IERC 2013-14 Faculty Fellowship Awards
The Illinois Education Research Council at SIUE announces its 2013/14 faculty research fellows. Two faculty fellowships will be funded in the inaugural year of the IERC faculty research fellowship. Dr. Alison Reeves, Department of Educational Leadership, will research Measuring the Outcomes of a Focus on Leading for Educational Equity and Dr. Melodie Rowbotham, Department of Family Health and Community Health Nursing, will study The Impact of Faculty Development on Teacher Self-Efficacy, Teaching Skills, and Retention.
Both of these research projects are aligned with the IERC mission and are related to Illinois education policy objectives and the IERC is pleased to be able to sponsor these promising projects. IERC faculty fellows will receive a course buy-out to allow the fellow time to pursue their research project, support from the IERC in research design and analysis, as needed; and travel funding, upon completion of the study, to disseminate the findings at a research conference. In turn, the fellowships will allow the IERC to increase its research capacity by collaborating with SIUE faculty. Congratulations Drs. Reeves and Rowbotham!
