Step 2: Conference Registration Information
Two training sessions are being offered this year, beginning at roughly noon on Wednesday, the first day of the conference. A pre-conference workshop, Tony Talbert will present Close Encounters of the Third Paradigm: Mixed Methods Researchers – We’re Not Alone. In addition, The P.O.W.E.R.ful Hour Full: How to Transform Your Writing in One Hour, Every Day, and Not Get Bored, will be presented by Carly Jennings and Sharon Matthewes.
The training sessions and the presenters are described in considerably more detail in the Fall 2018 Newsletter, which will be posted to the SERA website (http://sera-edresearch.org/newsletter).
During the annual luncheon at the annual meeting, drawings are held for $100 towards one conference hotel room night for at least 10 randomly selected students. ONLY students who are BOTH (a) in paid attendance at the luncheon and (b) registered in the conference hotel by the hotel are eligible for these awards.
SERA (a) posts the program on-line on the SERA website, (b) provides a free Smartphone app version of the program, and (c) displays posters near the conference registration desk that list sessions for different conference time blocks. However, some registrants prefer the option of a printed program, which can be requested below by paying a $1 fee. The printed program will be distributed at the conference registration desk at the annual meeting **only** to persons who purchase a ticket for a printed program copy. The onsite printed program cost is $5.
I understand and accept the requirement that, to be considered, all special needs accommodation requests must be received by the SERA Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org by noon on December 5th.
