In a few weeks, the largest conference of education researchers (the American Education Research Association – AERA – about 20,000-30,000 members) will be coming to my hometown of Philadelphia, PA for four days of sharing research, networking, and learning about what is new and interesting in the field of education.
I’ll be participating in several talks and events this year, including:
- Black, White, and Tested All Over: Racialized Differences in Licensure Exam Experiences – Thursday, April 3, 12:00 to 1:30pm, Philadelphia Convention Center, Terrrace Level, Terrace III (Roundtable session- Petchauer & Baker-Doyle)
- Rumor Has It: Investigating Teacher Licensure Exam Advice Networks – Saturday, April 5, 2:45 to 4:15pm, Philadelphia Convention Center, 100 Level, 109A (Paper session- Baker-Doyle & Petchauer)
- Together in Struggle: Supporting Youth and Community Organizing Through Engaged Scholarship – Friday, April 4, 4:00 to 6:00pm, South Philadelphia High School, 2101 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia, PA
- Imagine a School: How Researchers Can Support Community-Based Groups’ Visions for Philadelphia Public Schools – Sunday, April 6, 2:15 to 3:45pm, Philadelphia Convention Center, 100 Level, 124 (Symposium)
