Dr Ye is awarded an NSF grant in chemical education

Congratulations to Dr. Ye, who has been awarded an IUSE: EDU (Improving Undergraduate STEM Education: Directorate for STEM Education) award from the NSF! The award, for the project titled ” An Investigation of Synergistic Effects of Discipline-based Growth Mindset and Effective Learning Strategies Interventions in Gateway Chemistry Courses”, is worth almost $300,000 over three years, through collaborative research with Drs. Chan and Villafane-Garcia at CSU, Fullerton. Dr. Ye and her collaborators will develop two chemistry-based online interactive modules (Growth Mindset and Effective Strategies) and investigate the synergistic effects of modules for improving students’ mindsets, learning skills, academic success and retention in gateway chemistry courses, and improving diversity in STEM fields. Well done, Dr. Ye!
