AECT, ECT, student development, leadership development, presentation
In 2003, I attended my first AECT presentation. As a first-year master’s student, I was excited but overwhelmed; however, I quickly learned that AECT is an organization where even newcomers can be involved. One day, I saw a description of a session for “leadership development.” Because I was brand new to AECT, and to the field of instructional design, I knew I needed development if I ever hoped to be a leader! I found the room with the door open and walked in and sat down. I quickly learned that this was a session for those who train new leaders—not for those like me who needed the training. Still, the group did not make me feel awkward or unwelcome, and they even invited me to stay and participate!
