With this issue of AOE Engage, we are closing the books on 2020. Many are happy to see this year come to a close as it has been fraught with challenges. COVID has caused significant disruption to our day to day lives. We are proud to say that the AOE has used these disruptions to grow stronger. We pivoted with the challenges and brought even more workshops and educational opportunities to our academy members. Our website has also become more robust, and you can revisit these lectures and workshops as your time permits. We are grateful for the enthusiastic participation of our Academy members and look forward to the new opportunities in 2021. Happy Holidays!

Presenting: Project ACCESS

A Carolina Community Educational Scholarship Series
The AOE Scholarship Committee is excited to announce the addition of ongoing scholarship-related programming! One of the goals of the Academy is to encourage members to turn the educational work they are already doing into scholarship. Through these sessions, we hope to not only motivate you in this process but also to provide you with some tools and resources to make it happen. There are 2 Scholarship Sessions coming up. Q3 and Q4 will be announced later next year
Back by popular demand, Dr Andrew Phillips will present “Survey Design” on February 23 from 12-1:30 PM EST.

When he did this session last year, it received great feedback for providing practical tips for designing surveys:

"I found the talk incredibly helpful. I really liked the advice on how to structure your questions and validate the survey"

"[Dr. Phillips provided] helpful pointers about wording and formatting of surveys with specific, clear examples."

On April 19 from 12-1 PM EST, Dr Fei Chen will present “Want to Get Published? How to turn the educational work you are already doing into scholarly projects.”

Dr. Chen is well-published in educational research and will inspire you to move your project onto that next step.
Please let us know of additional scholarship topics you would like to learn about!
