The Discussion Document outlines sets of competencies that may serve as core educational elements at both the master’s and Ph.D. levels. The Call for Community Input welcomes general reactions to the competencies and also provides questions for more specific feedback.  The Discussion Document and Call for Community Input will remain open for comment until September 22, 2017.  I would welcome any recommendations on methods for sharing the discussion document to ensure the Committee receives broad and diverse input, and please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. To your previous note regarding researchers who are addressing graduate education issues and developing an infrastructure for robust analyses to document student outcomes, I would be grateful to hear strategies you feel the Committee can use to ensure that we’re addressing those critical points. We’ve begun to a review of the literature, including an advanced copy of former Dean-in-Residence Brian Mitchell’s monograph on graduate education per Nimmi’s recommendation. Tom and I have been working to make sure this is a cornerstone of the Committee’s work, per our original discussion at NSF with the EHR leadership.  I hope you have a chance to enjoy your summer, and I look forward to seeing you on the 23rd.  Many thanks,Layne  Study Director, Committee on Revitalizing Graduate STEM Education for the 21st CenturyProgram Officer, Board on Higher Education and Workforce The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and MedicineOffice: (202) 334-2833 Mobile: (248)
