2:30 – 4:00 p.m. | Zoom Webinar


STEM researchers are increasingly turning to international education to fulfill their broader impact requirements. This workshop/webinar is designed to provide researchers with insights about NSF’s internationalizing education priorities, good practices for international education, faculty-led case studies, evaluation tools, and introduction to campus resources to support pre-award, implementation, and evaluation of internationalized Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education. Participants will leave this session with practical ideas for internationalizing STEM education and for evaluating those activities, as a way of fulfilling broader impacts requirements.
