NSF Career Award Workshop Educational Component Resources at Rutgers
Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program Synopsis “National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of junior faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars through outstanding research, excellent education and the integration of education and research within the context of the mission of their organizations.”
Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Program Synopsis Such activities should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research. NSF encourages submission of CAREER proposals from junior faculty members at all CAREER-eligible organizations and especially encourages women, members of underrepresented minority groups, and persons with disabilities to apply.
CAREER Program Description This premier program emphasizes the importance the Foundation places on the early development of academic careers dedicated to stimulating the discovery process in which the excitement of research is enhanced by inspired teaching and enthusiastic learning. Effective integration of research and education generates a synergy in which the process of discovery stimulates learning and assures that the findings and methods of research are quickly and effectively communicated in a broader context and to a larger audience.
CAREER Program Successful PIs will propose creative, integrative, and effective research and education plans, developed within the context of the mission, goals and resources of their organizations, while building a firm foundation for a lifetime of contributions to the research, education and their integration.
Rutgers University Mission As the sole comprehensive public research university in the state's system of higher education, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, has the threefold mission of: providing for the instructional needs of New Jersey's citizens through its undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education programs; conducting the cutting-edge research that contributes to the medical, environmental, social and cultural well-being of the state, as well as aiding the economy and the state’s businesses and industries; and performing public service in support of the needs of the citizens of the state and its local, county, and state governments.

CAREER Award “Challenges” teacher-scholars integrate research and education within the context of the mission of the University (RU Learning Goals) stimulating the discovery process with inspired teaching and enthusiastic learning findings and methods of research are quickly and effectively communicated in a broader context and to a larger audience creative, integrative, and effective research and education plans lifelong integration of research and education
Educational Component Teaching Philosophy: “A statement of the faculty member's personal teaching philosophy and goals, and the strategies and methods used to attain those goals.”
Teaching Philosophy Teaching “Credo” - your beliefs about teaching and learning Why do you teach the way you do? What methods do you use to integrate research and teaching? How do you know you are being effective? integrate research and education stimulating the discovery process effectively communicated in a broader context creative, integrative, and effective education plans
