NSF Collaboratives for Excellence in Teacher Preparation (CETP) Program

NSF Collaboratives for Excellence in Teacher Preparation (CETP)

This program is no longer accepting proposals. The last proposal deadline was September 1, 1999.

Overview

The CETP program promotes comprehensive change in the undergraduate education of future teachers by supporting cooperative, multiyear efforts to increase substantially the quality and number of teachers well-prepared in science and mathematics, especially members of traditionally underrepresented groups. Projects in the program's two tracks--"System-Wide Focus" and "Institutional Focus"--are developing, implementing, and institutionalizing comprehensive change in teacher preparation. Collaboratives feature creative design of courses and curricula in mathematics and science for both content and method of teaching, incorporating innovative approaches such as integration of mathematics, the sciences, and engineering; use of advanced technologies; applications to engineering and technology; and new methods of student assessment appropriate to the teaching methodologies. Collaboratives derive from the leadership and participation of faculty members in science, mathematics, and engineering departments, in concert with colleagues in education departments and in the pre-K through grade 12 community.
