AERA and OECD to co-host webinar on education research worldwide in a covid and post-COVID world


The American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) will co-host a webinar on “Education Research Worldwide in a Covid and Post-Covid World” at 9:30-11:00 am EDT Wednesday, September 23.

This AERA-OECD webinar will examine priorities and planning for education research at a time when education and learning face uncertainty and dislocation. In this interactive discussion, research leaders from around the world will share insights on how education research is currently contributing to the response to COVID-19 for all levels of education and forms of learning. They will also discuss what is needed to further understand and monitor related challenges, and will offer evidence-based policies to help education leaders, government officials, schools, and education systems make sound decisions.

The webinar will explore how the worldwide research community can collaboratively contribute to the design of COVID and post-COVID education and to the implementation of new research processes that can help inform stakeholders during and after the crisis.
