Two REU programs at NDSU

Dear colleagues,

I have two exciting news to share.

1. We are excited to announce the 10th year of our summer REU in discipline-based education at North Dakota State University. Our program is an excellent opportunity for students interested in learning and teaching of STEM at the undergraduate level. Students work in a cohort of undergraduate scholars over a 10-week period during the summer and are immersed in hands-on research experiences in discipline-based education research. Students are housed on-campus and earn a $6000 stipend.

Save the Date for the 2023 Transforming Institutions Conference, June 12-14!


Dear Colleagues,

I work with the Accelerating Systemic Change Network (ASCN) which is an organization aimed at advancing systemic change in STEM higher education. I would be delighted to see more CER folks participate in the network and in the Transforming Institutions conference. Please read below for more information and share with your networks. Keynote speakers, location, and call for proposals are soon to follow!

Post-Doc Position at Portland State University

Dear CER Colleagues,

I am posting this ad (below) on behalf of my BER colleague, Dr. Erin Shortlidge as the post-doc position she has is open to all DBER researchers.

While I am not a part of Dr. Shortlidge's NSF funded project, our groups are co-located, work closely together at times, and run joint group meetings. Therefore, if a CER researcher was brought onboard, they would interact with and have access to me and my group.
