Upcoming DR K-12 Solicitation Webinars

Description

CADRE invites you to learn more about the National Science Foundation's Discovery Research K-12 program and solicitation, by joining them at one of two webinars listed below. The DR K-12 program supports projects that develop and study resources, models and technologies for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education. The sessions will be led by NSF program officers and hosted by CADRE, the resource network for DR K-12 grantees. To learn more about CADRE, please visit their website at CADREK12.org.

Please share this invitation with interested colleagues.

Both sessions will be offered on Tuesday, September 16. Each will feature a 45 minute presentation by NSF program officers followed by Q&A as time allows. When registering, choose one of the session times below.
  • 1:00-2:00pm EDT
  • 3:00-4:00pm EDT
REGISTER HERE: http://cadrek12.org/nsf-dr-k-12-program-webinar-registration

Access details will be provided in the confirmation email. Note that space is limited and registration is first come, first served. The slides and a recording of the presentation will be made available for those who are unable to attend.

The Discovery Research K-12 program (DR K-12) seeks to significantly enhance the learning and teaching of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) by preK-12 students and teachers, through research and development of innovative resources, models and tools (RMTs). The intent of the DR K-12 program is to: (1) catalyze new approaches to STEM learning; (2) develop students' 21st century STEM skills; and (3) provide multiple pathways and resources in a variety of learning environments to study the learning process itself. DR K-12 is committed to attracting and retaining a diverse population of students in STEM fields of study. DR K-12 invites proposals that address immediate challenges that are facing preK-12 STEM education as well as those that anticipate radically different structures and functions of pre-K 12 teaching and learning. The projects funded by DR K-12 reflect the needs of that increasingly diverse population--as well as national, state, or discipline priorities--and contribute to the research base in STEM education by studying how students and teachers learn with innovative RMTs. DR K-12 especially encourages proposals that challenge existing assumptions about learning and teaching within or across STEM fields, envision the future needs of learners and teachers, and consider new and innovative ways to support student and teacher learning. The DR K-12 program has four research and development strands: (1) Assessment; (2) Learning; (3) Teaching; and (4) Implementation Research. Read more

Full Proposal Deadline: October 16, 2014 at 5 p.m. (local time)
