Educational Technology, Instructional Design, and Online Learning Conferences Summer 2018

The following list was adapted from Clayton R. Wright’s Educational Technology and Education Conferences List #39. Please refer to Wright’s complete list for other conferences as well as each conference website for more details. Each year I attend AECT, AERA, and 1-2 other conferences. I use this list to identify what other conferences I might attend. Thus, this list is focused on my research interests and/or convenient or interesting locations.
