If you are a member and the site has been shared with you, you will need to go to the bottom of the page and on the left side of the menu you will see a login option.
If you are new to google sites, there are two videos to help you learn how to work in google sites:
1) overview of google sites and
2) learn how to use this site-- they are both short and watching these videos will help you become an expert.
Once the site is shared with you, you can start the process by selecting members and adding your name and information to the contact list. If you want to see some of the places were action research is being done, take a look at the Action Research World Map. Derrel Fincher, our map keeper has created a google map with many of our sites. If you don't see your favorite center for action research listed, contact Derrel. It would be great to have the globe covered with markers. Also you are welcome to use this site as a place to keep information about your action research activities. You are welcome to create your entry in the Action Research World.
We have also create a space for planning for AERA meetings.
We have information on the the sessions for AEARA 2014 please add your papers or powerpoints.

AERA 2015 AR-SIG Call for Proposals
You have one month to submit your proposals!!!!!
July 22, 2014, 11:59PM Pacific Time
This year AERA call encourages submissions that consider how education praxis, research, theory and policy can change the world – toward justice. Given this theme, the Action Research Sis welcomes submissions that highlight how action research encourages the examine of injustices and conceptualizes and fights for justice. Since most, if not all, action research is about empowering others to assert ownership of the process of change, this work is an important part of the conference. Action research is one of the best ways of blending research and praxis for the social good.
We invite scholars from all divisions and SIGs to submit proposals. The AERA online submission system is now open, and details about the formal call for proposals and the July 22, 2014 deadline can be found at .
As a reminder, Proposals for papers, posters, roundtables, and symposia/sessions are invited, and innovative session designs are encouraged. In order to accommodate flexibility in program decisions, please select all of the formats in which you would be willing to present your work; every year there are far more spots available for poster presentations and roundtable papers than individual papers and symposia. Please also note that ‘working group roundtables’ and ‘structured poster sessions’ count as symposia (even though they are named to suggest otherwise), and thus compete against numerous other proposed sessions for a small number of slots.
The number of sessions allocated to each SIG is determined by the number of proposals and the size of our active membership. Please consider our SIG as a place to share your work, and renew your SIG membership when you submit your proposals. Encourage students and colleagues to join our SIG too.
All information about the annual meeting can be found at . You can also go there to for sessions at the 2015 meeting. These are especially important roles for senior scholars, in order to provide leadership and mentoring.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
