AECT Standard Graduate Work

The following are artifacts and samples of my projects and assignments that demonstrate mastery of each of the Association of Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) Standards.

Check out my blog for the latest.

Standard 1 Design

Candidates demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to design conditions for learning by applying principles of instructional systems design, message design, instructional strategies, and learner characteristics.

Standards

1.1 Instructional Systems Design

Instructional Systems Design (ISD) is an organized procedure that includes the steps of analyzing, designing, developing, implementing, and evaluating instruction.

EDTECH 503:

1.2 Message Design

Message design involves planning for the manipulation of the physical form of the message.

EDTECH 506:

1.3 Instructional Strategies

Instructional strategies are specifications for selecting and sequencing events and activities within a lesson.

EDTECH 502:

1.4 Learner Characteristics

Learner characteristics are those facets of the learner’s experiential background that impact the effectiveness of a learning process.

EDTECH 511:

Standard 3 Utilization

Candidates demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to use processes and resources for learning by applying principles and theories of media utilization, diffusion, implementation, and policy-making.

Standards

Links to Artifacts

3.1 Media Utilization

Media utilization is the systematic use of resources for learning.

EDTECH 502:

3.2 Diffusion of Innovations

Diffusion of innovations is the process of communicating through planned strategies for the purpose of gaining adoption.

EDTECH 501:

Independent Study

3.3 Implementation and Institutionalization

Implementation is using instructional materials or strategies in real(not simulated) settings. Institutionalization is the continuing, routine use of the instructional innovation in the structure and culture of an organization.

 EDTECH 504:

3.4 Policies and Regulations

Policies and regulations are the rules and actions of society (or its surrogates) that affect the diffusion and use of Instructional Technology.

EDTECH 502:

EDTECH 505:

Standard 4 Management

Candidates demonstrate knowledge, skills, and dispositions to plan, organize, coordinate, and supervise instructional technology by applying principles of project, resource, delivery system, and information management.

Standards

Links to Artifacts

4.1 Project Management

Project management involves planning, monitoring, and controlling instructional design and development projects.

EDTECH 505

EDTECH 512

4.2 Resource Management

Resource management involves planning, monitoring, and controlling resource support systems and services.

 EDTECH 506:

4.3 Delivery System Management

Delivery system management involves planning, monitoring and controlling ‘the method by which distribution of instructional materials is organized’ . . . [It is] a combination of medium and method of usage that is employed to present instructional information to a learner.

Independent Study:

4.4 Information Management

Information management involves planning, monitoring, and controlling the storage, transfer, or processing of information in order to provide resources for learning.

 Independent Study:

Standard 5 Evaluation

Candidates demonstrate knowledge, skills, and dispositions to evaluate the adequacy of instruction and learning by applying principles of problem analysis, criterion-referenced measurement, formative and summative evaluation, and long-range planning.

Standards

Links to Artifacts

5.1 Problem Analysis

Problem analysis involves determining the nature and parameters of the problem by using information-gathering and decision-making strategies.

 EDTECH 512:

5.2 Criterion-Referenced Measurement

Criterion-referenced measurement involves techniques for determining learner mastery of pre-specified content.

EDTECH 502:

5.3 Formative and Summative Evaluation

Formative evaluation involves gathering information on adequacy and using this information as a basis for further development. Summative evaluation involves gathering information on adequacy and using this information to make decisions about utilization.

EDTECH 505:

5.4 Long-Range Planning

Long-range planning that focuses on the organization as a whole is strategic planning. Long-range is usually defined as a future period of about three to five years or longer. During strategic planning, managers are trying to decide in the present what must be done to ensure organizational success in the future.
