The NSF Division of Undergraduate Education in collaboration with AAAS offered an Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) webinar on November 1, 2018, focusing on opportunities for funding in the EHR:USE program, specifically associated with aspects of undergraduate education related to STEM pre-service teacher preparation. An audio archive and slides are now available below.
The NSF IUSE Program supports proposals that seek to improve undergraduate education which includes pre-service STEM education. The solicitation (NSF 17-590) states: “EHR encourages projects that develop faculty expertise, prepare K-12 teachers, and provide all undergraduate students with STEM competencies and a basic understanding of STEM concepts and principles.”
The IUSE Program “supports a broad range of projects, including: research and development of innovative learning resources; studies to understand the impact of such resources; strategies to implement effective instruction in a department or multiple departments, within or across institutions; faculty development projects; design and testing of instruments for measuring student outcomes; and proposals for untested and unconventional activities that could have a high impact on STEM teaching and learning.”
Presenters: Dr. Kathleen Bergin and Dr. Sandra Richardson, NSF Program Officers
