Practice -Based Research
Each year at AERA both our members and our SIG leaders are drawn to other similar and overlapping SIGs. We want to start
exploring the possible links that might exist between our work in these different areas. So we will start by listing the
SIGs and their officers. Then in 2012 we will explore what sorts of sessions we might share in common. For example
we could have all of our poster or roundtables in the same room. Or we could co-sponsor a section that might involve
local practitioners to the conference site who are engaged in action research or practice-based research.
So here are the the SIGs that might fit under the tent of practice-based research and links to their sites. Action Research
is of course larger than teacher research as one can do action research in any organization.
