An Introduction From President Bonnie J.F. Meyer:

“We are looking forward to Div. 15’s conference program at the 2017 APA Annual Convention in the nation’s capital, August 3-6.  Program Co-Chairs, Pui-Wa Lei and Kay Wijekumar, organized a wonderful array of research and social events.  On August 3 (Thursday from 4 – 5:50 PM) at Div. 15’s opening reception, we will honor Div. 15 Committee chairs and members, past-presidents, early career educational psychologists, doctoral students participating in the Claire Ellen Weinstein Annual Graduate Seminar, our first international student research awardee, and nominees for two graduate student poster awards.  Like last year, you will have an opportunity view posters and chat with graduate students nominated this year.  The Saturday schedule (Aug. 5) includes presentations from our 2016 research award winners (Thorndike, Snow, and Pintrich awardees) from 10 – 11:50 AM and Past-President Nancy Perry (4 PM).  Dr. Perry’s address is followed by our Business Meeting (5 PM) and a closing reception (6 – 8:50 PM).  In addition, the Div. 15 program includes seven themed paper sessions, four Div. 15 symposia, six poster sessions, and a discussion session about developing teams and grant writing.  Also, we are co-sponsoring three of APA’s Collaborative Sessions.  All APA attendees are welcome at Div. 15 events.  We hope you will join us as we experience the 2017 Div. 15 program theme, ‘Welcoming and Advancing Research in Educational Psychology: Impacting Learners, Teachers, and Schools.’”
