The Discipline-based Science Education Research Center (dB-SERC) is seeking proposals for course transformation awards from the natural sciences faculty members in the Dietrich School of Arts & Sciences.
The awards are to transform courses and improve student learning in those courses by adapting evidence-based practices and to facilitate faculty growth as teacher scholars consistent with dB-SERC’s mission to improve teaching and learning of natural sciences at Pitt.
All full-time natural sciences faculty members in the Dietrich School of Arts & Sciences who teach undergraduate courses at the Oakland campus are eligible to submit proposals. Collaborations between faculty members in the Dietrich School and the School of Computing and Information, the Swanson School of Engineering, or other disciplines are also eligible as long as one of the project directors is a faculty member in the Dietrich School.
The deadline for submissions is March 1. Several grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded to cover projects undertaken between May 1, 2022 and Aug. 31, 2023.
All proposals must be emailed to the dB-SERC proposal email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
