This year’s convention theme is Learning from Las Vegas. The goal of the convention is for all participants to learn from the experiences and activities of the convention, enriching their lives and their professional skills. Of particular interest this year is a focus on creativity; creativity in teaching, research, and in design as it is applied to the field of educational technology. We are creating in our research and the development of new knowledge; sharing that new knowledge is central to the AECT Convention.

November 4 – November 8, 2014 (Jacksonville, Florida)

As reflected in our convention theme – Learning, Design, and Technology – AECT continues in the direction of providing international leadership by promoting scholarship and best practices in the creation, use, and management of technologies for effective teaching and learning. The theme of this conference emphasizes and maximizes our strength as a premier international organization in educational technology, the organization to which others refer for research and best practices.


AECT International Convention 2013aect convention

October 29-November 2, 2013  (Anaheim, California)

This year’s convention theme is Innovate! Integrate! Communicate!. Over the last year there has been a renewed interest among the general public in using technology for training and education. Fueled by high profile projects such as the Stanford AI class, MITx, and the Khan Academy, many organizations have been rushing to implement technology enhanced learning and instructional systems. Not surprisingly, just as has happened several times before when the pendulum of popular opinion has swung toward greater use of technology for learning, more than a few of these organizations are rushing to embrace ill-conceived and poorly researched strategies and techniques that have consistently failed in the past. We know better! The membership of AECT is in a unique position to shape the future of learning and instruction. We are a nexus for research and communication about educational technology.
