NETA Educational Research Conference 2014

Posted in : Education

The NETA Scholars is organizing a whole-day workshop for educational researchers. We encourage all emerging and established educational researchers to participate in this workshop to be held on Saturday, April 12, 2014 at Duquesne University, Pittsburgh.

The workshop aims to offer a forum for participating researchers (1) to network and seek collaboration with colleagues in their research areas, (2) to present their work and receive feedback, (3) to provide emerging researchers mentorship opportunities for professional growth. In light of the organization’s mission to support “critically-minded and socially-aware academics to collaborate, generate, and disseminate innovative research to enhance the quality of life for people everywhere in the world”, the workshop organizers welcome all kinds of submissions (theoretical, practical, and empirical) from all critical areas of educational research regardless of methodological orientations (qualitative, quantitative, mixed-method). The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to, the following areas of education research:

  • Socio-economic realities of education
  • Educational equity and justice
  • Education of disenfranchised populations
  • Achievement indicators and growth patterns of diverse populations
  • Diversity (race, ethnicity, gender, religion, etc.,) and education
  • Teacher education (pre and in-service)
  • Curriculum and instruction
  • Educational measurement
  • Educational psychology
  • Individual differences in education
  • Teaching methodologies
  • Foreign/second language pedagogy
  • Educational leadership/management
  • Multicultural education
  • Educational technology
  • NCLB/Race to the Top
  • Common core standards
  • Emerging scholars (needs, expectations, etc.,) in educational research
  • Non-native speaker scholars in educational research
  • School counseling
  • Special education

The proposals, which should not exceed 400 words, must clearly describe the purpose (weather being a theory or method) of the project to be presented. Research proposals must describe the research methods (hypotheses/questions, data collection/analysis techniques, etc.,) and the results, clearly enumerating pertinent pedagogical implications. All proposals will be evaluated by anonymous reviewers for inclusion in the workshop program.
