In order for ACT to grow it needs to be relevant. In other words, it needs to meet your needs. Please share your ideas with us! Our academic journal, The Constructivist, is one way to share ideas.
To submit an article contact our editor, Dr. Amy Malkus, at malkus.etsu.edu.
The Constructivist is now available online.
We realize that many of our constructivist colleagues cannot make it to an annual conference so we are working on new ways to connect to members. These include:
In 2010 we initiated the publication of our new ACT bi-monthly newsletter. That Newsletter has gone digital! Check out the ACT Blog
