Dear Colleague:

Are you interested in giving your faculty a competitive edge in writing proposals for educational research and development projects such as those supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF) Transforming Undergraduate Education in STEM (TUES) Program {formerly the Course, Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) Program} or for research projects with significant educational components (e.g., the BRIGE and CAREER programs)? Then you will want to make arrangements for them to participate as a group in one or more of the 21 upcoming NSF sponsored Interactive Web-based Workshops (IWBWs) all of which will be presented by former NSF Program Directors in the Division of Undergraduate Education.

The Virtual Faculty Collaborative (AAAS, Louisiana State University, and Higher Education Services) is offering a series of Interactive Web-Based Workshops (IWBWs) on topics that are important in preparing proposals and in implementing funded undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education projects. This project is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), Transforming Undergraduate Education in STEM (TUES) Program– which is a program of the Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE).

Workshop Topics

Individual workshops, which will last for two hours, will focus on:

***Developing an understanding of the NSF TUES Program

***Incorporating effective strategies into an educational proposal

***Defining project goals, expected outcomes, and evaluation questions

***Working with an evaluator to develop a project evaluation plan

***Addressing NSF’s broader impacts expectations in a project

***Designing a project for impact and transportability 

Workshop Format

These workshops are intended for all STEM faculty members that are planning NSF educational proposals or already have a funded project.  They are designed to engage local groups of participants in discussions of issues related to the workshop topic that will enable local sites to interact with the entire virtual group, and to be provided with information and insights on each of these discussion items by workshop presenters.

Because of this distributed organization, only groups of STEM faculty at a site may participate and each group must have a local facilitator who will work with the presenters to organize the local activities and interact with the Presenter in coordinating the workshop presentation. Those interested in serving as a facilitator must submit an application for each IWBW they wish to hold at their site. More information on facilitating an IWBW and on the application process is provided at FACILITATORS link.

Workshop Schedule

Each IWBW will be offered multiple times between March 12 and May 1, 2013. The workshop sessions are scheduled on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays at 1:00-3:00 or 3:00-5:00 Eastern Time. Additional information about the IWBW content, schedule, and presenters is available at the WORKSHOP link.


To register for one or more NSF TUES IWBWs, please access the site.  If you have questions about the IWBWs, please email Yolanda George at ygeorge@aaas.org.
