2020 AECT CONVENTION SCHOLARSHIP FUND

During this very difficult time of the COVID-19 pandemic, many institutions are seeing their budgets cut severely. Both in the U.S. and around the world, these reductions have forced institutions to reduce salaries, to freeze research funding, and to do away with travel subsidies. This dire reality has made it difficult for some of our members to pay for the registration fee in order to attend this years convention. Therefore, we are asking those who are able to do so to donate to the “2020 AECT Scholarship Fund” that will enable those AECT members facing financial challenges to attend this years conference. This fund has been approved by the AECT Board of Directors.

Thank you in advance for your help. Any amount you can give will be greatly appreciated both by the recipients and by the entire AECT community.

Please Click Here to Make Your Donation .

AECT 2020 VIRTUAL CONVENTION: LAST CALL FOR PROPOSALS

Theme: Towards Culturally-situated Learning Design and Research
Submission Deadline: July 12, 2020

AECT 2020 Virtual Convention is putting out the last call for proposals that are aligned with the theme Towards culturally-situated learning design and research. This last call is based on the following considerations in response to the suggestions of some AECT members:

  • Since this years convention is going online, there may be members or non-members who had not planned to attend the in-person AECT convention due to various reasons but may have changed their mind and wanted to submit a proposal to attend the virtual conference;
  • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there may be some timely and emerging research to address education in emergent situations; and
  • With the online conference, we are able to accept more proposals and offer more sessions.

TECH TRENDS SPECIAL ISSUE

Tech Trends Special Section – Failure and Creative Risk in Technology-Enhanced Learning
Notions of learning through failure have suddenly become incredibly popular, and this phenomenon of celebrating creativity through failure is frequently revered in the tech-center of the world, Silicon Valley. Yet, it is not failure that is being celebrated, but failure of a specific kind: failure that leads to creative solutions that lead to corporate, bottom-line success. These ideas of creative success emerging from failure have also spread into mainstream culture, and through that, into educational discourse.

The full call for proposals can be found here Proposals Due – July 30, 2020.

The 500-1000-word responses are to be submitted to the Editorial Manager by July 31, 2020 . The SI is planned to be published by October 1, 2020.  For more details and to volunteer to be an perspective author, please see to the Google Form https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1DzuhxiP6lYrzrElQfS9EDw-ymwRwbWXL3v0kBsi0K0Y/edit?ts=5edd89bf .
