Summer Undergraduate Research Opportunities in CER

Dear CER Community:

Undergraduate students have asked me to help them find REU summer research programs specifically in chemical education research. I know that CER REU summer programs exist, but I am not familiar with all of the possibilities. I hope that the CER community will direct me to active summer REU CER programs by sending information directly to my email address (GautamB@MissouriState.edu).

THANKS!

Passing of Dave Brooks

Dear community members,

It is with great sadness that I report the death of David Brooks. David was a faculty in the Chemistry Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln for many years and engaged in chemical education, especially through the training of K-12 teachers in his later years. He was a strong advocate for instructional technologies. David was an extremely smart individual and was an amazing mentor to all who had the chance to work with him.

Re: CER mail list: NSF Survey for Potential Reviewers - IUSE Development & Implementation by Dawn Rickey

Dear Colleagues,

Apologies for the second message. It looks like the hyperlinks embedded in the original message did not translate, so I am trying a different method.

If you are willing to serve as a reviewer for proposals submitted to NSF’s Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE: EHR) Development & Implementation competition in the chemistry discipline, please fill out the reviewer survey (at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/IUSEDI19).

Dear Colleagues,

If you are willing to serve as a reviewer for proposals submitted to NSF’s Improving Undergraduate STEM Education (IUSE: EHR) Development & Implementation competition in the chemistry discipline, please fill out the reviewer survey.

We expect review panels to meet at NSF Headquarters in Alexandria, Virginia on January 28-29 and/or February 11-12. The brief survey provides more information about the planned review panels, and asks about your areas of expertise.

Thank you for your willingness to assist us in our review process!
