AERA TAR-SIG Welcome
Welcome to AERA’s web page for the Teacher-as-Researcher SIG!
We hope we will see you in Philadelphia, PA for the 2014 Annual Meeting, themed, “The Power of Education Research for Innovation in Practice and Policy.”
It’s our aim that the Teacher as Researcher SIG can be a place of sustained and positive learning in this time when high stakes testing has become the standard in classrooms across the country. This work is important because when teachers conduct research, they have the opportunity to grapple with dilemmas, try solutions, reflect on data, and generate understandings that have the potential to constructively impact students’ learning. Creating such places for inquiry is a vital step in improving the quality of our teaching and developing positive learning contexts for children.
We are seeking a record number of submissions, presentations, members and curious guests. Please encourage your colleagues and teacher friends to join our SIG, submit proposals, and attend our sessions at the Annual Meeting.
Again, we look forward to seeing you Thursday, April 3 – Monday, April 7, 2014, for the Annual Meeting.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you in Philadelphia.
Megan Blumenreich, EdD
Chair, AERA TAR-SIG
