Marilyne Stains will receive the $941,174 Faculty Early Career Development Program Award from the National Science Foundation. The awards typically go to pre-tenure faculty who exemplify the role of teacher-scholars.
Stains has already done substantial research on the subject, developing and conducting education workshops to train UNL faculty in new teaching methods. She said she believes the grant will allow her to launch a study that should lead to better understanding of what faculty already know about new educational strategies, their beliefs about teaching and other factors that influence teaching methods.
