Great lists in Ed Tech

I was reminded of  this today by  Stephen Downes’ OLDaily, and wondered if I’ve ever passed it along.  I should have, but a search of my posts suggests that I haven’t.  Curtis Bonk, whom I prefer to call “The Node”, maintains three very useful sites for educational technology and instructional design educators  and especially for graduate students:

1. Jobs

2. Journals

3. Academic programs

And while I’m talking about useful lists, here is a message and update from Clayton R Wright.  He pulls together a wonderful annual list of conferences in educational technology.


Clayton writes:

In September, I will start to prepare the 25th Educational Technology and Related Education Conference listings covering events in 2012.


If in past lists, I MISSED a professional development event that occurs on a regular basis, please let me know so that I can look for it in 2012. If you have the url, date, and location of the 2012 event, they would be most appreciated.


Remember, this e-mail is focused on events that you did not see on my previous listings, and are of interest to you.
