Fall 2012 Webinars

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MSP PROGRAM IS NEGOTIATING AN AWARD FOR AN EVALUATION TECHNICAL ASSITANCE PROJECT; AS THE SOLICITATION INDICATED THAT ONLY ONE (1) SUCH PROJECT WOULD BE FUNDED, FURTHER PROPOSALS ON THIS TOPIC SHOULD NOT BE SUBMITTED IN DECEMBER 2012.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MSP PROGRAM HAS MADE AN AWARD FOR A STEM EDUCATION RESOURCE COLLABORATORY; AS THE SOLICITATION INDICATED THAT ONLY ONE (1) COLLABORATORY WOULD BE FUNDED, FURTHER PROPOSALS ON THIS TOPIC SHOULD NOT BE SUBMITTED IN DECEMBER 2012.

FALL 2012 Webinars  NSF offered five webinars for proposals that will be submitted for the December 18, 2012 due date in response to NSF MSP Solicitation 12-518.  Each webinar addressed one of the five focal areas listed in the Solicitation:

  • Preparation of proposals for the Current Issues Related to STEM Content
  • Preparation of proposals for the K-12 STEM Teacher Preparation
  • Preparation of RETA (Research, Evaluation and Technical Assistance) proposals for research on state plans for STEM education projects that conduct research in the context of states conducting needs assessments, identifying and coordinating their STEM assets, and creating all-encompassing plans for K-12 STEM education
  • Preparation of proposals for the Identifying and Cultivating Exceptional Talent
  • Preparation of proposals for the Community Enterprise for STEM Learning

These webinars were recorded and are now available for viewing at the URL below

SYNOPSIS

The Math and Science Partnership (MSP) program is a major research and development effort that supports innovative partnerships to improve K-12 student achievement in mathematics and science. MSP projects are expected to raise the achievement levels of all students and significantly reduce achievement gaps in the STEM performance of diverse student populations. MSP projects contribute to what is known in K-12 STEM education. All STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields supported by NSF may be involved in this work, with special encouragement to areas that are gaining increased traction at the K-12 level, such as computer science and engineering, in addition to mathematics and science. MSP projects also serve as models that have a sufficiently strong evidence/research base to improve STEM education outcomes for all students. 

Through this solicitation, NSF seeks to support two levels of Targeted Partnership awards, Implementation and Prototype. Implementation awards are intended to develop and put into practice innovative approaches and strategies in education. Prototype awards explore potentially innovative approaches and strategies in education. Both types of Partnerships incorporate significant new innovations to STEM education, linked to a strong educational research agenda, in one of four focal areas: Community Enterprise for STEM Learning; Current Issues Related to STEM Content; Identifying and Cultivating Exceptional Talent; and K-12 STEM Teacher Preparation. In addition, there are three types of Research, Evaluation and Technical Assistance (RETA) project opportunities in this solicitation: research related to sustainability, or policies, or state plans for STEM education; technical assistance for evaluators of MSP projects; and the STEM Education Resource Collaboratory.
