Sun, April 10, 10:35am to 12:05pm, Marriott Marquis, Floor: Level Three, Chinatown

Session Type: Invited Speaker Session


To enact change in educational spaces there is a need to get research into the hands of policymakers and education stakeholders, including youth, families, community organizations, teachers, etc. Emphasizing a social context approach, this Fireside Chat brings the experience and wisdom of scholars who conduct translational research that evokes change in educational policies, structures, and practices. Graduate students are encouraged to engage in a conversation around the ways in which researchers work with and within communities to create public scholarship for the purpose of educating diverse democracies.
