SIG Purpose
The purpose of the SIG is to promote and maintain discussions about the latest approaches, theories, methods, and practices relevant to educational research philosophy and methodology (e.g., quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods) and to generate and disseminate knowledge about effective practices for teaching educational research. The SIG also will promote dialog and collaboration with other social/behavioral science fields in discussing, generating, and promoting advances in research practices.
Message from the SIG Chair

Welcome to the Professors of Educational Research SIG

Together, let's leverage our role as academics who prepare future generations of researchers to ask better questions and arrive at better answers about how theory, methods, relationships, and ethics in the teaching and practice of research are complicit in maintaining the status quo in ways that have contributed to the current moment we face as a nation, and the ways in which they are disruptive with the aim of constructing better knowledge that can aid in dismantling violence against Communities of Color, racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, Islamaphobia, nativism, anti-immigrant stances, and more. 

Together, let's engage in critical pláticas, or conversations, about what research is, how it contributes to knowledge construction, how it unnecessarily or necessarily leaves out some voices but not others, and what mechanisms it might offer to check our biases.

Together, let's identify research methodologies that have democratizing potential and explore how we might engage these in our teaching and research.
