Kremen Faculty Present Their Research at the AERA

Faculty do not just teach in the classroom, many are also researchers.

Research is profoundly important for the university and our students. Many of our faculty members conduct educational research alongside their teaching responsibilities. Research is a vessel which allows our faculty members to dive into a topic that they are passionate about. Research has been shown to enhance teaching as students benefit from having a faculty member that is an expert in their chosen topic and who can provide them with current subject matter.

The American Educational Research Association (AERA)’s Annual Meeting is this weekend, from April 13-17, in New York City. AERA is the largest national professional organization devoted to the scientific study of education. The AERA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of scholars in the field of education research. Showcasing ground-breaking, innovative and multidisciplinary studies in a diverse array of areas. AERA connects all fields of educational research.
