More than 15,000 researchers and experts in the field will convene April 27 – May 1 in San Antonio for the AERA Annual Meeting, Knowledge to Action—Achieving the Promise of Equal Educational Opportunity.

The 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 to encounter ideas and data that will shape tomorrow's education practices and policies, and where to connect with leading thinkers from the U.S. and around the world.

TERC staff will be there to participate is symposiums, roundtables, and poster sessions.
