UCSB Educators to Present Research at National Conference

Thursday, April 17, 2003 - 17:00
Santa Barbara, CA

Faculty and graduate students from UC Santa Barbara's Gevirtz Graduate School of Education will be presenting research papers at the annual American Educational Research Association (AERA) meeting in Chicago April 21-25 on a wide range of educational issues concerning K-12 students and teachers.

AERA is the most prominent international professional organization with the primary goal of advancing educational research and its practical application; more than 40 of UCSB's researchers and students will participate in this year's conference, which is titled "Accountability for Educational Quality: Shared Responsibility."

UCSB faculty conduct research on pressing educational matters, such as projects related to teaching to an increasingly ethnically diverse student population, and the best methods for teaching teachers how best to use technology in the classroom.

"Gevirtz School researchers and students are doing valuable work in many areas: school accountability, literacy, math and science education, leadership, and much more," said Jules Zimmer, Dean of the Gevirtz School. "AERA is the nation's most important gathering for education researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners, and our most important opportunity to have an impact on education practice. For many of our students, it is also their first chance to take part in a national professional conference."
