Upcoming NSF IUSE Webinar focusing on Pre-Service STEM Education


Dear Colleague:

The NSF Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) is collaborating with the Virtual Faculty Collaborative (VFC), a partnership between AAAS, Louisiana State University, and Higher Education Services, to offer an IUSE webinar focusing on those interested in improving undergraduate education for pre-service STEM Teachers.

The IUSE Webinar focusing on PRE-SERVICE STEM EDUCATION will be held on: Friday, December 12, 2014, 3:00pm - 5:00pm (Eastern Time).

Speakers will include NSF Program Directors, Kathleen Bergin & Katherine Denniston.

Participants will have the opportunity to submit written questions that will be answered by NSF/DUE Program Directors. The presentation slides will be similar to the ones presented during the September 2014 Webinar but we expect the discussion to focus on pre-service STEM Education. A recorded version of the webinar will be posted later.

Almost immediately you will receive an email from with your unique set of logon instructions. If you experience any problems, contact Roger Seals at or 225-335-5327 (Cell).

Enrollment will be limited to 300 participants per session.

The National Science Foundation's (NSF) Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE), Solicitation 14-588, supports proposals that are interested in improving undergraduate education, which includes PRE-SERVICE STEM EDUCATION. This solicitation states upfront the following: "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."

Information about IUSE is located online.
