Josh Goldman attended the Annual 2012 American Educational Research Association (AERA) workshop.
This workshop is designed to build the talent pool of undergraduate students who plan to pursue doctorate degrees in education research or in disciplines and fields that examine education issues. Applicants are sought who have potential and interest in pursuing careers as education researchers, faculty members, or other professionals who contribute to the research field.
The workshop, led by junior and senior scholars, gives fellows an overview of how education research is designed across fields, how quantitative and qualitative research methods are used in studies, and how research is applied to education policy and practice.
Below are his comments about his experience and on the whiteboard in the Department of Education is a summary of the research he presented. Josh is happy to speak with anyone interested about this opportunity. You can contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“At the American Education Research Association's Undergraduate Student Research Workshop, I connected with about twenty-five other college students and a variety of leading education scholars. In addition to attending conference sessions – where I was able to see several of the authors we read in our classes! – I participated in several workshops about the nature of education research and the process of connecting with education grad schools. I value the connections that I made with senior scholars as well as with my undergraduate peers. It was a great privilege to attend!”
