GREAT Falcon STEM Fellows

The GREAT Falcon STEM Fellow (GFSF) program is a key element in a five-year NSF-funded grant designed to increase the number of STEM graduates at UWRF. This program is specifically tied to "Action 1" of the grant that involves the implementation of "active-learning, student-centered pedagogy." The purpose of this program is to increase the use of proven active teaching pedagogies (e.g., Flipped Classroom, Team-based Learning, Peer Instruction, Studio Physics, Process-Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning – POGIL) in STEM courses. Successful applications will articulate essential course content goals and proposed pedagogical changes surrounding those goals. Faculty should be able to convey that they are interested in change and what types of change they are considering. Small but significant changes are preferable to an entire overhaul of a course. 

Instructional Academic Staff (must have been at UWRF for at least 3 years) or any Tenured or Tenure-track Faculty member who teach one of the following STEM "gate-way" courses are eligible: BIOL 150, 160, 210, 230, 240, CHEM 120, 121, 122, 130, 231, 232, 233, 240. ESM 105, 220, GEOL 101, 150, 230, 231, 269, MATH 147, 149, 166, 167, 236, 256, 266, PHYS 121, 122, 131, 132, 264

Due: February 9, 2015

Applications must be submitted in electronic format after the necessary signatures are obtained. A scanned copy must be attached to an e-mail and sent to fasdb@uwrf.edumail by 4:30 p.m. on the due date. The e-mail subject line must include the grant title and last name of the applicant.
