The IUSE: EHR program “seeks to promote novel, creative, and transformative approaches to generating and using new knowledge about STEM teaching and learning to improve STEM education for undergraduate students.” The program supports proposals interested in improving undergraduate education, developing faculty expertise, preparing K-12 teachers, and providing all undergraduate students with STEM competencies and a basic understanding of STEM concepts and principles. All projects must contribute to the body of knowledge about what works in undergraduate STEM education and the conditions that lead to improved STEM teaching and learning.

This webinar is targeted toward individuals interested in submitting small-scale project proposals or proposals for building capacity for larger institutional and community transformation projects. Participants will learn about important project elements that are described in the IUSE:EHR program solicitation. NSF Program Officers will provide an overview of the program and highlight the solicitation requirements, including a discussion of knowledge generation and project evaluation. Following this presentation, Program Officers will answer questions about the IUSE:EHR program from webinar participants.
