Informational Webinar: NSF IUSE Program and Pre-Service STEM Teacher Education

The NSF Division of Undergraduate Education in collaboration with AAAS will offer an Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) Program webinar on September 27 for institutions interested in improving undergraduate education for PRE-SERVICE STEM TEACHERS.

This 90-minute webinar will center on opportunities for funding in the EHR: IUSE program, specifically associated with aspects of undergraduate education related to pre-service STEM teacher preparation. Questions from the webinar participants will assist in driving the richness of the discussion.

The NSF IUSE Program supports proposals that are interested in improving undergraduate education, which includes PRE-SERVICE STEM EDUCATION.  The solicitation states: “A well-prepared, innovative science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce is crucial to the Nation’s health and economy. Indeed, recent policy actions and reports have drawn attention to the opportunities and challenges inherent in increasing the number of highly qualified STEM graduates, including STEM teachers.”

The IUSE Program supports “research-based and research-generating approaches to understanding STEM learning; to designing, testing, and studying curricular change; to wide dissemination and implementation of best practices; and to broadening participation of individuals and institutions in STEM fields.”

The proposal submission date is November 2, 2016.
