Activities: How can the Reinvention Center help you?
The Reinvention Center can assist with the development and implementation
of educational assessment, outreach and dissemination activities in conjunction
with grant-funded programs. The NSF, for instance, requires all proposals
to explicitly address the "Broader Impact" of the funded activity:
"Effective integration of research and education at all levels infuses
learning with the excitement of discovery and assures that the findings
and methods of research are quickly and effectively communicated in a
broader context and to a larger audience" (from "Merit Review
Broader Impacts Criterion: Representative Activities," http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2003/nsf032/bicexamples.pdf).
The Reinvention Center can:
- Serve as a resource by providing information on educational outreach
activities and research findings and assisting campuses in new efforts;
- Carry out assessment of specific activities, including placing those
activities in a larger context; and
- Serve as an agent for dissemination of outreach activities and project
findings by circulating information through its regional and disciplinary
networks, Web site, listservs, conferences, and other activities. Since
regional meetings are attended by some 250 faculty and staff who come
from nearly 100 public and private institutions and represent a wide
spectrum of academic and professional interests, they provide an ideal
forum for bringing knowledge, information, and models of successful
initiatives to the larger research university community.
Please contact us for more information on how we can help you implement, disseminate,
and assess your educational outreach activities.
