AECT Elections - Now in progress, until March 8

I want to encourage all IDT students/alumni who are members of The Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) to login and vote. Elections will be open until March 8, 2012.

Remember, AECT members can join as many divisions as desired (at no cost) and may vote in any of the division elections. ESU IDT alumnus (and Old Dominion University Ph.D. candidate), Enilda Romero is on the ballot for the Research and Theory Division (Secretary).

Not a member, yet? The $75 Student Membership comes with all Member Benefits, including free online access to many publications, such as The Handbook of Research for Educational Communications and Technology (All editions) - (quite a deal!),  a one-year subscription to TechTrends For Leaders in Education and Training, and other member-only benefits.
