Our 2019 international session continued our successful series of international seminars at the AERA Annual Meetings since 2013. We provided a space for North-American, German and international researchers to discuss their research and engage in transatlantic cooperation. In 2019 we were joined by a group of researchers from Sweden, Canada, Austria, Cyprus, Switzerland, Great Britain, Israel and Australia. Experts discussed international approaches towards leveraging education research in a post-truth era with regard to various countries and educational settings. Our plenary session started with a reflection on education research in a post-truth era (key speakers: Dorothe Kienhues, University of Münster, and Bill Sandoval, UCLA) which will be followed by six roundtables on following aspects:

  1. Research on school leadership in challenging environments: Chairs: Stefan Brauckmann (University of Klagenfurt), Petros Pashiardis (Open University of Cyprus), Tobias Feldhoff (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz)
  2. Migration, refugees, and public education: Policy Perspectives on Immigrant and Refugee Youth Education
    Chair: Lisa Damaschke-Deitrick (Lehigh University)
  3. Migration, refugees, and public education: The Role of Language in Immigrant and Refugee Educational Experiences
    Chair: Alexander Wiseman (Texas Tech University)
  4. School development processes (in the context of evidence-based school reforms and evaluation) from an international perspective
    Chair: Barbara Muslic (Freie Universität Berlin)
  5. The role of education in a time of misinformation: Providing foundations for open and tolerant societies
    Chairs: Dorothe Kienhues (University of Münster), William Sandoval (UCLA)
