NSF Seeks Proposals for Transforming STEM Learning

Full Proposal Due March 11, 2011

TSL combines interests and resources of separate programs in the Division of Research on Learning in Formal and Informal Settings (DRL) to explore the opportunities and challenges implied by innovative visions of the future for STEM learning. The TSL program invites interdisciplinary teams to submit proposals for the following categories:

Challenge 1: Studying Existing Examples of Innovative Models for STEM Education: We invite proposals for descriptive and analytic research projects that will study existing innovations to determine how and what students are learning, and features of successful programs. Proposals for work on those objectives should involve interdisciplinary teams, as appropriate, of STEM-related specialists and experts.

Challenge 2: Designing, Developing, and Studying New Structural Models for STEM Learning Environments: We invite proposals for planning and pilot development projects from interdisciplinary teams of STEM-related specialists and experts. The aim of these projects would be the development and study of new models for STEM learning environments that produce learners with understanding and skills to engage in scientific, engineering, technical, and mathematical thinking and practices. They should yield learning outcomes markedly superior to the yield of current practices in STEM education.

Questions may be directed to DRLTSL@nsf.gov
