Title: Alternative Certification Models: NSF Funding Opportunities for Research and
Development

Presenter: Joan Prival, Division of Undergraduate Education, National Science
Foundation

This presentation will provide an overview of NSF programs that offer opportunities for
research and development of alternative pathways to teaching. With a particular focus
on meeting the challenge to increase the number of well-qualified teachers of
mathematics and science, key features of NSF funded projects will be discussed
including collaboration among education, mathematics, and science faculty; strategies for
addressing the need to increase the number of teachers well-prepared to teach standards-
based science and mathematics; and efforts to advance the knowledge base of effective
practices.
