faculty members develop good ideas for engineering education research projects
that they convert into National Science Foundation (NSF) proposals. This workshop
describes common proposal weaknesses and describes approaches for dealing with
them. The workshop leads participants to develop proposals that
a broader impact in both rationale and goals
and build on others' experiences
learning goals, students' impressions, and outcomes
proactive and aggressive dissemination.
a series of team exercises, participants explore these issues, compare their ideas
