How are you currently addressing the NSF requirement for achieving broader impacts? Would you like to learn how to use proven techniques to address this? In partnership with thirteen ATE centers, the Synergy Collaboratory for Research, Practice, and Transformation has a three-year project to explore and confirm the efficacy of concepts, processes, and tools for successful scaling of ATE projects from each of the participating centers. Participants in this workshop will learn about foundational concepts and research of scaling, benefit from the experiences of the centers participating in this collaboration, and begin to practice applying this knowledge in transforming their planning and preparations for scaling.
