The AERA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of scholars in the field of education research, showcasing innovative studies in topics as diverse as STEM, social justice, game-based learning, diversity on campus, and professional development. More than 15,000 scholars will be in attendance. The AERA is a national research society that seeks to advance knowledge about education, encourage scholarly inquiry related to education, and promote the use of research to improve education and serve the public good.
Notably, Suzanne Wilson, Neag Endowed Professor of Teacher Education, was named by the AERA as one of 14 2017 AERA Fellows. AERA Fellows, nominated by their peers, are selected on the basis of their notable and sustained research achievements. Wilson is joined by 13 other scholars from across the country, who will all be inducted on April 28 during the AERA 2017 Annual Meeting.
