Webinar – January 31: Working with Youth

Students’ sensemaking of safe and unsafe schooling environments vary based on a number of social-contextual factors and are largely informed by students’ multiple social identities and locations. This webinar will engage scholars in a timely and proactive discussion to consider the ways educational research can be leveraged to center the educational experiences and voices of students with particular emphasis on creating safe and nurturing learning environments for all students.

Division G Community Project: Books for Detroit Students

As we enter the season of giving, please consider supporting public school students in Detroit—a neighboring city to Toronto, where we will hold this year’s AERA annual meeting. We are collaborating with two teachers to provide more books for their students, many of which are culturally sustaining. Visit their Amazon wish lists to give a book to Ms. Thomas’ and/or Ms. Gulley’s students.

Graduate Students, apply to the AERA Division G Mentoring Pre-Conference!

AERA Division G Graduate Student Executive Committee is pleased to announce our annual Graduate Student Mentoring Pre-Conference:PreCon_Announce_Flier_2019_FINAL

PATHS OF PURPOSE AND (INNER) PEACE
Friday, April 5, 2019, 7:30 A.M.-12:00 P.M.
Toronto, Ontario, 2019 AERA Annual Meeting

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Leigh Patel, PhD, Associate Dean of Equity and Justice, University of Pittsburgh School of Education

Interested graduate students must apply by 11:59 P.M. (PST) on December 12, 2018.

The theme of this year’s Preconference, “Paths of Purpose and (Inner) Peace,” invites participants to map purposeful pathways through academia which leave one’s passions and humanity intact. Recognizing the anxieties many of us carry, we will focus attention on self-care and mindfulness strategies for the journey. And we will explore the ways in which our paths may diverge, heading toward possibilities within and outside the confines of academia.

This half-day pre-conference is designed for participants to share their experiences, ask questions and engage in discussion with scholar-mentors. Topics this year center personal, academic, and professional well-being. Graduate students attending this session will walk away with concrete strategies to navigate the academy and beyond, while maintaining personal integrity and a commitment to equity and justice.

The day will be structured so that participants can attend three different small-group conversations on topics related to well-being, academic & professional skill-building, and alternatives to the faculty-route.

Application Information

Interested participants should complete the brief application form at https://qualtrics.com/2019DivGPrecon, as well as uploading a pdf with answers to two short-response questions, by December 12th.

Applications will be reviewed on the basis of the following criteria:

● Overall quality and thoughtfulness of the application
● Demonstrated commitment to educational justice
● Degree to which the applicant would benefit from and contribute to the learning space

Division G is committed to providing an equitable and diverse representation of participants on the basis of identities, type of university, and disciplinary/research interests. Preference will be given to people who have not participated before. Space is limited and registration for participation is required. Incomplete or late applications unfortunately cannot be considered. Additionally, applicants must be current graduate students.

Final decisions will be announced by early January.
