News & Announcements

Email Newsletter Aug 2021

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. 


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!
