Abstract Title: Promoting Institution Change: PER and Policy Working Together
Abstract: After working as a Physics Education Researcher for nearly 15 years, I  received the opportunity to  serve as an American Association for the Advancement of Science - Science and Technology Policy Fellow (AAAS-STPF) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) in Division of Undergraduate Education.  I pursued this fellowship to explore the role of policy in STEM Education.  In this talk, I will present lessons I have learned through this fellowship including ways that policy effects education and education research, and the roles policies play in leading change in education. Additionally, I will reflect on what I have learned about how funding agencies like NSF enact change through policy and reflect on ways that the Physics Education Research community could use this to be more impactful change leaders for science education.
