Design Thinking has been receiving attention in education as a set of strategies applicable to student learning, teacher development and educational innovation. There is a clear need for scholarly and practical evidence and examples of educational approaches that bring design into education—particularly in regard to formative design. The goal of this symposium is to bring together scholars interested in the role of formative design and design thinking in a collaborative and discussion and peer-review process to develop potential submissions for the Journal of Formative Designs for Learning (JFDL).  While the focus of this symposium is on design thinking and how it relates to formative design, we are open to various approaches, tools, processes, and ways of viewing and applying formative design and design thinking in teaching and learning.

Las Vegas, Nevada
October 21 - October 25  2019 

Workshop Sessions: Monday, October 21 through Friday October 25
Concurrent Sessions, Posters, Panels & Roundtable: October 21 - October 25

This year’s convention theme is Inspired Professional Learning. Inspired Learning Professionals. Inspired denotes the extraordinary quality of the sessions at our convention, and we endeavor to improve ourselves through exceptional professional learning opportunities. Inspired also denotes to fill someone with the impetus or ability to do or feel, especially with creativity. As educators and learning professionals, we hope the convention sessions will inspire you to do and feel, so we desperately need influential, stimulating, exciting sessions that will spark fires in our attendees. We encourage proposals that offer opportunities for AECT members to seek out professional development sessions, occasions for improving pedagogical strategies and technical skills, and engage in professional renewal. Reports of research, practice, evaluations, service, and pedagogy are all welcome. Proposers should attempt to address this theme in their proposals, highlighting where the proposal addresses this theme. 

Take this opportunity to connect with your peers! The goal of the convention is for participants from around the world to learn from the experiences and activities of the convention, enriching their professional lives. We are very interested in your research and practice in the field of instructional design and technology.
