Dates: June 17, 18, 19
Location: Denton Texas

AECT and UNT are calling for presentation proposals for the 2004 AECT Professional Development Institute and Summer Conference. Proposals for papers, demonstrations or posters that describe either research or practice involving new approaches for using technology to support learning in K-12, Higher Ed. or Corporate training are encouraged.

* Note: In addition to a typical academic audience we are expecting that a large percentage of attendees will be K-12 teachers. We encourage proposals that are application-based or “how-to” that assist classroom teachers.

Submit proposals for paper, posters, panels, or demonstrations covering the following tracks:

    1. Research (Empirical or Theoretical)
      A. Emerging Technologies: Describing the application of emerging technologies including theoretical approaches.
      B. New Learning Models and Paradigms: Theoretical or adaptive models which focus on learning designs enabled through the use of emerging technologies.
      C. Research Projects: Empirical studies (all methodologies) of emerging technologies or instructional models that utilize emerging technologies.
      D. Leadership or Administration: Models or approaches to managing the evolution and application of technologies into schools or corporate environments.

    2. Applications

      A. Examples of Innovative Uses of Technologies
      B. Examples of Teaching Strategies w/technology
      C. Non-traditional/Creative Technology Solutions

essions can be 30 or 60 minutes in length.
Papers may also be submitted for publication in Conference Proceedings.
