AECT D&D Outstanding Book Award

I received this late last week from a colleague in Australia.

I emailed you last year to let you know that I cited your work “Helping to make online learning less isolating” in my book Design of Technology-Enhanced Learning – Integrating Research and Practice. Well, this is just a follow-up to let you know that the book recently won the Association for Educational Communications and Technology Design and Development Outstanding Book Award.

In their awarding statement the five reviewers concluded:

This volume does the best job of pulling together knowledge in the field toward textured but practical guidance. Bower does not overstate what is known or veer into theoretical determinism. The content is excellently grounded in theory and provides excellent examples from practice. It is very well-structured and well-written. Impactful! Faulty could use this as a foundational text in a course for technology for teachers and even for college faculty.

So thanks once again for the excellent contribution that your high quality research made to this volume.

As a result of the award my publisher has decided to reinstate the 30% discount, which is available to you, your library and your students by going to http://bit.ly/DesignOfTEL and typing in the promo code EMERALD30 at checkout. As well, if you are one of the growing number of academics who are deciding that they would like to use the book as the required reading in their undergraduate or postgraduate courses, please let me know so I can provide you with access to the ancillary teaching resources.

So check out this volume that you can now order at a discount.
