Congratulations to Bob Abbott, Jim Banks and John Bransford

American Educational Research Association (AERA)

The American Educational Research Association (AERA) recently named College of Education faculty Bob Abbott, Jim Banks, and John Bransford AERA Inaugural Fellows. The honor is conferred on distinguished scholars, recognizing educational researchers for substantial research accomplishments.

The award conveys the Association’s commitment to excellence in research, and to enable the next generation of emerging scholars to appreciate the value of sustained achievement in research and the breadth of scholarship worthy of recognition. The membership status of Fellow is intended to recognize AERA members who have made such sustained, outstanding research contributions. It may also be awarded for exceptional contributions to the field through the development of research opportunities and settings.

The initial group of fellows was invited to inaugurate the AERA program based on their fellow status in related research associations.

Relevant information and materials for nomination are posted and available on the AERA Web site. You can also download the entire list of Fellows (.pdf file).
