Conversations Around the Collection and Use of Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Data


8:15 a.m. - 10:15 a.m.
Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center
Ballroom Level, Room 302 A&B

Link to Session

Increasingly, data are gathered on sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI). For example, federal data collection agencies have listed guidelines for how to ask about SOGI, and some agencies (e.g., CDC) release individual-level data on youth sexual orientation. The National Center for Education Statistics is beginning to include SOGI items in its High School Longitudinal Study (HSLS). Research societies and scientific associations are examining the best methods to collect sexual orientation and gender identity from members. As these data collection efforts proliferate and evolve, this panel will discuss topics including (a) the history of federal interagency efforts to include SOGI item guidance, (b) the development of the new SOGI items in HSLS, (c) best practices for SOGI data collection, (d) considerations around ensuring SOGI data validity with large datasets, and (e) how research societies are capturing and collecting gender identity. Following the panelists’ presentations, the audience will have time to engage panelists in a Q&A session. Session participants include Joseph Cimpian (New York University), Elise Christopher (NCES/IES), Emily Greytak (GLSEN), and sj Miller (NYU Steinhardt - The Metropolitan Center).

Session participants include Patricia Hill Collins (University of Maryland - College Park), Joseph Cimpian (New York University), Kimberly Scott (Arizona State University), and Anthony Brown (The University of Texas at Austin).

12:25 p.m. - 1:55 p.m.
Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center
Ballroom Level, 301 A&B

Link to Session

This session will focus on the individual and collective issues associated with immigration, refugee, detained, and undocumented children and families. How do we imagine schools as boundless in the context they engage and the opportunities they can afford for all children, and especially for children who enter the country? What is the status of research and how is it informing change for these children and their families? What is the role of schools, and what is needed in policy and practice to mediate the hardship and complexity of both the process and effect of policies? How are borders made more permeable and open for schools to effect change? Session participants include Saskia Sassen (Columbia University) and Rogelio Saenz (The University of Texas at San Antonio).



Racial Conciliation, Interest Convergence, and the Role of Education and Schooling


2:15 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center
Ballroom Level, 302 A&B

Link to Session

This session will examine the role of education research and practice within the context of current debates around race and racial equity. It will address three questions: Is it possible to measure racial progress and chart a path toward further progress? Are racial conciliation and interest convergence panaceas to quell discontent and to avoid difficult issues, or are they viable pathways to promote access and justice? What is the role of educational research, practice, and policy in this discussion? Session participants include James Earl Davis (Temple University), Stella M. Flores (New York University), and Daniel Losen (University of California – Los Angeles).


Technology, Digital Media, and Implications for Learning Sciences


2:15 p.m. - 3:45 p.m.
Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center
Ballroom Level, 301 A&B

Link to Session

This session will focus on emerging technologies and their uses in epistemological framings, teaching, and the construction of knowledge. Technology and digital media have the potential to play a powerful role in shaping educational research, practice and policy. This power is evident when we consider how recent social movements have developed. Current complexities such as the digital divide will be considered in terms of how technology and digital media both afford and constrain teaching and learning. The session will consider how we can harness technology and digital media developments to the benefit of a more equitable educational agenda? Session participants include James Paul Gee (Arizona State University) and Louis M. Gomez (University of California – Los Angeles).
