Today's Highlights

AERA Presidential Address: Deborah Loewenberg Ball, University of Michigan
Just Dreams and Imperatives: The Power of Teaching in the Struggle for Public Education

4:35 p.m. to 5:50 p.m.
New York Hilton Midtown, Third Floor, Grand Ballroom
Session Hashtag: #AERAPres
Link to session

Teaching has enormous potential for contributing to the development of a just society and supporting the flourishing of historically marginalized groups, but it has instead often reproduced inequality and reified injustice through the discretionary spaces that are inherent in teaching. Making the transformative power of the profession more than a dream, but a practical possibility, depends on a wide range of scholarship as well as the conscious exercise of radical imagination for what teaching, and thus, public education, could be and do.

Following the address, Ball will pass the proverbial torch to AERA  President-Elect Amy Stuart Wells (Teachers College, Columbia University), who will being her term at the conclusion of the conference.

A celebratory champagne reception will follow the address.

8:15 a.m. to 9:45 a.m.
New York Hilton Midtown, Second Floor, Regent Parlor
Link to session

The purpose of this session is to disrupt traditional conceptualizations and studies of disability intersections with other marked categories, such as gender, race, social class, language background, and sexual orientation. An experimental format will be used to engage interdisciplinary scholarship that transcends the study of individual variables (e.g., cognitive factors, poverty status) or institutional factors (e.g., school size, community or school poverty) to more fully understand the inter-workings of individual, social, historical, and social forces and their consequences for educational opportunity. The session will be chaired by Alfredo J. Artiles (Arizona State University) and Beth A. Ferri (Syracuse University). Participants include Rachel Adams (Columbia University), Susan Burch (Middlebury College), and Karolyn D. Tyson (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill).

Cost-Effectiveness in Education—Mysteries and Revelations

10:35 a.m. to 12:05 p.m.
New York Hilton Midtown, Second Floor, Sutton South
Session hashtag: #AERAContributions
Link to session

Much of education research seems to be divided into two separate domains: improving educational effectiveness and practice by providing evidence of gains in standardized test scores, or enhancing social justice by
reducing inequality in educational participation, opportunities, and attainments for the least advantaged members of society. The purpose of this presentation is to suggest that we can broaden our research interests and methods to embrace both purposes of education. Examples will be given of how this can be done in whole school reform, school finance, school organization, and educational resource allocation. These examples will also suggest shifts in training with respect to methods of research preparation and application.

Creating a Culture of Improvement Through the Empowerment of Teachers

2:45 to 4:15 p.m.
New York Hilton Midtown, Second Floor, Beekman

Link to session

We live in an age in which many researchers, policymakers, and administrators have too much faith that they can put a number on a teacher’s worth. Yet, qualitative and quantitative data suggest that we can’t simply put numbers on what teachers do. Working through a series of reflections and scenarios with speaker Jose L. Vilson (The New York City Department of Education) and chair Suzanne M. Wilson (University of Connecticut), participants will reflect on what it would take to create a culture of improvement that was designed to leverage teacher agency and expertise, rather than thwart it. There will also be a section for room-wide discussion.

Exhibit Hall and Speaker's Corner

The exhibit hall in the New York Hilton Midtown, Third Floor, Americas Halls I and II, is open until 5:00 p.m. today.

The Speaker's Corner in Americas Hall II features presentations from organizations including Provalis, IEA/Hamburg Gateway, and the Center for Education Policy Research. View the full Speaker's Corner schedule here.
