November 18, 2021 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
The NSF Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) in collaboration with AAAS will offer an Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Education and Human Resources (IUSE: EHR) webinar focusing on opportunities for funding in the IUSE: EHR program, specifically associated with aspects of undergraduate education related to STEM pre-service teacher preparation.
The IUSE: EHR program “seeks to promote novel, creative, and transformative approaches to generating and using new knowledge about STEM teaching and learning to improve STEM education for all undergraduates.” The program supports proposals interested in improving undergraduate education, developing faculty expertise, preparing K-12 teachers, and providing all undergraduate students, including pre-service teachers, with STEM competencies and a basic understanding of STEM concepts and principles. All projects must contribute to the body of knowledge about what works in undergraduate STEM education and the conditions that lead to improved STEM teaching and learning.
For information about the program or proposal solicitation, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.

Peruse the presentation slides.
Kathleen Bergin, Ph.D. – Program Director, National Science Foundation -
Dr. Bergin is a Program Lead for the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. In addition to passions for equity and diversity in STEM education, Bergin has focused on the importance of changing how teachers/instructors and learners engage in the process of questioning. She brings her expertise as a biologist by training and educator by passion to the Noyce team and is a strong advocate for STEM majors becoming teachers.
John Haddock, Ph.D. – Program Director, National Science Foundation -
Dr. John Haddock is the Program Co-Lead for the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. His research interests focus on delay differential equations and dynamical systems as well as mathematics and STEM education. The education research interests include preparation of graduate teaching assistants for the teaching-research STEM workforce and networking and development of STEM identity for undergraduate students.
