Who We Are

College Level One Mission
The National Institute for Science Education's (
NISE) College Level One (CL-1) Team, based at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, is a nationwide community of post-secondary science, mathematics, engineering, and technology (SMET) faculty, education researchers, faculty developers, and students.

We are sponsoring year-long College Level One Institutes, which bring together nationally recognized post-secondary SMET faculty and education researchers to synthesize knowledge in critical areas of undergraduate SMET education. This knowledge is then disseminated in forms designed for SMET faculty seeking to improve their students' learning.

1997-1998, Collaborative Learning Institute
Collaborative Learning (CL) encourages active student participation in the learning process. It encompasses a set of approaches to education, sometimes also called cooperative learning or small group learning. CL creates an environment "that involves students in doing things and thinking about the things they are doing",1  and reaches students who otherwise might not be engaged. Finally, CL is one teaching strategy among many, each of which can play a role to make learning an active and effective process.
