DBER REU Announcement

Hi Stacey,

I wonder if we might post the announcement, below, on the CER Listserv. Also, please feel free to share with any prospective undergrads that you might know.


The Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Science and Mathematics Educational Research Collaborative, an interdisciplinary Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) group, will host a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program this year. Ten accepted students will be involved in mentored-research projects that focus on the theme of Models and Representations in STEM Education and will contribute to publishable research in DBER. Accepted students will participate in a unique "January Jump-Start" session to meet and work virtually, using video conferencing and online journal club discussions, with project mentors to outline summer projects. During the 9 week on-site experience at the RIT campus REU students will be involved in cohort-wide research methods workshops, smaller research group meetings, individual mentoring, Professional Development workshops and cohort-building events. REU students will earn a $5,000 stipend ($500 of which will be earned during the January session) and will be housed, at no expense to the student, in RIT's state-of-the-art housing complex, Global Village.

Since accepted students begin participation in January, this REU program has an early deadline of November 30th.
