Nine early career faculty applicants from the U.

AECT is an international professional association dedicated to providing leadership in educational communications and technology by linking professionals holding a common interest in the use of technology and its application to the learning process. Dr. Hu has since made multiple local, regional, and national presentations and publications on her work in asynchronous distance education and other technology-aided instructional approaches.
