Two Lynch School of Education Faculty and Researchers Selected as 2013 AERA Fellows
The American Educational Research Association (AERA) has selected two Lynch School of Education faculty members to be AERA Fellows. Monan University Professor Philip G. Altbach and Professor Larry Ludlow are among 23 scholars nationwide who were selected this year in recognition of their exceptional scientific or scholarly contributions to education research or significant contributions to the field through the development of research opportunities and settings.
New fellows are nominated by peers, selected and recommended by the Fellows Program Committee, and approved by the elected Council governing AERA. The AERA Fellows are known both nationally and internationally for their outstanding contributions to education research. Through this Fellows Program, AERA aims to convey its commitment to excellence in research and to underscore to new scholars the importance of sustained research contributions in the field.
Both professors were inducted at AERA’s annual meeting in San Francisco, CA, April 27-May 1, 2013. They join 534 current AERA Fellows, including four Lynch School faculty and researchers: Boisi Professor Henry Braun, Professor Diana Pullin, Cawthorne Professor Marilyn Cochran-Smith, and Professor David Blustein.
AERA is the national interdisciplinary research association for approximately 25,000 scholars who undertake research in education. Founded in 1916 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., AERA aims to advance knowledge about education, to encourage scholarly inquiry related to education, and to promote the use of research to improve education and serve the public good.
