Title: Academic and Professional Associations in Instructional Technology
Presenter: our very own Preston Parker
Ever wonder how to get involved in Instructional Technology on a national and international level? Ever wonder why you would want to? Preston Parker, a third year PhD student at Utah State University’s Instructional Technology program and Research Assistant for the Center for Open and Sustainable Learning, will address these questions. He will offer a “student’s point of view” of what academic and professional associations can offer. As this year’s recipient of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology Strohbehn Internship, he offers a unique perspective of the benefits of becoming involved in associations. Topics will include: who the associations are, their contact information, their strengths and weaknesses, their annual conference dates and locations, what they offer, and why to get involved.
