The EDHP-SIG invites you to submit a proposal for the 2021 AECT International Convention to be held in Columbus, Ohio, from November 2-6, 2021. The AECT International Convention brings together AECT members and affiliated educational researchers and practitioners interested in learning design, performance improvement, and technologies. The goal is to:

  • engage in social discourse and academic exchanges
  • showcase evidence-based practices
  • share their research findings, and
  • advanced design, development, integration of emerging technologies.

The vision of the EDHP-SIG is to help, “ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages.” To achieve our vision, the EDHP–SIG’s mission is to advance the professional practice of healthcare professionals and instructional designers by fostering transdisciplinary collaboration and communications, promoting immersion and the sharing of ideas and resources, and by facilitating evidence-based education, training, and professional development of healthcare professionals and their clients.

If you are working to forward our missions, please share your knowledge, insights, and experience with us and your colleagues by submitting a proposal to present at the 2021 AECT conference. For more details, and to submit a proposal, please go to For more information about the EDHP-SIG, including links to our FB and LinkedIn presence, please go to

FYI – Currently, AECT leadership is planning an in-person conference with virtual components. So many were able to join us last year due to online access, the in-coming President and conference planners have been asked to please make sure valued aspects of the conference remain online for those who cannot travel.

Hope to “see you” at the 2021 AECT conference. Please let me know, or one of our EDHP-SIG conference planners (Ginger Watson , Beth Jordan , Tae (John) Jeon ) know if you have any questions or comments regarding the conference.

Thanks for your time and consideration. Please feel free to share the call for proposals with others you think maybe interested.
