Well, here I am at AECT, and already I'm enjoying it.Â I must admit.Â I like "being a member of the club."Â When I was in graduate school, our department chair at Utah State was Don Smellie, a former president of AECT.Â He used to tell us, "You've got to be a member of the club.Â If you're not a member of the club, then it doesn't matter."Â
So I do like being a member of the club and the social aspect of this conference.
So far I've run into some people I've known for a while and it's been good to catch up.Â I had breakfast with David Merrill, chatted with Andy Gibbons and Don Descy, caught up with Brad Hokanson, Lauren Cifuentes and Jennifer Summerville, and I SAW Trey Martindale, but I haven't talked with him yet.
I plan on posting throughout the week.
