Discover the future of teaching and learning with technology
The AECT International Convention brings together educational researchers and practitioners interested in learning design, performance improvement, and educational uses of technology. Join us as we share and learn about recent research and evidence-based best practices and engage in professional networking.

The 2023 conference marks 100 years as an organization. As we continue to address critical issues within our field and in our larger societies, there is value in revisiting and reflecting on previous contributions that have shaped our current practices and perspectives; fundamental theories and practices that contribute to today's research, policies, and practices; and whether our work includes, serves, and benefits from the diversity of learners and context.

“AECT has been the academic home for me. AECT has helped me connect with leaders in the field and I’ve continued to grow as a scholar and researcher. I’ve moved from grad student to tenured professor and now department chair. I advise others to: join in, dive in, power on.”

“I’m working on mobile learning for out-of-school students in Nigeria. The audience was very encouraging when I presented my work. I’ve been learning a lot at the convention about online teaching and learning and about instructional design from leaders in the field. I’ve also connected with grad students from all over and it encourages you that you’re not alone in your journey.”
