POST-CONFERENCE OPPORTUNITIES

NERA 2021 Post-Conference Submission Opportunities and NEERO 2022 Call for Submissions


Dear NERA Members,

Thank you to all those who helped make the virtual 2021 Annual Conference such an amazing success and we hope you will consider participating next year. This message is to let you know about some upcoming opportunities now that the 2021 Annual Conference is over, but to also think about your next potential presentation opportunity.

2021 Lorne H. Woollatt Distinguished Paper Award Announcement
 
Presenters at the 2021 NERA conference are strongly encouraged to submit an original research paper (no more than 20 pages) in competition for the Lorne H. Woollatt Distinguished Paper Award. It should meet the criteria of being an empirical/inferential or theoretically-based study with supporting data, and may include case studies. This award is named in honor of Lorne H. Woollatt, a distinguished New York State educator and an active member of NERA. The winner of the award receives a $500 stipend to present their research paper at an invited session of the Consortium of State and Regional Educational Research Associations (SRERA) at the 2022 American Educational Research Association (AERA) Annual Meeting (to be held in San Diego, CA).
 
This year’s award will be given to the best paper presented by one or more authors at the 2021 NERA conference. Each paper goes through a blind review by the award committee. Each submitted paper is scored on the importance of the topic and need for the study; the quality of the research design, data analysis, results reported, and conclusions; and the contribution the research findings make to the knowledge-base of the field.
 
The Lorne H. Woollatt Distinguished Paper Award committee invites participants of the 2021 NERA conference to enter presented papers meeting the research study requirements described above. Please email two copies by Friday, November 5 to the committee Chair, Rochelle Michel (rochelle.michel@gmail.com). One copy should be a Blind copy without any author identifying information on the title page and one copy that includes a title page with the names, affiliations, and email addresses of each author. We very much look forward to receiving your paper by November 5.
