpersi@uwyo.edu no later than March 1, 2017.

SUMMER SYMPOSIUM TAKING SHAPE. A symposium is planned to allow interested writers to participate in a peer-review process related to submissions to the new Journal of Formative Design in Learning. The journal has issued a call for papers, with a deadline for abstracts of March 3, 2017. The symposium will be held in Jacksonville, Florida, July 22-23, in conjunction with the AECT Summer Leadership Meeting. Details can be found on the AECT website.

MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT. Be sure to take an active role in shaping the future ofyour professional association. The voting period for AECT and Division elections continues. Check your email for balloting details.

PROCEEDINGS HOT OFF THE PRESS. The proceedings of the 2016 AECT International Convention in Las Vegas are now available in two volumes. Research and development topics compose the first volume; instruction and training the second. Members can access the digital publications on the AECT website. Take advantage of this member benefit—and access proceeding from previous annual conventions as well.
