FSU Talks at AERA 2019

Josh Duke

The annual American Educational Research Association offers a great way for faculty members and students to share ideas and their latest research. This year's conference, which takes place April 5 - April 9 in Toronto, asks participants to consider what it means to live in a "post-truth" era. Always at the forefront of research and conversations, Florida State  College of Education faculty members and students plan on presenting at this conference their original research and lead important conversations in education.
