UC Santa Barbara - Mixture Modeling Training for Discipline-Based Education Researchers


Mixture Modeling for Discipline-Based Education Researchers (MM4DBERs) is a training program funded through the National Science Foundation (Award Number 2224786) that will provide online training and mentoring to support the application of mixture modeling to participants' own research questions. This training is available to Discipline-Based Education Researchers (DBERs) who are actively conducting research on critical questions in STEM education around diversity, equity, and inclusion. Mixture modeling is a powerful tool for uncovering heterogeneity in student experiences and providing a richer way of understanding the experiences of students typically underrepresented in STEM fields. Although mixture modeling is not yet common among DBER scholars, it is a well-established tool with great potential to enrich the field's understanding of DEI-related issues in STEM education. 

Applications are available on February 15, 2023. Applications are due April 15, 2023. Participants will be notified by June 1, 2023. The training will start in August 2023.
