Scholarly Journals (Peer Reviewed):
Each year, dozens of research papers are presented at the convention of the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) and published in the proceedings of the convention.
The vast majority of these papers are the results of doctoral student dissertation research.
The proceedings are an excellent source of ideas for dissertation research and contain hundreds of examples of research in the fields of instructional technology and distance education.
Many AECT conference papers can be located free online by searching the ERIC database. Use the search term AECT. For the most precise results, limit your results to conference papers to elminate results that mention AECT but are not actually papers presented at the conference
These proceedings can also be downloaded for free in order for NSU ITDE students to inspect and review them. If however you decide to use one of the proceedings, then there is a charge of $20 that must be paid (the regular rate is $80). Reading the proceedings is free.
