While school is out for summer…
Learn how to advocate for education research!
AERA is offering two webinars – with one geared toward graduate students – this month to help you make the case for education research in district offices while Congress is on recess in August.
AERA Webinar: Speaking Up for Education Research

Gain knowledge on how to most effectively communicate the importance of education research to congressional offices from AERA Director of Government Relations Juliane Baron and Program Associate Christy Talbot. This webinar will offer specific strategies and advice on how to best prepare for such a meeting, develop your message, and follow up in a meaningful way. It will include updates about current federal education policy discussions to help identify what information offices or members find most useful and how to talk about your research in ways that will be most compelling to them.

The webinar will include time for Q&A.

AERA Webinar: Engaging Graduate Students In Education Research Advocacy

AERA Director of Government Relations Juliane Baron will be joined by current and recent graduate students Megan Austin, University of Minnesota; Amy Li, Ph.D., University of Northern Colorado; and Federick Ngo, Ph.D., University of Southern California. Austin, Li, and Ngo all participated in advocacy training and visits on Capitol Hill as part of the Catalyzing Advocacy in Science and Engineering (CASE) workshop convened by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). This webinar will provide information on how graduate students can be involved in science policy and first-hand accounts of representing AERA on their Hill visits.

The webinar will include time for Q&A.

AERA 2017 – State of the Nation: K–12 e-Learning in Canada

The eleventh session I’m blogging at the 2017 annual meeting of the American Education Research Association (AERA) is:

State of the Nation: K–12 e-Learning in Canada

  • In Event: Roundtable Session 31
    In Roundtable Session: 69.056-17 – International Studies

Mon, May 1, 12:25 to 1:55pm, Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center, Ballroom Level, Hemisfair Ballroom 1

Abstract

Current research in K-12 online learning in Canada has focused on defining distance learning and its current strengths and weaknesses. Yet, the proliferation of e-learning has led to the emergence of new instructional strategies and practices for teachers in online and onsite classrooms. For these emerging practices little is known empirically, only anecdotally, as research into these practices has been limited or nonexistent, particularly in Canada. In this session, you will discover that all provinces and territories in Canada have some level of K-12 online learning, while many have some form of regulation related to K-12 online learning. However, few provinces and territories have any regulations related to blended learning; and the level of blended learning activity varies between jurisdictions.

As I was a part of this session, I didn’t take notes to be engaged in the participatory nature of the roundtable.  I do have the hand-out that I used for the session at:
