Here is the program of AERA events sponsored by the Society of Professors of Education. I have also included a recently updated membership form. — Edprof
Here are two messages from the Society. The first concerns corrected information about room locations. The second provides information about the meeting and includes a PDF with the schedule of JDS events. — Edprof
Just a heads up. What we have been calling Room 5 at the Gonzalez Center, based on information from AERA, is really Riverwalk 005. You will find this room just off of the West Lobby along the River.
Please tell everyone you know.
Rob, as soon s you get this, please send an urgent message by email to all of our members.

Dear JDS members,
Just a reminder that our Awards Committee is seeking nominations for JDS Achievement Awards. The date by which nominations should be received is February 15. A list of past JDS Award recipients is available on our website.
The Awards Committee has put together the following criteria and invites nominations for either of the awards:
John Dewey Society Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement
The Award for Outstanding Lifetime Achievement will be awarded to the individual who, in the judgment of the committee, exemplifies, over a lifetime of work, the Deweyan tradition of connecting theory and practice. Each year, the award will recognize: a scholar-practitioner who, in the Deweyan tradition, connects the worlds of theory and practice in promoting the development of democratic citizens; or an exceptional explicator and interpreter of Dewey?s philosophy and educational theory.
John Dewey Society Award for Outstanding Achievement
The Awards for Outstanding Achievement will be awarded to those individuals who, in the judgment of the committee, have most strongly exemplified the Deweyan tradition of connecting theory and practice. Each year, the awards will recognize significant achievements in scholarship and/or in social, cultural, or educational practice accomplished within the two previous calendar years (January ? December).
Any member may nominate a candidate for either of the JDS awards, and members are free to self-nominate. A nomination must be sent to John Covaleskie, chair of the nominating committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org, along with a letter explaining how the candidate qualifies for such an award, taking into consideration the specified criteria. If members of the awards committee are nominated for any award, they must recuse themselves from voting for that award.
Best wishes to you all,
SEW is officially a special interest group (SIG) of AESA!!!! This means people at all levels of career whose research and activist commitments focus on women, gender studies, and education issues have a focused community of support through participating in SEW sessions at AESA. We also may be partnering in some exciting initiatives with the Eco-Democratic reform SIG at AESA. Stay posted and plan now to be there for SEW@AESA 2016. AESA will hold its annual meeting November 2 – 6, 2016 in Seattle, WA.
Educating Women, the journal of the Society for Educating Women, is accepting papers for the fall 2015 volume. If you had a working paper published in the SEW@AESA 2014 proceedings, you can revise and submit for this peer reviewed, online, open-access journal. If you did not attend SEW last year, you can still submit to the journal: educatingwomen.net
