Description: CAREER proposal reviewers consider the intellectual merit and broader impact of both education and research plans, including how you plan to assess educational impact. The first step in crafting a persuasive assessment for your education plan is to clearly define your objectives for student learning. Even if you are just beginning to formulate your plans, or if you already have an initial idea, this workshop will help you formulate measurable learning objectives for your proposed education activities. We will also discuss how to align assignments or assessments, and other measures of impact with your learning objectives over the course of your project, and at its completion.
Description: This session will provide an opportunity to workshop the draft of your education objectives and assessment plan with Dr. Morgan and other NSF CAREER applicants.
Description: In this small-group session, an informal review of participants’ Overview and Objectives sections roughly simulates discussion by NSF review panel.
