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.
