As a fourth year doctoral candidate, in addition to having completed comprehensive examinations and prospectus and working on the dissertation, my thoughts are also turning towards the job market and securing that first academic position. This purpose of this blog is to chronicle the trials and tribulations of completing my Ph.D. and finding that first job.

Feedback Requested - AECT Graduate Student Assembly

Re-posted on behalf of myself and my AECT Intern colleagues...


One of the things that became obvious to us as AECT interns at this past annual convention was the lack of official channels for communication between graduate students and AECT. In an attempt to address this, the 2006 AECT Interns are proposing the creation of a Graduate Student Assembly.

At present we have posted a draft of the by-laws which will serve as the formal organization for this new body within AECT. We ask that you, both graduate students and others, go and visit that entry at the AECT Intern blog (see http://www.aect-members.org/interns/blog/archives/cat_news.php#000684) and provide feedback - on the wording of the draft by-laws, on the issues that we have asked for feedback on, and anything else you feel relevant for the creation of such a body within AECT.

We hope to make this proposal to the AECT Executive Committee and AECT Board in January, so we are asking for the feedback process to begin immediately and we will consider any and all feedback that we receive by Janaury 3 in our final draft that we submit.

We thank you in advance for your input into this process.
