FIU Science Collaborative

The faculty scholar program provides funding and support for faculty from the physics, chemistry, and biology departments to transform a course they teach. Applications are due in early spring, with awards made mid-spring semester. Faculty scholars work to redesign their course with another faculty mentor who has experience in discipline-based education research (DBER). Preliminary planning is carried out in spring and completed in summer, and the revised course is taught and assessed in the following fall and spring.

Further details are available in the application and by contacting Laird Kramer (Laird.Kramer@fiu.edu) or Adrienne Traxler (altraxle@fiu.edu, extension 5946).

DEADLINE FOR SPRING 2014 FEBRUARY 28th.
