Today is the official start to the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). Over the next 5 days researchers from around the world will be sharing their work and networking. If, like me, you are unable to attend in person, you can participate through twitter using the hashtag #AERA2012
Using the AERA Program pdf I created a spreadsheet containing a list of the 2012 AERA research that will be presented by Ontario Education Researchers. Ontario is well represented once again (see last year’s post on Ontario Education Research at AERA) at AERA with 261 presentations by Ontario Researchers. Of those presentations, 251 presentations include Ontario University researchers, 8 presentations include Ontario School Board researchers and 8 presentations by Ontario Ministry of Education researchers.
Although the majority of presentations are roundtables, paper sessions, symposia, invited sessions and poster sessions, Ontario researchers will also be featured in fireside chats, presidential sessions, business meetings and demonstrations/performances.
This year the most common themes for presentation are:
- Curriculum Studies (25)
- Learning and Instruction (20)
- Administration Organization & Leadership (17)
- Social Context of Education (15)
- Teaching and Teacher Education (12)
- Indigenous Peoples of the Americas (10)
- Canadian Society for the Study of Education (9)
Although I am unable to attend, I have set up an archive to capture the tweets connected to #AERA2012 and will provide a few summaries of the activity and resources that are shared over the next few days.
Good luck to all the presenters!
