Tues Conference Program-2013-wo workshop info ... - CCLI/TUES

Overview of the Conference

The overall outcome of the conference is to provide NSF TUES

Principal Investigators (PIs) and team leaders with an

opportunity to: (a) learn about and share innovative ideas for

transforming undergraduate STEM education; (b) implement

innovative STEM undergraduate education ideas, as

appropriate; (c) spread the use of innovative STEM

undergraduate education ideas to their colleagues; and (d)

make new connections and create collaborations.

To facilitate networking and interaction among faculty and

educational leaders engaged in improving undergraduate STEM

education, this conference features mostly poster sessions and

small group discussions. The nearly 400 poster presentations are

organized into 3 sessions by STEM disciplines. Since the theme

of this conference is Building a Community to Transform

Undergraduate STEM Education, as part of the abstract, poster

presentations, discussions, and post‐conference activities, TUES

leaders are asked to reflect on the following:

• Intended project outcomes;

• Methods and strategies;

• Evaluation methods and results;

• Dissemination activities;

• Project impact;

• Challenges; and

• Key findings.

The conference small group discussion sessions led by TUES PIs

are focused on:

• Dissemination and project management;

• Materials development;

• Pedagogy;

• Personnel development (faculty, post‐docs, graduate

student, etc.);

• Research and Assessment;

• Technology‐based education; and

• Other topics, including community college partnerships.

The small group discussion sessions led by NSF TUES Program

Directors are focused on:

• Dissemination strategies;

• Evaluation strategies;

• Other NSF funding opportunities;

• Preparing reports: present and future; and

• Project sustainability.

The TUES Conference was organized by staff of the NSF Division

of Undergraduate Education and the AAAS Education and

Human Resources Programs.
