STEM Central

A Community of Practice for NSF STEM Projects

STEM Central Short Course Part 1: Foundations of Culturally Responsive Evaluation (1 of 3)

This is the first of a three-part STEM Central Lecture Series: Program Evaluation Principles and Strategies for NSF-Funded STEM Reform Practitioners. . In this series, NSF PIs will learn about the purposes of evaluation and the multiple methods of evaluation that can be used to demonstrate the effectiveness of advanced undergraduate STEM teaching strategies. The lecture series will address such topics as study design, data analysis, and data interpretation. This lecture series will also blend the foundations and issues of evaluation with methods of data collection and the importance of cultural responsiveness – all with a particular emphasis on NSF STEP and S-STEM projects. Each lecture builds upon the previous, and thus we encourage our attendees to register for and attend all three webinars.
