AERA is charging a course fee of $40 each. Registration includes not only the four-hour real-time class experience but also continued on-demand access to the recorded course through the AERA Virtual Research Learning Center (VRLC). 

The courses focus on topics in quantitative and qualitative research methods, with some courses using examples from publicly available datasets such as the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP). Designed to reach participants at multiple skill levels, the courses are appropriate for graduate students, early career scholars, and other researchers who seek to increase their knowledge and enhance research skills. 

“We are so pleased to again offer such high-quality professional development and training opportunities, in particular for graduate students and early scholars,” said AERA Executive Director Felice J. Levine. “Our excellent faculty and the content and discussion they will offer will be especially valuable to our next generation of researchers.” 

George Wimberly, AERA’s director of professional development, designed and leads this series. The courses include:
