Preparing for Virtual AERA 2020

Message from Div J VP Torres

The AERA Council continues to meet and provide guidance about how the Virtual AERA 2020 conference will transpire. Though not everything is in place, I want to take a moment and update Division J members on what to expect.

AERA Office will be announcing the programs that will be conducted virtually during the days that the meeting would have taken place (April 17 to 21) and programs that will be offered those dates. Final arrangements are being made for AERA to provide the platform for those virtual sessions as well as information about how accepted research paper sessions will upload papers online. As you may be experiencing on-campus, getting the infrastructure set up takes time.

Division J Executive Committee met virtually last week and discussed that the Business Meeting at AERA goals would not be the same in a virtual format. We recognize that the face-to-face meeting was also a networking opportunity for Division J members. For this reason the Division will not hold a virtual business meeting. Instead we will use the PEN Newsletter to make the announcements and award winners we normally make at the business meeting. Look for the PEN Newsletter in the coming weeks! I want to personally thank Nicole Wilson the PEN Editor for being flexible this semester.

As a Division and an Association, there are still more decisions and plans that need to be enacted. Please be patient as announcements roll out in the next weeks. While disappointed that we will not see each other, I sense that we are all experiencing a new normal on our campuses and can appreciate all the issues that come with these types of change in plans.

Vasti Torres, Division J Vice President
