AECT Anaheim follow-up

Research and Theory Division Members,

I hope those of you who attended last week's convention in Anaheim had an enriching experience and an uneventful return home. I know that I always return, invigorated with new ideas and feeling refreshed from catching-up with my long-time colleagues and meeting many new friends. I would like to extend a special thank you to those who presented as a part of our Research and Theory
Division program. In addition, I hope those of you who were unable to attend in Anaheim can join us next year in Jacksonville, Florida.

AECT 2011 International Convention - Jacksonville, Florida - November 8-12, 2011
Mark your calendars for November 8-12, 2011. The theme - Celebrate 3.0: Design.Learn.Community. President-Elect Ana Donaldson and her planning team of Mary Herring and Sharon Smaldino are sure to put together an exciting program. We will be meeting at the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Waterfront.
