The NSF's Course Curriculum and Laboratory Improvement (CCLI) program has been renamed the Transforming Undergraduate Education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (TUES) program.  Along with the name change there have been modifications to the program objectives and review criteria.  The Office of Sponsored Programs has registered for an informational web conference hosted by the Grants Resource Center.  This session will include a presentation by the NSF Division of Undergraduate Education (DUE) program director Russell Pimmel, who will provide a detailed description of the TUES solicitation, including its increased emphasis on transformation, transferability, and dissemination.  There will be two additional presentations by frequent CCLI review panel members.

This program is meant to develop and enhance undergraduate STEM education.  Projects can focus on: developing learning materials and strategies, implementing new instructional techniques, developing faculty expertise, assessing and evaluating student achievement, and/or conducting research on undergraduate STEM education and learning.  For more information see the full solicitation at http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=5741.

The deadline for Type I TUES proposals is May 26, 2010.  This session would be very helpful for those of you preparing submissions or resubmissions for this year.  This is also an excellent opportunity to learn more about the program and begin planning for FY 11 or FY 12 submissions!
