Brock Professor Louis Volante, of the Faculty of Education, is interviewed at length about educational change issues in an article published this month by the American Educational Research Association (AERA).
Volante was invited to be part of AERA’s Lead the Change series, which interviews international experts in educational change, and examines promising research and practices.
A professor at Brock’s Hamilton campus, Volante is also an affiliated researcher with United Nations University at Maastricht Graduate School of Governance in the Netherlands. His research focuses on the global governance of education, international achievement studies, migrant integration and student achievement, education policy analysis, and educational reform and innovation.
He is also president-elect for the Canadian Educational Researchers Association.
“It is a tremendous honour to be included in this series,” said Volante, “as the other scholars in previous issues have a strong international profile.”
The AERA is a global organization with members in more than 90 countries, and each year hosts the world’s largest gathering of education researchers. Education research is the scientific field of study that examines education and learning processes and the human attributes, interactions, organizations, and institutions that shape educational outcomes.
