NSF-funded workshops offered to STEM faculty

The UNL Discipline-Based Education Research Group is offering an online series of six, two-hour webinar-style workshops to assist faculty in science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines develop more competitive National Science Foundation educational proposals and projects.

The workshops are designed to strengthen grant proposals for the NSF Transforming Undergraduate Education in STEM program as well as other NSF programs with substantial educational components. The interactive workshops will be presented by former NSF program directors. Members of UNL's DBER Group will facilitate each workshop.

The workshops start April 3 and are offered in 103 Manter Hall. Session topics are: Introduction to the Transforming Undergraduate STEM Education Program; Goals and Expected Outcomes; Proposal Strategy; Project Evaluation; Broader Impacts; Impact and Transportability. Additional workshop descriptions are available at http://www.unl.edu/dber/workshops.

Registration, due by March 26, is available at https://www.research.net/s/STEM_Ed_Grants. Space in each workshop is limited to 30 participants. Individuals who register will receive confirmation by March 31.
