Instructional Technology Doctoral Students win AECT Design Competition
TAMPA, Fla. (December 1, 2017) – Instructional Technology doctoral students Jessica Hooper and Elena Erick were selected as winners of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology’s (AECT) Design and Development Competition at the 2017 AECT International Convention in November.
The AECT Design and Development Competition is designed for graduate student teams of two to take a realistic problem that Instructional Designers might face in business and industry and design a solution to the problem. Judges evaluate these solutions in terms of theoretical excellence, creativity and feasibility.
Hooper and Erick’s proposal was chosen as the winner from three finalist groups who presented at the conference. USF Instructional Technology students Huiruo Chen and Nicole Emert were also selected as one of the three finalist groups in the national competition.
The Association for Educational Communications and Technology is a professional association of thousands of educators and others whose activities are directed toward improving instruction through technology.
