NSF AISL Program Solicitation Webinar Series

NSF AISL Program Solicitation Webinar Series



The Center for Advancement of Informal Science Education (CAISE) works in cooperation with the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Advancing Informal Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) Learning (AISL) Program to build and advance the informal STEM education field by providing infrastructure, resources and connectivity for educators, researchers, evaluators, and other interested stakeholders.

CAISE is holding a series of webinars on the current AISL Program Solicitation. View recordings and slides from the previous webinars, and mark your calendars for upcoming sessions. 

AISL proposals are due on November 6, 2017.

Upcoming presentations: 

How to Use InformalScience.org to Make Your Case
Thu, Sep 14, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM EDT

InformalScience.org is a curated collection of project, research, and evaluation resources designed to support the informal STEM education community working in a variety of learning environments. This session will provide useful tips and suggestions for using the site while developing proposals, from conducting literature searches to identifying potential collaborators.

How to Write a Competitive AISL Proposal
Tue, Sep 19, 2017 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Description: In this webinar, AISL Program Officers will highlight: (a) essential elements that should be in every strong AISL proposal, (b) proposal deficiencies to avoid, and (c) key differences between a highly competitive proposal and a proposal that is not competitive. This will also be an opportunity to ask questions and receive responses from AISL Program Officers in real time.

AISL & Broadening Participation
Fri, Sep 22, 2017 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EDT

Description: As agency and program priorities, broadening participation research and efforts to attract, prepare and support a diverse STEM workforce are of great interest. As such, the aim of this webinar is to provide guidance to project teams that are interested in pursuing research and development work in which broadening participation within informal STEM learning contexts is a primary goal.  The two AISL broadening participation related solicitation-specific criteria will be unpacked and portfolio exemplars will be shared. This webinar is ideal for any effort that intends to target an underrepresented group in STEM.
