Some 65 University of Florida College of Education faculty and graduate students were among the 15,000 scholars from around the world who converged on San Antonio, Texas, from April 27 to May 1, for the 2017 Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association to examine critical issues of education research and public policy.
The AERA meeting is the largest gathering of international scholars in the field of education research. More UF education faculty and graduate students, from multiple disciplines, attend AERA’s annual meeting than any other professional gathering. This year’s UF contingent included 28 College of Education faculty members and 37 graduate students in education.

UF Ed Tech faculty researcher Pasha Antonenko, shown adjusting the EEG headgear of a study subject in his near-education lab, was ultra-busy at the AERA conference with 13 presentations and sessions.
