Advancing Research in the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technological Education Program
Wingate, Lori A.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v41 n6 p370-373 2017
Advanced Technological Education is distinct from typical National Science Foundation programs in that it is essentially a training--not research--program, and most grantees are located at technical and two-year colleges. This article presents empirical data on the status of research in the program, discusses the program's role in supporting NSF's values of intellectual merit and broader impacts, and offers strategies for enhancing research within the program.
