Housed at the University of Chicago, and a joint effort with Michigan State University, the summer institute in advanced research methods for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics education research (SIARM for STEM) is funded via a 3-year grant from the National Science Foundation (2020-2023).
The team will select a diverse cohort of 22 NSF Fellows of STEM Education Research among early- and mid-career scholars, especially those under-represented in STEM, with the goals of:
(a) helping Fellows master rigorous and novel applications of advanced methods to STEM education research,
(b) providing continuous methodological support in research planning, data analysis, and publication,
(c) creating a community that prepares Fellows to take leadership in advancing STEM education research and effectively serving as role models for the next generation of a diverse population of students.
