Training for fellows will begin in Summer or Fall, 2012 and take place via (a) mentored professional development, independent writing, and grant development; (b) immersion in large-scale, federally-funded applied science education research; and (c) didactic research training. Fellows will have an opportunity to assume a leadership role on at least one large-scale research project directed by senior research personnel. Within this role, they will (a) assist in the conceptualization and management of existing and follow-up research, (b) apply methodological and data analytic approaches in addressing research questions, and (c) supervise data collection/management/analysis and implementation efforts. In addition, they will be encouraged to establish independent strands of research culminating in the solicitation of grant funds.
