The NSF Division of Undergraduate Education in collaboration with AAAS will offer an Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE) Program webinar for institutions interested in improving undergraduate education for PRE-SERVICE STEM TEACHERS on Tuesday, September 27, 2016 from 05:00 PM to 6:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time
Speakers will include NSF Program Officers in the IUSE Program, Kathleen Bergin & Sandra Richardson.

This 90-minute webinar will center on opportunities for funding in the EHR: IUSE program, specifically associated with aspects of undergraduate education related to pre-service STEM teacher preparation. Questions from the webinar participants will assist in driving the richness of the discussion.
The NSF IUSE Program supports proposals that are interested in improving undergraduate education, which includes PRE-SERVICE STEM EDUCATION. The solicitation states: “A well-prepared, innovative science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce is crucial to the nation’s health and economy. Indeed, recent policy actions and reports have drawn attention to the opportunities and challenges inherent in increasing the number of highly qualified STEM graduates, including STEM teachers.”
The IUSE Program supports “research-based and research-generating approaches to understanding STEM learning; to designing, testing, and studying curricular change; to wide dissemination and implementation of best practices; and to broadening participation of individuals and institutions in STEM fields.”
