“When evaluating NSF proposals, reviewers will be asked to consider what the proposers want to do, why they want to do it, how they plan to do it, how they will know if they succeed, and what benefits could accrue if the project is successful. These issues apply both to the technical aspects of the proposal and the way in which the project may make broader contributions.” GPG Chapter III.A.2
NSF is now asking that investigators have assessment and evaluation measures built into their proposals for both the intellectual merit and broader impacts review criteria. To assist investigators with their broader impacts effort, SP@ISU is offering a workshop, “Broader Impacts Evaluation.” The workshop, to be held Nov. 28, 2012 at the Iowa State Memorial Union, will:
- Provide attendees with evaluation techniques that meet these new NSF standards.
- Give attendees currently working, or interested in working, with undergraduate research or K-12 outreach an opportunity to hear from experts in evaluation for each area.
- Allow attendees to interact with speakers, panel experts, and each other to discuss specific questions and broader impacts activities.
Effective Broader Impacts Evaluation Practices for grants – Morning Session 10:00 – 12:00
Dr. Mack Shelley, Professor of Political Sciences and Statistics, and Mari Kemis, Associate Director of the Research Institute for Studies in Education, will present assessment and evaluation approaches applied to various areas of broader impacts. They will also discuss research and collaboration resources available to PIs. During the second hour of this session, our speakers as well as successful faculty members will give attendees the opportunity to ask questions and discuss evaluation practices for their specific broader impacts activities.
This workshop is open to all graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and staff. Participants need not attend both morning and afternoon sessions.
