You are invited to participate in a webcast on the NSF's new program, Promoting Research and Innovation in Methodologies for Evaluation (PRIME). PRIME Program Officers will share information on the new solicitation and answer questions posed by the audience. An archived version will also be available from the same website. The webcast will be closed-captioned.
We have two informational webcasts.

From the PRIME solicitation:
The Promoting Research and Innovation in Methodologies for Evaluation (PRIME) program seeks to support research on evaluation with special emphasis on exploring innovative new approaches for determining the impacts and usefulness of evaluations of STEM education projects and programs; building on and expanding the theoretical foundations for evaluating STEM education and workforcedevelopment initiatives, including translating and adapting approaches from other fields; and growing the capacity and infrastructure of the evaluation field. Two types of proposals will be supported by the program: Exploratory Projects that include proof-of-concept and feasibility studies and more extensive Full-Scale Projects.
