Writing a grant to NSF or another agency? The most effective (and fundable) broader impacts/outreach plans represent a partnership approach to fulfilling a societal need. But how do we grant-writers know what Montana citizens really need so that we can create effective university-community partnerships? Come participate in this series of “Outreach Partner Roundtables” and explore pathways to partnering. This event will benefit you the next time you write a broader impacts / outreach plan for a grant proposal, as you’ll have a better idea of what Montana citizens need and how we can work together to maximize the impact of our research and creative work.
Speaker: Michelle McCarthy, science instructional coordinator, Montana Office of Public Instruction. Michelle will talk to us about what it’s like for Montana teachers at the elementary, middle school and high school level; what challenges and opportunities Montana schools face regarding Next Generation Science Standards and other state-level initiatives and issues; and how teachers approach their own professional development opportunities. She will also answer questions about how we as a university can better support Montana’s K-12 science teachers.
