Marina McIsaac Award



Dr. Marina McIsaac has been a long-time supporter of AECT since joining the association in 1973. In addition, she is a past-president of the International Division and the International Council for Educational Media. Each year, she encouraged and supported graduate students to attend and to present their research at AECTís annual conferences. At these conferences, she introduced her students to other academic community members. Such exercises helped her students to expand their networks. McIsaacís traditions expanded to four generations of academic scholars. It was due to her dedication to the international academic community that current members are following Dr. McIsaac's role-modeling. The Award acknowledges McIsaac for her endeavor to continue adding young members to adopt AECT among their professional affiliations. Moreover, several of her former students have served as president of the International Division.
