Introduction to the NSF Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (TUES) Program
This workshop provides an overview of the TUES Program (Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Program directors will present background and vision of the program. The workshop is structured for active participation where participants will reflect, think, and share individually and in small groups on answers to questions such as: What kinds of proposals are appropriate for the TUES Program? What questions could a proposal address? Program directors will share insight on TUES project components, the various types of projects, associated characteristics of each type and due dates. The differences between the former CCLI program and the TUES program will be discussed. Participants will consider standard review criteria for intellectual merit and broader impacts as well as added criteria that are specific to TUES. Additional characteristics that have been found to be critical for successful project proposals will also be considered. Among others, these characteristics include: building and motivating the work; the importance of and how to ensure the adoptability, adaptability, and/or transportability of the work; dissemination; goals; outcomes; diversity; and evaluation.
