SREE’s 2020 in-person annual meeting has been canceled due increasing health concerns regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19). Instead, SREE is shifting to a virtual meeting. For more information, see our list of virtual activities below and visit SREE’s Conference page.

WestEd is also planning to offer virtual meetings, webinars, and resources. Please check back with us for more details.

Researchers from WestEd will be present on a range of topics at the Spring 2020 Society for Research on Educational Effectiveness (SREE), held on March 11–14, 2020, at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Crystal City, Virginia.

This year’s theme is “Practical Significance and Meaningful Effects: Learning and Communicating What Matters.” SREE endeavors to “advance research relevant to practice, from early childhood through the transition to higher and continuing education,” and works to organize conferences and professional learning experiences for diverse audiences.
