Culture, Learning and Technology's Description

The Culture, Learning, and Technology division is composed of AECT members who are concerned with issues relevant to the intersection of culture, learning, and technology.  We consider:


We seek proposals that explore relationships between culture, learning, and technology in education, politics, economics, science, the arts, business, and all other segments of society. Our only requirement is that all proposals explicitly address culture, learning and technology.

We welcome proposals that present the findings of empirical research as well as conceptual/theoretical pieces that address the conference theme: Learning from Las Vegas.  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.

For each conference, CLT accepts proposals for four types of presentations: Concurrent sessions, roundtables, poster presentations, and panel discussions.

Concurrent sessions involve research proposals - qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods - and should reflect completed empirical research that involves the collection and analysis of data and/or meta-analysis of existing published research.

Roundtables and poster sessions may present practical applications of research in various settings or discussion of concepts relevant to the field.  Some presenters choose one of these formats for completed research.

Our Panel discussions are usually professional development sessions that may focus on navigating graduate education or developing a career in the many places that employ instructional scientist.  We are open to other ideas for panel sessions as well.

Please see the 2016 “Invitation to Present” and Call for Proposal page for the unique themes attached to each type of proposal for the 2016 Convention in Las Vegas.  Also, be sure to read the Submission Guidelines and Effective Proposals information available from the links on the same page.
