Education Research Day is an annual conference hosted by the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Education that offers an opportunity for students to share work with their peers, faculty, and community members and engage in fruitful discussion about a range of issues in education research.

The 18th annual conference will take place on Thursday evening, March 15, and all day Friday, March 16, 2018, and will include an evening poster session, a morning opening plenary, afternoon keynote, faculty-moderated papers and workshops, and interactive sessions. Education Research Day is a space for students to gain meaningful conference experience, learn from other young scholars, and network. GSE students are encouraged to submit work to present such as finished and in-progress research or non-empirical content.

This year’s conference has been expanded to a national level, welcoming scholars from across the United States. The conference will feature 55 paper presentations, two workshops, a Research Group symposium, and 35 poster presentations.

Keynote speakers include the GSE’s Professor David Pearson, and Tia Madkins PhD ’16, Assistant Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Texas, Austin.
