MSU Math Ed at 2019 AERA Conference

  • Mar 28, 2019

AERA 2019 Conference LogoMembers of the MSU Mathematics Education community will be presenting at the American Educational Research Association annual meeting starting Friday, April 5th. This year’s AERA conference will be held April 5th – April 9th in Toronto, Canada at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

The AERA conference is “the world’s largest gathering of education researchers and a showcase for groundbreaking, innovative studies in an array of areas.”

This year’s theme is Leveraging Education Research in a “Post-Truth” Era: Multimodal Narratives to Democratize Evidence. In 2016, the Oxford Dictionary’s Word of the Year was post-truth, defined as “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.” The organization notes they must “Push back against the post-truth paradigm by demonstrating, with all the skill and energy we can muster, the value of our inquiry and the knowledge we generate—be it in the form of linear equations; deep, rich ethnographies; or Youth Participatory Action Research. 

Mathematics education faculty and graduate students presenting this year include Tonya Bartell, Kristen Bieda, Sunghwan Byun, Corey Drake, Robert Floden, Beth Herbel-Eisenmann, Molade Osibodu, Ralph Putnam, Niral Shah, Jack Smith, and Chezare Warren. Please see the presentation schedule below.
