Faculty and students from UTA’s College of Education presented sessions at the 2018 American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting in New York City in April. Their topics ranged from teaching controversial topics at a campus with open carry permitted to institutional inclusion.

Dan Robinson, Joslyn Krismer, Maria Adamuti-Trache, Yi Leaf Zhang, Catherine Robert and Craig Marroquin participated in the organization’s annual meeting, the theme of which was “The Dreams, Possibilities, and Necessity of Public Education”.

“The 2018 program theme calls us to confront the struggles for public education, considering the times in which we are living, the historical arcs that shape our present(s), and the roles we can play in the fight for justice,” according to the event literature.

Founded in 1916, AERA focuses on improving the educational process by encouraging scholarly inquiry related to education and evaluation and by promoting the dissemination and practical application of research results. The organization has more than 25,000 members from over 96 countries, 14 percent of whom are students.
