2012 I-RISE Application

The Interdisciplinary Research Institute in STEM Education (I-RISE) is recruiting Scholars for 2012. The I-RISE is a high-intensity summer research experience in which teams of researcher-videographers gather in Seattle to observe, document, and reflect on innovative K-12 professional development courses offered at Seattle Pacific University. I-RISE is a hub of collaboration for interdisciplinary research on teacher professional development, conceptual understanding of energy, learning theories, and formative assessment practices. We welcome applications from a wide range of backgrounds and levels of expertise.

The application consists of a basic questionnaire and a short reflection on a video episode provided by the I-RISE Directors. To gain access to the video, contact Rachel Scherr (rescherr@gmail.com).

The deadline to apply is March 15, 2012.
