As part of our organizational response to the COVID-19 crisis, AECT is planning a series of three open and free webinars that target international, higher education, and K-12 contexts.  The first webinar announcement is below.

Everyone is welcome to attend; it is not a members-only event.  As such, please share this announcement widely and with colleagues who may be outside of our normal AECT family. We often are exasperated by our lack of voice and just “talking to ourselves.” These topics are broad enough to appeal and address topics many professionals across different contexts may be interested in. Perhaps a college-wide listserv and an email forward to your center for teaching and learning?

AECT Webinar Series:  International and Cultural Perspectives on Teaching, Learning, and Technologies in Response to the COVID-19 Virus

When: Mar 19, 2020 12:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Register in advance for this meeting:

For organizations based in the US, we often receive a very Western-centric view of international news. However, AECT, while based in the US, is an international organization with members and affiliates spanning the globe.

Join us as we bring together four faculty members from around the world to describe their personal experiences and expert perspectives This session will provide the current state of affairs at four different institutions and regions, and we will hear how these institutions are continuing teaching and learning in light of the health crisis.
