2019 AECT-SICET CONVENTION AND SICET-EITT CONVENTION: CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The Society of International Chinese in Educational Technology (SICET) is one of the AECT Affiliated Organizations. SICET provides international leadership by promoting scholarship and best practices in the creation, use, and management of technologies for effective teaching and learning in a wide range of settings. Each year, SICET organizes two events – the AECT-SICET conference as part of AECT convention, and EITT convention held at a different country. 

This year, SICET has scheduled the EITT convention immediately after the AECT convention in the USA. That is, EITT will take place on October 27-31, 2019 at Biloxi, Mississippi, immediately after the AECT convention on October 21-25, 2019 in Las Vegas. This is to encourage more international presentations and participations. We welcome all AECT members to submit proposals to SICET and EITT conferences.
