Message 1: NSF: Research and Evaluation on Education in Science and Engineering
Date: 21-Mar-2006
From: Joan Maling <jmalingnsf.gov>
Subject: NSF: Research and Evaluation on Education in Science and Engineering

NSF solicitation 06-537 Research and Evaluation on Education in
Science and Engineering (REESE)


Brief letters of intent are required, and are due Tuesday, March 28.
Full proposals are due in May:

* May 15, 2006 for Empirical Research and Evaluation Project proposals
* May 29, 2006 for Synthesis Research and Evaluation Project proposals

The Division of Research, Evaluation and Communication (REC) in the
Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR) of the National
Science Foundation (NSF) supports basic and applied research and
evaluation that enhances science, technology, engineering and
mathematics (STEM) learning and teaching. This solicitation calls for
two types of proposals: synthesis and empirical.

- Synthesis Research and Evaluation Project proposals/ should identify areas
where the knowledge base in either evaluation or research is sufficiently robust
to support strong scientific claims, identify areas of importance to education
research and practice, and propose rigorous methods for synthesizing findings
and drawing conclusions. Proposals for workshops and other meetings are permitted.

- Empirical Research and Evaluation Project proposals/ should identify areas
that have the potential for advancing discovery and innovation at the frontiers
of STEM learning. These proposals are expected to be based deeply in the STEM
disciplines and be theoretically and methodologically strong with the potential
of contributing to theory, methodology, and practice.

For either type of proposal, areas of interest include behavioral,
cognitive, social, and technological aspects of learning and education;
learning in formal and informal settings; diffusion, implementation, and
the role of context in educational and learning innovations; and
theoretical, methodological, and statistical issues of importance in
advancing research and evaluation. Investigators from across the broad
range of disciplines supported by the NSF are invited to submit
proposals. Interdisciplinary proposals are particularly welcome.

Please contact Gregg Solomon nsf.gov> for further information.
