Are you interested in applying for NSF’s Computer Science for All (CSforAll) RPP solicitation and want to learn more about how to design your RPP project or proposal?
We’d love to see you at one of our upcoming RPP Development Workshops!
Over one-and-a-half days, teams will develop a deeper understanding of what an RPP is, how to form and sustain one, and how to design an RPP project/ proposal. In particular, the workshops will emphasize how to identify and refine the problem of practice your partnership seeks to address, strategies for carrying out the partnership research in support of the identified problem, evaluation questions related to improving your partnership efforts, and the kinds of data you will need to collect to inform and improve your project.
