Theme of the 2019 Convention

This year’s convention theme is Inspired Professional Learning. Inspired Learning Professionals. We encourage proposals that offer opportunities for AECT members to seek out professional development sessions, occasions for improving pedagogical strategies and technical skills, and engage in professional renewal. Proposers should attempt to address this theme in their proposals, highlighting where the proposal addresses this theme.

Take this opportunity to connect with your peers! The goal of the convention is for participants from around the world to learn from the experiences and activities of the convention, enriching their professional lives. We are very interested in your research and practice in the field of instructional design and technology.

Session Types

Consider submitting your proposals in line with one of the following session types.

  1. Inspire! Session: Inspire sessions focus on professional development opportunities for our members and convention attendees. These sessions should encourage professional growth by obtaining new knowledge, skills, or strategies. These sessions will last 50-minutes, and they should include high engagement between presenter(s) and attendees (e.g., hands-on activities, role playing, crowdsourcing, collaborative learning, game-based learning, etc.). Proposals for Inspire! sessions should identify learning outcomes or goals for attendees and describe how presenters will engage with and encourage interaction with the attendees. The short abstract should indicate if attendees should bring any equipment, software, or materials with them to the session.  There are no fees for attending these sessions.
  2. Concurrent Session: These 25-minute sessions are primarily stand-up presentations. The focus of these sessions is on sharing information, such as best practices and research results. When proposing such a session, make sure to describe how you will engage with, and encourage interaction with your audience. Reading slides to your audience is not acceptable. In addition, planners will “bundle” concurrent presentations with another of related content to form one 50-minute session. 
  3. Poster Session: Posters are designed to showcase a project, program, process, activity, or similar experience in an informal setting. Posters may be projects that are completed, in progress, or in their beginning stages. A small table is provided to support a display board, laptop, and handouts. Feedback and insights of colleagues on these innovative developments are especially encouraged. Posters are scheduled simultaneously with Roundtables in multiple large rooms. Poster size is 48” x 36” horizontal/landscape layout. Presenters will design and bring their own posters to be attached to tri-fold panels provided by AECT.
