The Math and Science Learning and Education (MSLE) Consortium will meet on the first Tuesday of the month from 11am-12pm in SI 4127. On occasion, invited speakers may be scheduled outside this timeframe to accommodate special interests. Following is a summary of upcoming events that should be of interest to MSLE members:
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 – 11:00AM-12:30PM
Writing Effective Broader Impacts
Location: Science 4127
MSLE is in a position to support CLAS STEM faculty in creating and accomplishing broader impact goals related to their research. In this meeting, we will discuss how to write a compelling broader impact statement and what MSLE can do to support the broader impacts related to your grant proposals (e.g., provide access to K-12 teachers and students, support Research Experiences for Teachers).
1. Mike Jacobson, recent Program Officer at the National Science Foundation and CU Denver faculty member, will offer insights about what makes a compelling NSF broader impact statement.
2. John Swallow, Chair of Integrative Biology, will offer the perspective of a successful PI who has worked with MSLE to support the broader impact goals of his research.
3. David Thomas from the Office of the Chancellor will discuss the development of a new part of Canvas called CU Online Open. It will allow schools and colleges to provide MOOC-like online courses, not for credit, to broader audiences. Imagine a MOOC-like, free or low –cost course that would be made available to the public, educating them on research outcomes.
Friday, December 5, 2014 – 2:00PM-3:00PM
