Facilitating Classroom Innovation in the Geosciences Through the NSF's Improving Undergraduate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Education (IUSE) Program

Description: To raise awareness about the Improving Undergraduate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Education (IUSE) program and increase both the quality and quantity of proposals submitted by geoscientists to the program, a proposal writing retreat is being held at the University of South Florida. The IUSE program seeks to improve the quality of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education for all undergraduate students. Activities supported by the IUSE program include the creation, adaptation, and dissemination of learning materials and teaching strategies, development of faculty expertise, implementation of educational innovations, and research on STEM teaching and learning. The IUSE program supports projects in two tracks: Engaged Student Learning (ESL) and Institutional and Community Transformation (ICT).
