The Interdisciplinary Research Institute in STEM Education (I-RISE) is recruiting Scholars for 2013. 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. The 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 dates of the 2013 I-RISE are August 5-20. Scholars must commit to attending the entire I-RISE (no late arrivals, early departures, or missed days, except weekends).
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The deadline to apply is March 29, 2013.
