Faculty, staff and graduate students

Researchers from Boise State’s College of Education are back after visiting San Antonio, Texas, where they attended the annual meeting for the American Educational Research Association (AERA) April 27-May 1.

Thirty faculty and staff, along with three graduate students, presented in 30 different sessions on topics ranging from “Enhancing STEM Major’s College Trigonometry Learning Through Building Mobile Apps” to “Online Course Development Among University and College Instructors.”

“AERA is the premier conference for educational research. It was fantastic to have so many faculty and graduate students in San Antonio sharing their research. Seeing our faculty and students playing on the big stage helps our colleagues at other institutions realize what we already know: There is great energy and expertise in the College of Education because we have incredible people at Boise State.” said Keith Thiede, associate dean for Research and Advanced Programs.

The theme for this year’s annual meeting was “Knowledge to action: Achieving the promise of equal educational opportunity.” There were over 2,500 sessions scheduled with over 15,000 individuals attending the conference. Next year’s AERA conference will be held April 2018 in New York.
