About this book

In a professional world that has a tradition of the “good old boy” network, women long have fought for recognition in the educational technology field. In this book authors discuss the women in their own lives who have made the difference for them in their professional development. A group of 31 individuals from the USA, Canada, Northern Cyprus, the UK, and South Korea were asked to be part of this endeavor. The breadth of the list was intended to bring together as many perspectives as possible. Some stories included in this book are deeply private, others offer historical perspectives of women's roles in educational technology, while others focus on mentoring. This book is intended as a resource for all individuals in the field of educational technology, instructional design, and learning design at a national and international level.
