AERA Meeting: German and US-American educational researchers in dialogue

DIPF booth at the conference in Philadelphia serves as a platform for cooperation and information

The German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF) offers German and US-American educational researchers  an opportunity to deepen their professional exchange at the annual meeting of the  American Educational Research Association in Philadelphia (AERA, 4th to 6th April). At its booth, the DIPF service unit International Cooperation in Education (ice) invites research groups from Germany to present their projects. US-American colleagues can thus learn about their work and explore approaches to co-operation with the German researchers. The teams from Germany span a broad scope of educational research ranging from early childhood to vocational education and training. Amongst others, they are based at universities and research institutions in Kiel, Tübingen, Mainz and Bielefeld.
On April 5th, at 4:30 pm, ice and the German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI) are hosting an event at the Hilton Garden Inn in Philadelphia. At the venue, a topic that is relevant in both countries will be presented: Professor Dr. Kristina Reiss (TU Munich) and Professor Dr. Marilyn Strutchens (Auburn University, Alabama) will talk about national education standards for mathematics. Common frames of reference will be revealed while the experts will also highlight national specificities. In the course of the following reception, participants will have the opportunity to get to know each other while sharing their views and information on the presented and other topics.
International Cooperation in Education (ice) aims to support international networking activities of German educational researchers.  At DIPF, ice services are offered on a permanent basis.
