At the AERA Meeting in Washington, leading educational researchers from Germany and the United States will discuss the current state of research.
Experts from major institutions in the field of educational research – mostly from Germany and the US – will convene in Washington on April 9 to discuss governance approaches in school education from an international perspective.
The seminar is organized by the service unit International Cooperation in Education (ice), on the occasion of the annual meeting of the American Educational Research Association (AERA). The event will predominantly focus on the potential offered by digital methods and data assessment in empirical educational research for the purpose of school improvement.
Dr. Joann Halpern, Director of the German Center for Research and Innovation (GCRI) in New York, will open the event. The GCRI is a co-operating partner to the seminar. The introductory note will be followed by a panel discussion on “Data-Driven School Improvement.
The Role of Data for Teaching and Learning“ presenting Prof. Dr. Henry Levin (Columbia University), Prof. Dr. Eckhard Klieme (DIPF), Dr. Jack Buckley (Senior Vice President, College Board) and Prof. Dr. Benó Csapó (University of Szeged). The panel will be hosted by Prof. Dr. Petra Stanat from the Institute for Educational Quality Improvement in Berlin.
The subsequent poster session will display US-American and German research infrastructures, educational research institutions and large-scale comparative educational assessments. Research from the US is represented by the National Center for Education Statistics, the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards and Student Testing and the College Board, while research in Germany is represented by the Leibniz Institute for Educational Trajectories, the Centre for International Student Assessment, and the Leibniz Educational Research Network.
Participants are then invited to three workshops enabling them to present and discuss their own studies and identify opportunities for cooperation. These workshops will focus on:
1. Leadership and (System) Monitoring
2. Computer-Assisted Progress Monitoring Systems for Whole Classrooms in Primary and Secondary Education
3. Big Data, Little Data – Potentials and Boundaries of Digitization in Educational Research
Interested AERA visitors are warmly invited to take part in the event entitled “International Perspectives on School Governance”. You can find more information about the seminar on the internet, see http://ice.dipf.de/de/veranstaltungen/aera-tagungen/aera-2016
Date: April 9, 2016, 11: 00 hrs to 15:30 hrs
Venue: Marriott Marquis, Level Four, Capitol, 901 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Washington D.C.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
