About AEPC

Using a small-group model, conferees will come together to engage in direct dialogue about some of the central concerns that both bind and divide us as Educational Psychologists. We are asking participants to come ready to discuss and debate important concepts, procedures, and theoretical tensions in the topical strand of their choice. Session facilitators are charged with hosting small group conversations with the goal of improving synergy among scholars who may not otherwise have an opportunity to directly interact. When strong synergies are already grounded in evidence, it will be possible to strengthen the messages in our journals, newsletters, and social media sites. New directions are also likely to emerge at this event?directions that will require scholars to form new design teams, seek funding, and conduct new research.

Please contact AEPC Co-Chairs, Heather Davis (hdavisbauer@mail.sdsu.edu) and Mike Middleton (michael.middleton@umb.edu) with questions. We look forward to seeing you there!
