2019 Theme: Connecting Educational Organizations aero_2019_call_for_proposals.pdf Our 2019 theme asks Arizona-focused educational researchers and practitioners to engage in our annual convening as a venue for connecting and reconnecting. We hope to leverage this year’s conference as a way to come together as collective stakeholders representing a variety of educational organizations. We hope to create possibilities for new research and problem-solving that bring researchers and organizational stakeholders together to imagine new possibilities in research and educational practices, from pre-K to professional schools within Arizona, as well as nationally and globally.
This call to connect researchers with organizational stakeholders aligns with AERO’s commitment to address educational challenges through policy and community engagement and to work with diverse institutional and organizational stakeholders. With our 2019 theme we hope to focus our engagement and collaboration at the organizational level. Many organizational stakeholders are disconnected from one another and education research. This year’s AERO meeting is intended to provide a space for individual and organizational members to connect research findings to the experiences and challenges of other educational and organizational professionals.
AERO 2019 is the venue for sharing your research, learning what others in Arizona are doing, and networking with colleagues from across the state. The conference will provide an opportunity for the dissemination of a wide variety of research, evaluation, and applied projects from Arizona’s PreK-20 educational research and evaluation community. Presenters are encouraged to submit proposals for projects that involve partnerships with local organizations, highlight innovative investigations into long-standing educational challenges, apply new knowledge and test new ideas in real-world situations, present empirically-backed and field-tested best practices, as well as strategies for sharing outcomes with a wide range of audiences within and outside of Arizona. The conference welcomes submissions for paper and poster presentations, symposia, and workshops related to the conference theme.
In addition, submissions are welcome on a wide range of educational topics listed on the following page, including but not limited to:
· action research · analyses of local, state, and federal education policies · applied research for program improvement · distance and online learning · educational research in or across formal and informal settings · educational leadership · educational technology and its use in learning environments · knowledge mobilization or efforts to address the gap between research and practice · measuring student and school success · the nature of education in the twenty-first century · practitioner-researcher partnerships · program evaluation
