American Educational Research Association Conference
April 3 - 7, 2014 Add Event to your Calendar
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
2014 AERA Annual Meeting The Power of Education Research for Innovation in Practice and Policy Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Thursday, April 3 Monday, April 7, 2014. We live in exciting times in education research, where every day new ground is being forged in research design, methodology, instrumentation, and assessment. Questions regarding how people learn, what should be taught by whom, and to what ends remain at the core of our field, enveloped in a cloud of new ideas and technologies. In our rapidly changing world it is clearly time to take stock of the value of education research, of how it has spurred innovation, and of its problems and the potential solutions it can provide for improving the learning and well-being of children and adults. The theme for the 2014 Annual Meeting aims to encourage submissions that link the possibilities of education research, recognizing how evidence of varying types can be used for tackling persisting issues in education and for their innovative resolution.
