53rd Annual Conference October 19-21, 2022

Trumbull Marriott Shelton, Trumbull, CT

Supporting Student Learning in a Dynamic Environment

Dear NERA Members,
We are so excited to share with you our plans for the upcoming conference! First and foremost, we look forward to seeing all of you in-person in Trumbull, CT this year! We have sincerely missed gathering together these past two years and cannot wait to join you all again this October. You can rest assured that we will be putting several new protocols in place according to the most recent health guidelines to ensure a comfortable and safe environment for everyone.
That said, we’re thrilled to announce the 2022 NERA conference theme: “Supporting Student Learning in a Dynamic Environment”. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted instruction and student learning in so many ways. Across the globe, millions of students took classes from home or through a hybrid environment for an extended period. Research shows that there is significant unfinished learning compared to pre-pandemic averages. The field of education is hungry for research-based initiatives and solutions to support student learning and well-being in this dynamic educational environment.
The Call for Proposals is now available. We hope you will submit your research, coordinated symposia, and workshops that are aligned with the following preliminary content strands:

Unfinished and Remote Learning ChallengesDiversity, Equity, and InclusionMeasurement and Psychometrics
Research MethodsEducational Policy ChallengesP-12 Educators as Researchers
Higher EducationMiscellaneous 

We also hope you will consider volunteering to be a chair or discussant at this year’s conference.
