AERA 2021

April 8 - 12, 2021

The American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of scholars in the field of education research. It is a showcase for ground-breaking, innovative studies in a diverse array of areas -- from early education through higher education, from digital learning to second language literacy. It is where we go to encounter ideas and data that will shape tomorrow's education practices and policies, and where we go to connect with leading thinkers from the U.S. and around the world.
