WIDER Steering Committee Accepting Proposals for 2017 SSTEP Fellows

The WIDER Steering Committee is now accepting proposals for faculty-driven course reform projects to improve STEM education and student success at Wayne State University.

This program is funded through a five-year NSF grant (1524878), Student Success Through Evidence-based Pedagogies (SSTEP).  Faculty in STEM departments are invited to submit proposals for course reform projects leading to the implementation of evidence-based practices and learner-centered classroom experiences.  Preference will be given to developmental and foundational courses for STEM majors, though upper-division classes impacting degree completion will also be considered.

Two information sessions will be held for faculty to ask questions about their proposals and the review process.  Additionally, questions can be directed to the PI, Andrew Feig (afeig@chem.wayne.edu).  The information sessions will be held:

  • December 6, 2016 at 10 AM, Maccabees Building, Conference Room A
  • January 5, 2017 at 1 PM, Purdy/Kresge Teaching Commons, Room 150.

The request for proposals can be found here.  Proposals are due February 8, 2017.
