Dear SICET Colleagues and Friends:

As one of the affiliates of AECT, SICET is interested leading learning for a change in an interconnected world. In keeping with the conference theme this year, we look forward to proposals that discuss impacts of teaching, research, and learning environment designs, changes of our field, work or research, and innovative approaches that scholars and practitioners can learn from your work.

We are especially looking forward to proposals that feature issues related to comparative research across nations and cultural contexts in instructional technology approaches, impacts, changes, and trends. We also welcome proposals focusing on a specific cultural setting or community, cultural influences on teaching and learning, and applications of theories or principles in a specific cultural setting. Traditional proposals that present findings and discuss important developments in research and practice are also welcome.

The mission of SICET is to establish and strengthen academic international connections, exchanges, research, and studies in educational technology for teaching and learning, as well as to promote the application of educational technology in Chinese education. SICET especially encourages proposals from international Chinese scholars in order to improve research in this community, mentor those new to the field, and enhance connections and relationships between Chinese and international scholars. This is a great opportunity to share your experiences, expertise and knowledge with international scholars in the field of educational technology.
