About the series
The workshop will encompass three related but separate themes relevant to writing effective educational proposals. The three themes are treated in separate sub-sessions of the workshop and participants may attend any or all of the sub-sessions. Each sub-session will engage participants using a structured guided-interactive methodology that leads them through a series of topics. For each topic, the workshop will introduce the issues related to the topic, engages participants in group exercises designed to explore and share their understanding of these issues, and then provides some expert opinion on these issues. Part A of the workshop, from 9:00-12:00, will examine how to write more effective proposals. Upon completing this portion, participants will be able to identify and use better strategies to improve their engineering education proposals. Part B, from 1:00-3:00, will provide guidance for the development of a project evaluation plan. At the end of this sub-session, participants will have a basis for working with an evaluator to collaboratively develop and implement an evaluation plan. Part C, from 3:30-5:30, will concentrate on approaches for addressing the broader impacts review criterion. Specific goals of Part B are: (1) to develop a better understanding of NSF’s broader impacts criterion and (2) to learn how to enhance broader impacts in a proposal.
