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.

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
