January 2016

As part of the unfolding of Centennial-related initiatives as the association enters its second century, AERA Council has approved two new awards categories for 2016—Outstanding Public Communication of Education Research and Excellence in Media Reporting on Education Research—as well as a revised category—Exemplary Contributions to Practice-Engaged Research, formerly called the Relating Research to Practice Award. Revisions to the Practice-Engaged Research award were made to clarify the award’s scope and criteria.

“The timing could not be more important for launching these new awards as part of AERA’s commitment to broadening the public impact and reach of education research,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “Along with the newly introduced AERA Congressional Fellowship, these awards will help to promote deeper connections between researchers and the broader public and further expand the footprint of education research.”

The AERA Award for Outstanding Public Communication of Education Research will be presented to honor scholars exemplary in their capacity to communicate the importance of education research to the broad public, including education communities. Each year, the award will recognize a scholar who has excelled in conveying important findings and research to wide audiences and who has demonstrated the capacity to deepen understanding and appreciation of the value of education research in the public sphere.

Recipients of the award will be people who have made noteworthy contributions to reporting on findings, bodies of research, or scholarship in the field of education research in any medium of public communication.

The AERA Award for Exemplary Contributions to Practice-Engaged Research will be presented to an education research scholar or scholars in recognition of collaborative project(s) between researchers and practitioners that have had sustained and observable effects on contexts of practice. Read more

Recipients of the three awards will join the winners in other AERA awards categories in being recognized at the fourth annual AERA Awards Luncheon, April 10, at the 2016 AERA Annual Meeting.
