This April in New York City, the American Educational Research Association (AERA)’s Annual Meeting will feature the work of more than 60 faculty researchers, graduate students, and alumni from UConn’s Neag School of Education. An audience of 15,000 scholars, policy experts, practitioners, and AERA members will convene April 13 to 17 for a program that will include upwards of 2,500 sessions focused on the theme of “The Dreams, Possibilities, and Necessity of Public Education.”
Neag School-affiliated attendees will be presenting research papers; leading professional development seminars; taking part in roundtable and panel discussions; speaking on key issues; and accepting awards from various divisions of the AERA. Dean Gladis Kersaint will also be a featured speaker at several networking events for doctoral students, organized though the Universities 21 Forum.
