Are you engaged in evidence-generating activities in education research? Are you focused on some aspect of the education continuum: discipline-based preK-12 education, undergraduate education, graduate education, teacher education, faculty development, workforce development, etc.? Are you looking for a community of colleagues to advance your research/scholarly efforts?
High quality evidence-generating education research combines knowledge of a discipline, the challenges of student success in that discipline and the research of student success, generally. If you identify with this type of research, consider attending this workshop that will be highlighting the Spencer Foundation and funding opportunities for discipline-based education research. Information will also be shared concerning best practices when working with the UC Foundation and the benefits that your research can have when applying to foundations where there is a relationship already formed.
Attendees will also learn about the discipline-based education research (DBER) community and be provided with additional information on how to join the community listserv.
If you are interested in attending, you may also submit questions in advance
by emailing them to Research Development
