We are deeply committed to increasing concrete opportunities for NC-FEW community members to contribute directly to community activities. Toward that end, we will be forming a number of committees, each of which will provide leadership and help direct and coordinate NC-FEW activities focused on specific community outcomes and products. These include best practices is FEW-focused education, best practices in FEW-focused education research, grant proposal development, and other critical community components. Each committee is expected to be comprised of 3-5 individuals representing the educational contexts reflected in the working groups (K-12, informal/nonformal, postsecondary), with individual committee members serving as liaisons to the working groups. Our goal is for the working groups and committees to work synergistically toward NC-FEW goals to 1) synthesize current education research on educational programming grounded in the FEW-Nexus; 2) identify and promote best practices in education research on educational programming grounded in the FEW-Nexus; 3) foster collaboration among community members representing diverse disciplines, fields, expertise, and institutions; 4) enhance capacity for extramural funding in support of education research on educational programming grounded in the FEW-Nexus; and 5) cultivate a community identity among NC-FEW participants. The committees will be an important element of NC-FEW’s organizational structure and committee members will provide critical leadership to the community. If you are interested in serving on a NC-FEW committee, please complete a brief online interest form. We will be actively working to form these committees in the upcoming months and hope that many of you will choose to provide leadership to the NC-FEW community in this way.
