Abstract Title: Increasing the Impact of Educational Innovations: PI and PD views of Successful Dissemination
Abstract: Education researchers have developed many new methods and innovations for teaching college-level STEM courses. Although these methods can document significantly improved student learning, they often do not spread beyond the developers. The Increasing the Impact project will examine successfully propagated projects and identify strategies they used to promote adaptation of their ideas at other institutions. The goal is to help future innovators incorporate propagation strategies into their projects at the earliest stages, matching the type of innovation with a specific plan to promote adoption of their work by others. We have begun this project by identifying the initial ideas about successful propagation held two important groups of stakeholders.  This poster will describe preliminary results of a web survey of NSF-funded principal investigators and NSF program directors in one education-related program.
