Do you have a unique design project or program that you’ve developed for training or education?
If so, the D&D Showcase might be the perfect place to share it with AECT members!

D&D Division invites you to submit a proposal to the D&D Showcase of Innovative Training and Educational Programs

Session Date: TBA for AECT International Convention 2014, Anaheim, CA
Proposal Deadline is coming soon: February 16, 2014.

The Design and Development (D&D) Division invites practitioners, faculty and students to showcase their completed and innovative training and educational programs. The projects should be grounded in theory and research related to the instructional design field. The D&D Showcase plays an important role in providing such examples as an exclusive event at the 2104 AECT International Convention this coming fall.

This D&D Showcase is a special event to honor and allow developers to share quality programs for all Convention attendees to learn from and enjoy. We know that prospective and practicing instructional designers, training specialists and others seek examples of such select programs to enhance their ability to design effective learning experiences and develop different types of instructional materials and environments.

The D&D Showcase will be open during regular session presentation times at the Convention (November 4-9, 2104 in Jacksonville, FL). Authors of selected programs will have an easel and table to display their poster and materials describing key components of the program (e.g., goal/intent, target learners, theoretical and research foundations, design and development process, team members, cost). At least one author/presenter per accepted program must registered for the AECT Convention and be present during the specified time of “Meet the D&D Showcase Authors/Teams.” The D&D Showcase session will be 2 to 3 hours event (including set-up time).

For further details about how to submit a proposal, go to the Call for Proposals on the AECT website ( and open the Design Showcase link in Invitations.

Hope to see many proposals submitted in the next few days!
