On Saturday, April 6, after our SIG Business Meeting and Reception, join us for the AERA 2019 Motivation in Education SIG Dinner Social! It will be held from 8:30‐10:30 p.m. at Walrus Pub and Beer Hall (187 Bay St.) in their Pong Bar ( It’s only a short 10-minute walk from where our business meeting is located, and the cost for the event is US$38.

For our event, we have exclusive use of The Pong Bar, which includes our own bar, ping pong table, and shuffleboard table. Delicious dinner bites (sliders, tacos, pizza, empanadas, coconut shrimp, caprese skewers, and more) and an alcoholic drink ticket are included with entry.
