Dr. Boyd Bradbury, Acting Dean of the College of Education and Human Services and Professor of Educational Leadership and Curriculum & Instruction, presented at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. earlier this week.

Dr. Bradbury’s presentation was entitled, A Case Study of Midwestern Teacher Candidate Placements in Rural South Africa. AERA, founded in 1916, is concerned with improving the educational process by encouraging scholarly inquiry related to education and evaluation and by promoting the dissemination and practical application of research results.

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. Dr. Bradbury has presented 10 times previously at AERA Annual Meetings, and he has been a reviewer for AERA for several years.
