Meeting Description:

The CAERDA Annual International Conference serves as an open forum for interdisciplinary discussion and scholarly exchange among educational researchers and practitioners from around the world. The participants, with or without an ethnic Chinese background, present their current research and draw implications for issues related to CAERDA’s mission.

The program primarily consists of presentations selected through a blind peer-review process. In addition, there are invited speakers, symposia, and panel discussions that feature the annual conference theme. Selected high quality presentations will be invited to submit manuscripts to the New Waves Journal, the CAERDA’s professional online journal, or an annual feature publication of CAERDA.

The CAERDA Conference is held immediately before the Annual Convention of the American Educational Research Association (AERA) at the same location. This affiliation provides added convenience and enriched experience to conference participants to benefit from the programs of both conferences. This one-and-a-half-day conference will take place from Thursday morning, April 12 to Friday noon, April 13, 2012 at one of the AERA headquarter hotels in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. At this annual conference, CAERDA will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. Special programs including CAERDA Past Presidents’ Panel, Presidential -Invited Sessions will be featured.

The 2012 CAERDA Conference theme is “Educational Research, Policy, and Practice for the Globalizing World.” Educational research is a general term for the study of educational problems with a systematic application of the scientific method(s). Educational research findings contribute to teaching and learning as practitioners learn how to find, understand, and evaluate these findings. At this conference, we are particularly interested in research related to the following sub-themes:

Sub-theme 1: Language and literacy education (for example, teaching and learning languages, mathematics, or science)
Sub-theme 2: Curriculum development and classroom practice (for example, information technology in education, innovative pedagogical practices, or curriculum designs)
Sub-theme 3: Educational research methods, student performance, and assessment
Sub-theme 4: Educational policies and practices
Sub-theme 5: Globalization and education related to Chinese and overseas Chinese
