Webinar

EDU Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) Workshop

About the seriesThe Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program is a Foundation-wide activity that offers the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.

Webinar

Orientation for ECR:Core and ECR:BCSER PIs on Managing NSF Grants

In this one-hour webinar, program officers with the U.S. National Science Foundation share insights on managing EDU Core Research (ECR) grants, including BCSER Individual Investigator Development (IID), ECR-CAREER, and ECR:Core awards. Although the webinar is designed for first-time PIs, all active ECR PIs and co-PIs will find the information of value.

Event

Office Hours: STEM Ed OPRF

About the SeriesThe Directorate for STEM Education at the National Science Foundation is hosting a series of virtual office hours for the STEM Education Postdoctoral Research Fellowships program (solicitation NSF 23-545) to support PIs in preparing proposals for the upcoming deadline.

Event

Professional Development for Emerging Education Researchers (PEER) Institutes Application Deadline

Professional Development for Emerging Education Researchers (PEER) Institutes support emerging education researchers in developing their research interests into concrete questions, developing short- and long-term research plans, building community with other education researchers, and making progress on advancing projects to publication. We seek scholars who are familiar with independent research and want to expand their methodological repertoire.

Event

Application Due Date: Modern Meta-Analysis Research Institute

Modern meta-analytic methods are needed to understand the conditions necessary to maximize STEM intervention impacts on learning outcomes. Meta-analysis is a suite of techniques that is uniquely positioned to answer important questions about contextual factors related to intervention effects. Unfortunately, traditional applications of meta-analysis in STEM, and education research broadly, focus on identifying average effects across multiple studies.

Event

ECR:BCSER Proposal Deadline

From NSF: ECR’s Building Capacity in STEM Education Research (ECR: BCSER) supports projects that build investigators’ capacity to carry out high-quality STEM education research that will enhance the nation’s STEM education enterprise. In addition, ECR: BCSER seeks to broaden the pool of researchers who can advance knowledge regarding STEM learning and learning environments, broadening participation in STEM fields, and STEM workforce development.
