Faculty members and students at UNLV College of Education are proud to present ongoing scholarly activity at the 2017 AERA National Meeting. Click here for a list of presentations and participation by UNLV College of Education representatives.

CARE Conference

CARE is a juried, national research conference, meaning that presentation proposals undergo peer-review prior to potential acceptance for presentation. We expect a robust conference with ample opportunities to exchange theoretical ideas, share research results, help advance practice, make collaborative connections, and learn from one another's scholarship.


Qualitative research is the common thread to all EQRC presentations. Ethnography, phenomenological, grounded theory, case studies, autoethnography, and narrative inquiry serve as examples of common qualitative research presented at EQRC. The purpose of the juried EQRC review process is to ensure the presentation's applicability to the conference and that sufficient rigor is evident as is expected in a national research conference-not to rank the proposals or allow only a limited quota of submissions for presentation. We view a conference presentation as the first step toward potential journal publication-at which stage a second level of more stringent screening is applied. Most potential topics deserve a plenary hearing before peers as part of the overall evaluation process.


The Southwest Consortium for Innovative Psychology in Education (SCIPIE) is a professional organization devoted to the study of psychology in education. At the core of SCIPIE are devoted consortium members who maintain leadership roles in educational research around the country. SCIPIE hosts a biennial conference where researchers develop innovative approaches to research.

SCT and SLL/AL meetings are inspiring and provide participants with a unique environment for collective thinking. The evolution of the SCT and SLL/AL group, dealing now with quite sophisticated topics, is requiring that we establish guidelines for engaging participation and maximizing quality feedback from audience to presenters.
