4-3-2-1 It is not too late to submit to AECT 2013

Posted By Lara M. Luetkehans, Tuesday, February 12, 2013
TED Members and Friends,

It is not too late to submit a proposal for the 2013 AECT International Convention in Anaheim!

October 29-November 2, 2013

Innovate! Integrate! Communicate!

http://www.aect.org/newsite/

We encourage the following types of proposals.

Research Proposals: Accepted proposals present completed original research related to the use of technology, instructional design and development, or instructional/learning theory in teacher education programs, K-12 schools, or teacher professional development. Qualitative, quantitative, or mixed method empirical studies should describe research that involved data collection or a meta-analysis. You are encouraged to share examples of your findings and to engage audience members in a discussion of what this new knowledge means to the field and their own scholarly agenda. If accepted, the authors will be encouraged to submit their papers to the Conference Proceedings.

Instructional Practices Proposals: Presentations in this category report effective instructional practices that have been researched and utilized in teacher education programs, K-12 school settings, and professional development settings. This includes innovative instructional design and development approaches and use of effective instructional tools. Proposals should mention theoretical concepts applied. You are encouraged to demonstrate or share part of this best practice with participants to assist them with integrating these practices within their own practices.

[Other] Technological Innovations: Presentations in this category report cutting-edge technologies as they relate to teacher education programs, K-12 schools or teacher professional development. Technologies include but are not limited to technological pedagogical content knowledge, gaming, Web 2.0 tools, social networking software, podcasts, blogs, and wikis. You are encouraged to demonstrate use of this technological innovation and showcase a final product.

TED would like to solicit interactive presentations that facilitate audience participation and encourage audience members to discuss/implement new ideas. Let us know if you have an idea for a panel session.

TED also welcomes multi-disciplinary presentations, both from within AECT and from external contributors. Collaboration with others is welcome.

For questions or more information, please contact Lara M Luetkehans at luetke@niu.edu

April AECT Board of Directors Meeting Notes

Posted By Susan Stansberry, Friday, April 20, 2012

The Board met April 18th via conference call with the following Board members participating: Ana Donaldson, Phil Harris, Ellen Hoffman, Nancy Hasting, Steve Harmon. Bob Doyle, Dave Dannenberg, Monica Tracey, Wes Miller, Leslie Blatt, Marc Childress, Trey Martindale, Susan Stansberry, Tony Betrus, Barbara Lockee. Below are my notes:

Board members unable to attend: MJ Bishop, Frank Duffy, Al Mizell, David Moore

President’s Report - Ana Donaldson

  1. AECT Board member-at-large positions - Barbara Lockee is chairing the Nominations Committee and is asking for nominations for two people in these positions. Please send me nominations if you’d like, and I will send them on in one group from TED.
  2. Publications - TechTrends still a concern, Springer royalty payment due mid-May, likely to be down again.
  3. Certificate Endorsement - Request for review from University of Hawaii (Ellen contact) and Lehigh (MJ contact) received. These two will move forward with committee.

5. Affiliate/partner/AECT visit:

a. As AECT President, Ana will be attending the Arkansas Association for Instructional Media conference - April 22-24, Rogers, AK

6. Jenny Johnson International Intern application
a. Requested essay length changed to max of 1,000 words.

b. Special review committee composed of two Intern-Coordinators, a representative from the AECT Board, the Foundation, and the International Division.

7. Research Symposium - 15 papers have been selected and two keynote speakers have been

Selected for this event to be held at the Galt House in Louisville, KY, on July 18-20, 2012. Watch the aect.org website for registration information.

8. International 2013 Conference – The Executive Officer team is looking at having a conference at an international site in

2013. Ana developed a proposal request based on Summer Research Symposium format.

9. Status of two task forces:

i. Standards - To be vetted at PIDT in May and draft version to vote on in Louisville at Summer Leadership and final in October. Note: AECT is no longer an NCATE SPA but standards can still be used in process.

ii. Strategic Planning will be the focus of the Summer Leadership meeting in July.

10. The April newsletter has been posted at http://aect.site-ym.com/resource/resmgr/Newsletters/Current.pdf.Looking for May

contributions.
11. Ana completed official letter of recognition for newly elected officers and they have been sent out.
12. Merlot question on including AECT in their Teacher Education table. TED has developed the description: Phil contacted Merlot for additional information for inclusion.

Supports the development of knowledge, skills, and dispositions of educators who create effective learning environments for diverse learners through the integration of technology.

http://teachereducation.merlot.org/beyond.html A special thanks goes out to our TED President, Jen Banas, for handling this!

13. Discussion on Seels and Richey republishing.

1. Changing the title to The Domains of IT so it didn't compete or be confusing with the current definition. Maybe: The History and Domains of "Instructional Technology" would be better. Phil noted new definitions book was meant to replace the older one. Rita indicated would take "definition” out of the title. Last revision in 1994. Nancy indicated committee is in favor as long as clear not the definition. Discussion of whether should be historical artifact and not change; maybe keep without change - put date in title. Instructional Technology: The Definition and Domains of the Field: 1994 Edition.

2. Changing the name to Educational rather than Instructional Technology which would require a little revising or editing.

3. Sharing the royalty with AECT, in past sold directly by AECT.

NOTE: possibility of e-book published with Information Age Publishing.

Moved: to append the title to include "1994 Edition” after existing title and reprint; royalties to be shared between original authors and AECT. Approved unanimously.


Executive Director Report (Phil Harris)

  1. AECT status: The building that houses the AECT office is officially listed for sale. Our yearly lease expires July 31st. Large collection of back issues of journals; may be asking if need to keep. Phil will send to anyone who needs back issues, so let him know if you are interested.
  2. Discussion of future convention site:

a. Only have one proposal on the table for Las Vegas, Riviera. Excellent rate but issue of assurance of renovation going forward.

b. Also looking toward San Antonio, Austin, TX, Portland, OR and possibly Albuquerque NM for 2016.

3. New member marketing – brochure in final stages of development; incentives to get current

members to "share best kept secret - benefits of membership in AECT.”

4. Reminders: Summer Leadership - July 15th arrival - social hour with dinner to start, July 16th

Board Meeting all day, July 17th Leadership day. This is at the Galt House in Louisville. Typically, the President, President-Elect, and Board member from divisions go for sure, but this is open to others interested in getting involved in leadership.

TED Board Meeting Minutes (March 2, 2012)

Posted By Craig Shepherd, Tuesday, March 6, 2012

Minutes

TED Meeting – March 2 2012.

1:30pm EST, 12:30pm CST, 11:30am MST

Attending: J Banas, S Farber, A Leftwich, J Siko, S. Stansberry


1.       2012 AECT Convention

a.       General update (Anne)

b.      TED luncheon vs. TED/SMT breakfast (Anne)


Anne reported that 39 proposals had been submitted. TED lunch is ready to go with minimal conflicts



2.       AECT 2012 TED panels, workshops, and session updates collaboration using themes from TED meeting (Anne, Jen, Susan F.)


Anne suggested that the panel proposals be submitted one week before the other proposal reviews are due (which is early April).  Anne and Jen will review.



3.       Elections update (Susan S.)


Results will be available March 8



4.       Article awards (Anne) and Tech Integration Awards (Susan S.).


Susan didn’t get much feedback from the FB page.  She will work on a description and get it to Anne. Anne will send a message out to TED members with both descriptions in the next 2 weeks.



5.       GSA representative (Jen)


Jen reported on behalf of Matt A.  Matt indicated the GSA would be interested in collaborating in a faculty/mentor exchange.  They have an existing program (the GSA Faculty/Mentor Symposium) to which we could solicit and then send TED members.  TED executive members approved.  Jen will take the responsibility of promoting this exchange.

 



6.       Webinar collaborations (Susan F.)


Susan F.  will continue to work with Matt to identify best dates for a TED/GSA hosted webinar. We are aiming towards the end of April (after breaks and religious holidays). It would most likely take place in the late morning or early afternoon.



7.       Blog


The AECT blog needs to be updated.  Anne and Susan S. pointed to the need to have a logo, updated executive board information, information about the division, and a point for communication.  While FB provides a place for conversation, it does not offer the best place for information.  Jen suggested that TED Exec members visit the other divisons’ pages and write down things we’d like to see on ours.  This will be brought to the next meeting and shared with Craig and Jason.  Craig and Jason, as our communication team, will work to update it and maintain it on a monthly basis (or as needed). Craig recently gained access to the site; Jason will need access, too. Jen will follow up with Craig. 



8.       Next Meeting


March 30, 2012

1:30pm EST, 12:30pm CST, 11:30am MST
