Niagara University Professors To Present Three Papers At International Conference
Entering its second century in existence, the American Educational Research Association is one of the world’s foremost academic research societies. Its annual meeting draws more than 15,000 international scholars to promote the use of research to improve education and serve the public good.
Having one paper accepted for presentation at the annual meeting, therefore, is considered a significant achievement. Having three approved – out of this year’s nearly 13,000 submissions – is “humbling and beyond my expectations,” says Dr. Vince Rinaldo, who will make a trio of presentations next April 27-May 1 in San Antonio, the site of AERA’s 2017 annual meeting.
Dr. Rinaldo, professor and an associate dean in Niagara University’s College of Education in Ontario, coauthored two of the papers with Dr. Thomas Sheeran, a senior faculty member in NU’s College of Education. The third was written with Dr. Maritza Branker, chair of Niagara’s mathematics department.
