Overview of the AECT Research Symposium.

Formative Design in Learning: Design thinking, growth mindset, and community

2022 AECT Summer Research Symposium

The Association for Educational Communication and Technology (AECT) is soliciting research-supported papers for a symposium on formative learning design. Writings selected will be included in a published book and a selected number will be included in the Journal of Formative Design in Learning.

The symposium will be held in Bloomington, Indiana July 13-14, 2022 . A block of rooms has been reserved at the Indiana University Student Union and Biddle Hotel, where all sessions will be held.

Proposals are solicited in multiple areas of formative design including design thinking, educational orientation, and pedagogical research. Both theory and research concerning formative learning design are welcome. Experiences from outside the traditional boundaries of instructional design and educational technology are encouraged. Proposals will be accepted through AECT.org after January 1, 2022.

The Symposium will begin the morning of July 13, 2022 and end on July 14, 2022 at the end of the day. It is the goal of the symposium to gather together a select group of scholars to share research for real dialogue and deep discussions about learning experience and learning design. Using Art of Hosting techniques for engaged conversation, we will have very intense and deep discussions of each proposed chapter. Social and recreation events will be developed to engage the participants more fully with the topic of design; non-electronic work periods will used to examine the field from different view-points. The conference fee is $200. Breakfast and lunch each date (Wednesday/Thursday) will be provided. Hotel Reservations at the Biddle Hotel are made separately.
