Highlights from AERA 2019: Emerging Research & Students Representing!

This year, AERA was especially rewarding. It was the first time I was actively engaged almost every day of the conference. I was happy to serve as a chair and discussant for several timely and interesting sessions. However, my biggest highlights were my research group's emerging research, and seeing my graduate student research assistants flourish in presenting our work-in-progress. Below are highlights from the invited AERA/National Academy Session for current fellows, my presentation as part of Yasmin Kafai's structured poster session compiling notable e-textile work from the past 10 years, and the poster session on Code Switching, which students Will Ashley and Nakisha Whittington led.
