AERA Provides Resources on the Impact of Coronavirus
AERA Provides Resources on the Impact of Coronavirus

March 2020

With the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the United States and the world, upending the personal and professional lives of millions of people, including students, educators, and education researchers, AERA is providing a breadth of resources to support researchers across fields, educators at all levels of education, and the public.

AERA's newly developed Coronavirus Pandemic and Relevant Education Research Resources page connects visitors to important resources and reinforces AERA's commitment to promoting the diffusion of and access to education research and best practices.

The initially released resource page offers open access to:

  • AERA-published journal articles relevant to transitions during the coronavirus, including distance learning, online teaching, professional development, and trauma-informed practices
  • Important policy announcements and notices—such as an AERA-endorsed statement from the American Sociological Association regarding faculty and reappointment processes during the COVID-19 crisis, and a notice from the National Science Foundation to the science community on grant deadlines and processes
  • Useful research content from our peer organizations covering a range of relevant expertise and topic areas

The association intends to continue to build and expand this resource and considers it to be a first step as additional information and resources are being gathered and vetted.

"At this critical moment, it is our responsibility as a scientific society to step up and provide accessible evidence-based resources to help navigate the uncharted times ahead,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine.

“At all levels of education, instructors, institution leaders, and policy makers are facing an unprecedented challenge, trying to ensure that high-quality and equitable teaching, learning, and scholarship continue under rapidly changing and unpredictable conditions,” Levine said. “It is our aim to support the well-being of education researchers and the educators and students who are served by their scholarship.”
