Invitation To Present
The AECT International Convention supports our efforts to improve ourselves by bringing together participants from around the world who offer practical applications, high quality research, hands-on workshops, and demonstrations of innovative approaches and developments in learning, instructional and performance technologies. You are invited to present at the 2011 AECT International Convention in Jacksonville, Florida. Share your expertise and knowledge with your peers, with those new to the field, and with professional practitioners and researchers representing multiple disciplines.
This year's convention theme is Celebrate 3.0: Design.Learn.Community. The rapid evolution of Web 2.0 technologies has generated a level of communication and interaction never before possible. In response, AECT 2011 seeks to explore the transformational potential that these innovations hold for education, as well as share current research and best practices related to these developments.
In keeping with the conference premise, proposals may be submitted that feature the use of advanced information and communications technologies for remote presentation through a special track for Second Life. More traditional proposals that present findings and discuss important developments in research and practice are also welcome.
Proposals Open - December 15, 2011
Proposals Close - February 15th, midnight (EST), 2011
The review process by divisions and affiliates will be completed within six weeks of the closing date for proposals. Check with division and affiliate leaders with regard to their specific interests and review processes.
All proposals must be submitted electronically (see Proposal Submission Process, below) to one primary AECT division or affiliated organization for consideration. Guidelines and principles posted at www.aect.org will assist in preparing proposals for submission. Presenters are expected to follow the AECT Code of Ethics, available at http://www.aect.org/About/Ethics.asp.
Proposals are peer-reviewed in a blind review process. See the Division/Affiliate links on the AECT.ORG website for further information on proposal requirements. You will receive electronic notification that your proposal has been received and, at the appropriate time, whether it has been accepted for the program. Proposals will be reviewed using the following criteria:
- Clarity of the proposal and the quality of writing.
- Quality of proposed session's content, organization and format.
- Relevance, timeliness, and general interest level of the topic.
- Match to the convention's focus and other demands of the program.
- Suitability for division/affiliate or organization mission and membership.
- Length and session type including appropriateness for needs of the convention program.
- Level of interactivity with audience. Discussion and topic-related activities are encouraged as an important element of this year's presentations
