Thank you for your service Dr. Ana Paula Correia!

RTD members,

Looking back to my experiences as president-elect, president and past-president of the AECT Research and Theory division I have mix feelings of achievement and nostalgia. Now that my journey as president comes to an end, it is very fulfilling to see what the division has accomplished on these last few years.

Thanks to the dedication and commitment of its board members and members’ involvement, we were able to grow a strong division. The annual convention program puts a special emphasis on presenting research and scholarship that encompasses multiple perspectives and supports emerging scholars; the members have a greater voice as result of a constructive dialogue on Facebook; newly created awards recognize individuals /teams and their impact on the field of Educational Technology; and successful elections secure a keen and innovative leadership.

The nostalgia comes from a certainty that I will no longer be part of a group of outstanding professionals and people that are taking AECT Research and Theory division to the next level. The current division board members work diligently to strengthen networks and promote critical conversations that have a definitive impact on the field.

With gratitude,
Ana-Paula Correia
