NSF Projects Supporting QL Education
Dates: April 30 and May 1, 2009
Location: University of Washington—Bothell
By Invitation Only
Each participant must submit a project profile by April 15 .
This workshop will bring together members of NSF-funded projects that address quantitative literacy through undergraduate education.
Our goals are:
- to introduce leaders of QL projects to one another and to the NNN.
- to develop a browseable collection of introductions to these projects that will demonstrate the scope of NSF funded QL work at the undergraduate level while creating a place where faculty and others can learn about all of the projects.
- to introduce the QL projects to the participants in the NNN Annual meeting.
The workshop will feature a keynote address by Bernie Madison, University of Arkansas; opportunities to learn about other participating projects; and time to refine your project profile.
This workshop is being held on Thursday evening, April 30 and Friday morning and afternoon, May 1 in conjunction with the annual meeting of the National Numeracy Network (NNN). The NNN annual meeting will feature two opportunities to learn more about the NSF-funded projects, a poster session on the afternoon of Friday, May 1 and a panel on Saturday, May 2. Workshop participants are strongly encouraged to stay through May 2. The Saturday morning segment will also feature a keynote by psychologist and numeracy researcher Ellen Peters of Decision Research.
