Invitation to Showcase Innovative Training and Educational Programs

At the 2007 AECT conference, the Design and Development Division is inviting practitioners as well as faculty and students to showcase innovative training and educational programs that are grounded in theory and research to share their work and for all conference participates to learn from and enjoy. We know that prospective and practicing educators, instructional designers and training specialists seek examples of innovative training and educational programs to enhance their ability to design effective learning experiences and develop different types of instructional materials and environments. We expect the Design and Development Showcase to play an important role in providing such examples.

Please download the complete call for proposals for details, including directions, assessment criteria, and dates for submissions.
