Many faculty have ideas for new education projects but may not be sure of how to turn that idea into a fundable proposal. This interactive workshop will help engineering faculty understand the elements of a competitive proposal and get them started on preparing a proposal for submission. It will cover key elements of proposals, helpful hints and fatal flaws, and how the submission and review process works. This workshop will also describe current opportunities for funding of engineering education projects available through the National Science Foundation. NSF education programs span the range from foundational to scale-up research, and include opportunities for investigators new to educational research. There are also programs intended to support institutional change efforts.
