Adopting Research-based Instructional Strategies for Enhancing (ARISE)

ARISE (Adopting Research-based Instructional Strategies for Enhancing) STEM EDUCATION is a NSF-funded institutional-level project aimed at improving student learning by enriching the way STEM courses are taught at the University of Nebraska. The project offers professional development opportunities for faculty and strives to foster cross-departmental comparisons of teaching cultures and efforts to elevate the importance of teaching in faculty evaluation. The goals of ARISE's campus activities are to enrich the way STEM courses are taught at UNL and to facilitate departmental change in how teaching is valued, evaluated, and rewarded. 
 
External evaluation of this project is being conducted by the STEM Education Evaluation Center (SEEC) of TERC in Boston, led by Dr. James K. L. Hammerman, Director of SEEC.  SBSRC provides local evaluation support to TERC for this project.
