LRNASST netters,
 
Some of you might be interested in this virtual conference.  Interesting means
of preparing for a conference.

**************
 
Members of AERA's Division C, Learning and Instruction, may be
especially interested in this virtual symposium:
 
     Reflections on the Process of Bridging Theory to Practice
     in Creating Technology-Based Learning Environments
 
In addition to being a Division C (Section 3) session at the AERA
annual meeting in San Francisco, the symposium has been selected
for AERA's virtual conference, VirtCon II.  Both before and after
the face-to-face meeting in SF, you will be able to discuss
online with the session presenters.
 
Our intention is to expand and enhance the f-t-f discussion.  We
hope that many who meet virtually will also meet at the symposium
in SF.  Those unable to be in SF can still experience part of the
annual meeting through VirtCon.
 
Registration to VirtCon is free and is open to all who have
e-mail access to the Internet or BITNET.  To register, send
