Funders: National Science Foundation
TERC’s Center for School Reform is designing and facilitating a comprehensive resource center and collegial network for NSF’s IGERT program. All IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship) programs across the country will use this electronic infrastructure to share research, resources, and discoveries with each other and the public at large.
The National Science Foundation developed the IGERT program to meet the challenges of educating U.S. scientists, engineers, mathematicians and educators in their chosen disciplines as well as in the technical, professional and personal realms necessary for effective leadership and creative problem-solving in an increasingly complex, technology-driven society. IGERT programs are by nature interdisciplinary and necessitate a collaborative network through which students and faculty can learn from each other, share practices and curricular changes, resources, and emerging research across the thematic links that unite their various disciplines.
The IGERT Resource Center is live as of May 19, 2009.
