Fellow nominations due
The Community for Advancing Discovery Research in Education (CADRE), a resource network funded by the National Science Foundation, supports researchers and developers who participate in Discovery Research K-12 (DR K-12) projects on teaching and learning in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines.
- helps grantees to share methods, findings, results, and products, helping to build collaboration around a strong portfolio of STEM education resources, models, and technologies;
- collects evidence of impact and disseminates contributions of the projects for improving educational practice and policy; and
- supports the community’s emerging researchers and developers as an essential part of building the capacity for quality research and development within the DR K-12 program and the greater STEM education community.
The CADRE Fellowship, now in its second year, is a capacity building experience for early career researchers and developers to gain exposure to STEM education research and researchers working beyond the Fellow’s particular project and institution, network with colleagues from across the country, and gain insights into NSF and what it takes to be successful and effective in this work. Fellowship activities include attending the 2010 DR K-12 PI Meeting held December 1-3 in Washington, D.C., participating in a series of calls on topics related to career development, engaging in the content of a special interest group or working group, and contributing content to the CADRE web site.
As noted by Fellows from prior years,
“I now feel like I am capable of learning more about how to participate in and contribute to the science education community and the NSF science community at large.”
“Going to the PI meeting last November was a great opportunity and enabled me to meet and network with researchers in my field and in adjacent fields.”
A cohort of up to 10 individuals will be selected to participate for the 2010-2011 year. Participants will receive a $1,000 stipend to cover travel and lodging for the PI meeting. Applications must be received by CADRE@edc.org no later than Thursday, September 23, 2010. Nominees and PIs will be notified of CADRE’s decision by Thursday, September 30, 2010.
