June 2022 Email Newsletter

Dear Educational Change SIG Members,

Tomorrow is the last day of my children’s school year and perhaps like many of you, I am moved to reflect on both what a difficult year this has been and all the tremendous educators who show up every day to teach and bring love and joy to so many.  As a reminder of these efforts and their meaningfulness, I recommend this crowd sourced poem from National Public Radio a week or so ago - a true piece of art that reminds us what is at stake and how educators make a difference. https://www.npr.org/2022/05/31/1102065218/crowdsourced-poem-teachers-kwame-alexander 

Additionally, the June issue of Lead the Change features Trinity College’s Dr. Elise Castillo, and a doctoral corner features one of our wonderful travel award winners, Kate Kennedy of USC. 

Below, I have also included (if you can believe it!) the call for AERA 2023! We are so excited to see all your wonderful proposals and to celebrate your work! Proposals due: 7/27/22

AERA 2023 Annual Meeting Call for Submissions

We are pleased to officially inform you that the AERA 2023 Annual Meeting Call for Submissions opened earlier this month on the AERA website. We encourage you to consider a paper or session submission to the ED Change SIG!. The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM, Pacific Time, on July 27, 2022.

The 2023 Annual Meeting is dual component: place-based in Chicago, Illinois and on a virtual platform. When you advance a paper or session submission, you will also indicate whether you wish your paper or session, if accepted, to be presented in-person in Chicago or virtually. Both components of the meeting will offer participants rich opportunities to present their work and network with attendees. 

The overall theme is "Interrogating Consequential Education Research in Pursuit of Truth." We hope that you will consider a submission in response to the Call. The theme advanced by AERA President H. Richard Milner, IV, and Co-Chairs Lori Delale, Mark Gooden, and Ebony McGee, invites AERA members and other Annual Meeting attendees to push the boundaries of ideas, methods, and collaborations to achieve innovations and novelty in studying and advancing quality consequential research.

We are looking forward to creating an Annual Meeting that will attract broad participation worldwide. This meeting will provide an opportunity to share research, assess the state of our knowledge, and explore how our work can become more relevant to diverse communities, publics, practitioners, and policy makers.

Please submit and join us in April 2023 in Chicago or virtually.Jennie

Dear Educational Change SIG Members,

I don’t know about you, but it seems one minute ago I was sitting in the last Ed Change Session at AERA and the next I was cheering on all the incredible graduates in our field. Now that the official school year has ended, robes worn and grades delivered, I wanted to just once again express my gratitude to: 

  1. The whole SIG team for their tremendous work and dedication to make what might have been the most complex logistical AERAs work beautifully (we appreciate you!) 
  2. Sarah Fine, Carol Battle, and Krista Galleberg from the High Tech High Graduate School of Education for sharing some of their experiences and insights with us about the changing nature of teacher preparation. 
  3. All of you! Thank you for collegiality, brilliance, and dedication to the SIG! 

Additionally, we have attached the Lead the Change from our emerging scholar award winner Dr. Lauren Bailes, and a doctoral corner from one of our doctoral student winners, Dr. Reut Liraz. Our other winner, Dr. Cynthia Wise’s, doctoral corner piece from 2021 is also attached.  

Send news, jobs, publication calls - what have you - we are here to share all things ED Change!

Finally, please don’t hesitate to reach out with requests, ideas, or comments. We want the SIG to meet your needs and can do that more effectively if we know what they are. In the meantime, I hope each of you have some time ahead for respite and recharging. 

Jennie

Dear Educational Change SIG Members,

Thinking of each of you on this blustery March Morning.  Looking forward to seeing you on screen and/or in person in April.  There are also several Calls from our members, a reminder about an upcoming Mentoring Session on April 7th and a new Lead the Change with Dr. Rebecca Lowenhaupt. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AERA Business Meeting (April 25th, 6-7:30pm PDT) 

In addition to welcoming one another and reviewing our year, we have the privilege of hearing from Dr. Sarah Fine from High Tech High, who along with a number of aspiring teachers will speak on

Teacher Preparation for the Schools We Need: A Conversation with Staff and Students from the San Diego Teacher Residency at the High Tech High Graduate School of Education

We will be in person at the Grand Hyatt and will figure out ways to stream so all members who wish to attend may do so. Please join us! 

Calls from Members 

BERASAGE International Handbook: Call for Chapters (details attached) 

The British Educational Research Association and SAGE Publishers have agreed a contract to publish a two volume 60 chapter work provisionally titled The BERASAGE International Handbook of Research-Informed Education Policy and Practice. The editors of the handbook are Dominic Wyse (University College London – UCL), Vivienne Baumfield (University of Exeter), Nicole Mockler (University of Sydney) and Martin Reardon (East Carolina University – ECU). The aim of the work is to provide a comprehensive contemporary account of research in the field of research-informed education policy and practice (see appendix for plain language outline of the themes of the work).  

Call for Manuscripts on Teacher Education in the Context of Teacher Shortages

The manuscripts are due June 20th.

https://think.taylorandfrancis.com/special_issues/new-educator-teacher-education/?utm_source=TFO&utm_medium=cms&utm_campaign=JPG15743

Dissertation Call 

My name is Nicole Shanley, and I am a doctoral student at UNC Charlotte. 

My study seeks to investigate and address the lack of a rubric to guide and support the integration of Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies (CSP) and practices in online instruction. To be responsive to the cultural diversity in the US public school system and the growing demand for online educator preparation, there is a need for the integration of CSP in rubrics that support the design of online learning. Currently, our online evaluation rubrics do not incorporate any guidance for including CSP into online learning.

With this in mind, I am looking to conduct a Delphi study with college faculty throughout the United States who have expertise in Culturally Sustaining Pedagogies (CSP). Do you have any contacts or recommendations for professors that you think would be a good fit?

I have created a Google Form to help collect the contact information of potentially interested participants.

Mentoring Session on April 7th

Graduate students and early career scholars can receive feedback and support on their AERA presentations.  

When: Thursday, April 7th at 4pm EST (on zoom)  

How: We will create small groups (2-3) of participants who will be paired with a more advanced scholar based on interests and knowledge. Each participant will present their research (in whatever form it is currently in) and the rest of the group and scholar will provide feedback in 20-minute blocks. There will also be time for general Q&A and debriefing.  

Why: Because we have all been there and want AERA to be the most positive learning and networking experience it can be. 

If interested in participating, please fill out this short survey -  by April 1

Dear Educational Change SIG Members,

It is hard to believe that the summer is almost over and a new school term is upon us. I know for many this time has brought a range of emotions and potentially fears regarding what lies ahead.  I send wishes of strength and care to you and please reach out if there are ways the SIG can support you, your colleagues, and/or students over the months ahead. Now is the time to show solidarity and care for each other and to fight for policies that will help to keep us all, and especially the most vulnerable among us, safe. 

AERA

Thanks to all who submitted proposals and/or agreed to be reviewers! We appreciate you! Thank you too to Osnat Fellus who has worked so hard to facilitate this process. 

AERA reviews are due on September 3rd. We appreciate your thoughtful reviews and willingness to support your colleagues in their research. 

We will send out awards information in September and opportunities to engage in mentoring and other workshop opportunities!

Lead the Change

Attached and online is our August 2021 Lead the Change featuring the absolutely wonderful Dr. Miriam D.  Ezzani.  Don't miss out!

Dear Educational Change SIG Members,

I will keep this month’s update brief (an AERA reminder, an appreciation, a new Lead the Change with Dr. Chad Lochmiller, and a new Doctoral corner with Cynthia Wise) and hope that you are finding more time for yourself and non-work related activities.  

AERA

First, (and somewhat antithetical to my prior point), just a quick reminder that AERA proposals are due in 4 days on July 20th. We hope you will submit to the SIG and encourage others to do the same.  The revised call is below. 

The Educational Change SIG conceptualizes educational change broadly. The EdChange SIG is open to papers that use various frameworks from across disciplines (e.g., organizational behavior, organizational theory, institutional theory, adult learning and development, critical analysis etc.) and methods (qualitative, quantitative, and mixed). We are also open to papers that focus on theoretical discussions in the field of educational change. With that said, the SIG is particularly interested in research situated in practice and facilitates opportunities to elevate the work of educators, community members, and others and their role in improvement and change. Critical perspectives as well as work that centers diversity, equity, and inclusion in the US and internationally are also of great interest. 

Appreciation

A big Ed Change Shout Out to Cynthia Wise who is serving as our social media coordinator extraordinaire! We appreciate you and are so thankful for all the work you are doing to keep our social media updated, informative, and inclusive.  Follow us (@EdChangeSIG) and Cynthia (@cwisenews) on twitter  

and facebook (https://www.facebook.com/AERAEducationalChangeSIG155)- you will be glad you did!

Lead the Change

Attached and online is our July 2021 Lead the Change featuring  Dr. Chad Lochmiller. And, many thanks for Int’l Ed News for publishing all our LTC Issues on their site.  Visit our website to catch up on all our LTC Issues.

Doctoral Corner

Dear Educational Change SIG Members, 

Happy (almost?) summer to you all. I do hope all members can take a bit of time for centering, self-care, and rejuvenation after what has been, and continues to be, a difficult time for so many. 

It is hard to believe but we are in the throes of inviting reviewers (and soon proposals) for AERA 2022. Keep an eye out for the invitation in your email box - we appreciate your willingness to serve as we quite literally could not do it without you!

Looking ahead to the proposals, we have revised our call for the SIG and encourage you to share it with colleagues and students. The more members we have, the more slots we get to fill and amplify your and their work! 

The Educational Change SIG conceptualizes educational change broadly. The EdChange SIG is open to papers that use various frameworks from across disciplines (e.g., organizational behavior, organizational theory, institutional theory, adult learning and development, critical analysis etc.) and methods (qualitative, quantitative, and mixed). We are also open to papers that focus on theoretical discussions in the field of educational change. With that said, the SIG is particularly interested in research situated in practice and facilitates opportunities to elevate the work of educators, community members, and others and their role in improvement and change. Critical perspectives as well as work that centers diversity, equity, and inclusion in the US and internationally are also of great interest. 

In addition to being posted here, it is also available on our updated website.  A great big thanks to Alex Lamb who has been working on it! 

Volunteer

Thank you to everyone who already said they would help! We are so lucky to have you in our community and would love even greater participation. If you have an idea, suggestion, wish for the SIG that you would like to spearhead we are all in!  Just email Jennie Weiner @ jennie.weiner@uconn.edu with your name, contact information, and interests. We can’t wait to work with you! 

Nominate and/or Apply for an Award

Please check our website for $ via travel grants for students, early career and student researcher awards. We plan to add some new awards this year (working on it!) and hope you will either apply or nominate someone wonderful!

Recruit a Friend 

The health and financial stability of our SIG (and slots for AERA) is dependent on our membership. During this year, we ask that everyone recruits new members (We love doctoral students!).  We will be adding new awards and mentoring opportunities throughout the year to support these efforts. 

We are getting some swag to celebrate new members (and those who recruit them!) - so let us know if you are new (jennie.weiner@uconn.edu)! 

Per AERA for SIG Membership: Non-members, please click here to become a member of AERA and one or more SIGs or to renew your AERA and SIG memberships.

Dear Educational Change SIG Members,

Greetings from the Northeastern U.S. where spring has sprung and many of us are enjoying a chance to be outside and see the flowers blooming. In the spirit of renewal, I would like to introduce you to your new SIG leadership team!

Jennie Weiner, Chair

Olga O. Fellus, Program Chair

Corinne Brion, Secretary/Treasurer

Alexandra Lamb, Lead the Change Editor

We are so lucky and grateful to the entire SIG community and the continued commitment, involvement and orientation towards inclusivity we have each experienced as members. We also want to give a particular shout out to Kristin Kew,  Mirelle Hubers, Na Mi Bang and Min Jung Kim who have served the SIG upholding our mission and values at every step of the way.

We will be rolling out a variety of new initiatives this year to build on our already strong foundations. To make our work a success we need your help!

As the school year winds down, we, your Ed Change SIG leadership team, are hard at work continuing the great work of our predecessors. This includes supporting the most inclusive and democratically oriented SIG as possible. To achieve this, we need your help and support. We are looking to recruit all those who are ready, willing, and able to help the SIG grow and evolve over the coming years. In particular, we need individuals who could:

  1. Support and build our social media and communication efforts
  2. Help us build stronger community connections across our partners and others
  3. Have other great ideas to make our SIG better and more inclusive!

If you are interested in this work, please email Jennie Weiner @ jennie.weiner@uconn.edu with your name, contact information, and interests. We can’t wait to work with you!

Prep for AERA

Please sign up to be a volunteer reviewer for our SIG for the AERA 2022 (info here). Additionally, the theme for 2022 is here - submissions will be here before you know it - so get those good ed change ideas flowing!!

Recruit a Friend

The health and financial stability of our SIG depends on our membership. During this year, we ask that everyone recruits new members (We love doctoral students!).  We will be adding new awards and mentoring opportunities throughout the year to support these efforts.
