Rebeca Peacock, an assistant professor and librarian in Albertsons Library, has been selected as a 2020 Lee W. Cochran Intern for the Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT), an international association for instructional design and technology research and practice.
These prestigious internships identify individuals with significant potential to provide future leadership for AECT and in the broader field. In addition to working on a doctorate in education with a focus on instructional design and technology at Idaho State University, Peacock also serves as Albertsons Library’s instructional designer. In this role, Peacock supports the library’s instruction program and liaison outreach efforts, and leads the Library Badges microcourse. Integrated into the University Foundations program, the microcourse provides first-year students with critical information literacy skills needed throughout their undergraduate experience and beyond.
As an AECT intern, Peacock will participate in a coordinated program of activities focused on leadership development and association governance. Peacock also will serve on the association’s leadership development committee and will work with other interns to address an AECT organizational need. The results of their project will be presented at the association’s next international convention in 2021.
