EDIT Graduate Student Garners Highest Honor in His Field
Fathi Ari has been selected as an AECT 2011 Cochran intern. Each year five outstanding Instructional Technology doctoral students enrolled in graduate programs from around the world are awarded. The internship is considered to be the highest honor of its kind within the field of Instructional Technology.
The internship program seeks to identify students that demonstrate the potential to become future leaders in the field as well as within AECT (Association for Educational Communications and Technology) itself. According to ARI, “Nominations for this honor typically include students from universities, such as Indiana, Syracuse and The University of Georgia, as well as nominations from universities in Canada, Netherlands, Korea and Australia.”
AECT Interns will receive complimentary convention registration, housing and a cash award at Jacksonville 2011 during the international convention. In addition, each intern chairs at least one concurrent session at the convention and performs hands-on tasks that provide a behind-the-scenes view of convention operations and provides contact with many AECT leaders and members (past presidents, division chairs, and others).
Ari’s selection is not only a credit to him but to his program; his department, Educational Psychology and Leadership; his college; and his University. Congratulations, Fathi Ari.
