This November and December, the NSF Division of Undergraduate Education will hold professional development events free of charge for faculty who are interested in applying for the Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Education and Human Resources Program (IUSE:EHR). If you are thinking about applying to the IUSE Program or already have an IUSE grant, these events are for you!

Proposal Development Interactive Web-based Workshops (IWBWs)
Faculty interested in gaining a competitive edge in developing effective educational proposals and writing competitive writing proposals should plan to participate in the Interactive Web-based Workshops (IWBWs) facilitated by former NSF Program Directors from the DUE.
These workshops are intended for all STEM faculty members who are planning NSF educational proposals or already have a funded project. They are designed to engage local groups of participants in discussions of issues related to the workshop topic that will enable local sites to interact with the entire virtual group, and to be provided with information and insights on each of these discussion items by workshop presenters. Each workshop includes two Q&A segments.
Because of this distributed organization, only groups of STEM faculty at a site may participate and each group must have a local facilitator who will work with the presenters to organize the local activities and interact with the presenter in coordinating the workshop presentation. Those interested in serving as a facilitator for their institution must submit an application for each IWBW they wish to hold at their site. More information on facilitating an IWBW and on the application process is provided on the FACILITATORS page.
