AERAEach year, the American Educational Research Association Annual Meeting represents the world's largest gathering of education researchers and is a showcase for groundbreaking, innovative research. We are looking forward to the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting held April 21-26, 2022.

Our faculty, students and alumni will be busy presenting, learning, and exchanging ideas. Use this guide to follow and support CU Boulder researchers and their work. This year, we have CU Boulder faculty, students and alumni featured in over 90 sessions! 

"I am excited, though not surprised, to see so many AERA sessions featuring our incredible faculty and doctoral students," said Kathy Schultz, dean of the CU Boulder School of Education. "We are a small, yet powerful, school with a wide reach and our impact on the field is captured by the range of sessions in this year’s program.

"I know many people are wrestling with whether to be in person or to participate in the conference virtually. I hope that whatever format you choose for this year, that it is a rewarding and generative experience for you."
