The AERA Professional Development and Training Committee has issued a call for course proposals for the AERA 2013 Annual Meeting.
The committee aims to offer a program of courses at the meeting that will be of significant value to education researchers. Professional development courses may provide training in specific research methods and skills, cover significant research issues in related disciplines, emphasize specialized areas, address professional development issues, focus on research for the improvement of practice, or examine recent methodological and substantive developments in education research. Courses may be designed at basic, intermediate, or advanced levels. Participants may include advanced graduate students and early career scholars, as well as more senior researchers or practitioners interested in being stronger users and consumers of research. The committee encourages proposals that both originate from and are directed to diverse groups such as women and underrepresented racial and ethnic minorities. Any questions may be directed to George L. Wimberly, AERA director of professional development.
PD course proposals should be submitted via the 2013 Annual Meeting submission system, which will open on June 1 and will close at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on July 22. To make a submission, after the system opens log into the My AERA area on the AERA website and click on the 2013 AERA Annual Meeting Online Portal link.
