All LTEC MEd and PhD students are encouraged to become members of the discipline’s professional organization, the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT). This membership is needed for access to publications used in required coursework, but is also appropriate for individuals who plan to become leaders in the field. AECT’s standards and code of ethics are a foundation for the department’s programs. AECT has a student membership and offers opportunities for professional networking and conferences. See the AECT website for details.
AECT-HI, Local chapter of AECT
Beginning in Fall 2011, the LTEC department became the sponsor of the officially- recognized Hawaii chapter of AECT (AECT- HI). Membership is free, and is open to students, faculty, alumni and interested community members. Activities include professional development and social networking. Graduate students are the officers and the majority on the Board of Directors. All LTEC master’s students are encouraged to participate.
