Support for NSF Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) Proposal Preparation

The National Science Foundation's Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE: EHR) Program "invites proposals that address immediate challenges and opportunities that are facing undergraduate STEM education, as well as those that anticipate new structures (e.g. organizational changes, new methods for certification or credentialing, course re-conception, cyberlearning, etc.) and new functions of the undergraduate learning and teaching enterprise."

NSF released a new funding solicitation for the IUSE program (14-588) on July 23, 2014. As IUSE workshops and webinars are scheduled by NSF, STEM Initiatives, and other organizations, they will be added to this webpage and in the Events listing on the STEM Initiatives website. To receive emails from STEM Initiatives about IUSE, sign up at this Google Doc.

Outreach/Education/Diversity "Virtual Brown Bag" webinars

The Virtual Brown Bag webinars are a series of lunchtime events organized by STEM Initiatives to highlight opportunities for the university community to collaborate with partners involved with STEM Initiatives focus areas:

  • Outreach and engagement with schools and the public
  • Reform of undergraduate teaching and learning
  • Recruitment and retention of students from underrepresented groups

These webinars are presented using Carmen Connect (Ohio State's Adobe Connect client). The sessions are videorecorded and posted for viewing on the Virtual Brown Bag webinar webpage. These sessions may be helpful for IUSE projects:
