Mayhew, Emma – Journal of Political Science Education, 2019
New cohorts of students expect universities to meaningfully incorporate the use of technology-enhanced learning within their provision and they respond particularly well to an active approach to learning. One response has been for colleagues to make use of audience-response systems. The existing literature suggests that the use of these platforms…

Parga, Jennifer A.; Bargar, Kathy; Monte, Steve; Supranovich, Ruth A.; Brown, Danielle E. – Journal of Teaching in Social Work, 2019
While research typically utilizes Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) to evaluate online education programs (OEP) compared to on-campus programs (OCP), little attention is given to other qualitative elements which enhance student social presence or faculty teaching presence. The authors examine the Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework and demonstrate…

Erdmann, Robert M.; Stains, Marilyne – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
Classroom observation protocols can provide an exceedingly rich form of data. However, this is a double-edged sword, as researchers often struggle to take full advantage of the detailed data outputs. In this essay, we introduce a new approach to the analysis of classroom observation data, termed "classroom as genome" (CAG). We illustrate…

Combes, Nathan J. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2019
In the summer of 2015, I conducted a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) experiment in my quantitative methods for political science class. The experiment tested if, during instruction, asking conceptual questions improved student learning more than asking recall questions. This article provides evidence that instruction with conceptual…

Deng, Liya – Journal of Electronic Resources Librarianship, 2019
Millennial learning is heavily dependent on the use of mobile technologies for information gathering, processing, and sharing. This project examines how student response systems, such as Poll Everywhere, impact the effectiveness of information literacy instruction in a mid-size academic library. Data collected from Millennial student participants…

In this paper, we explore how assessment technologies can support college and university assessment processes at multiple levels. Our goal is to help you think through your institutional assessment culture and processes, so you can identify tools that support your institution's approach to assessment. Multiple software systems can offer…

Mehring, Jeff – Computers in the Schools, 2016
The flipped classroom can support the implementation of a communicative, student-centered learning environment in the English as a foreign language classroom. Unfortunately, there is little research which supports the incorporation of flipped learning in the English as a foreign language classroom. Numerous studies have focused on flipped learning…

Cassidy, Alice; Fu, Guopeng; Valley, Will; Lomas, Cyprien; Jovel, Eduardo; Riseman, Andrew – Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, 2016
Flexible Learning (FL) is a pedagogical approach allowing for flexibility of time, place, and audience, including but not solely focused on the use of technologies. We describe Flexible Learning as a pedagogical approach in four courses framed by three key themes: 1) objectives and aspects of course design, 2) evaluation and assessment, and 3)…

Walklet, Elaine; Davis, Sarah; Farrelly, Daniel; Muse, Kate – Psychology Teaching Review, 2016
Student response systems (SRS) are hand-held devices or mobile phone polling systems which collate real-time, individual responses to on-screen questions. Previous research examining their role in higher education has highlighted both advantages and disadvantages of their use. This paper explores how different SRS influence the learning experience…

Majumdar, Rwitajit; Iyer, Sridhar – Research and Practice in Technology Enhanced Learning, 2016
Interactive Stratified Attribute Tracking (iSAT) is a visual analytics tool for cohort analysis. In this paper, we show how instructors can use iSAT to visualize transitions of groups of students during teaching-learning activities. Interactive visual analytics gives the instructor the affordance of understanding the dynamics of the class of…

Fong, Michelle – Journal of Information Technology Education: Research, 2015
There is a dearth of research into teaching strategies and learning approaches for units involving sensitive topics that can provoke an emotional response in students. In a business ethics unit, attempts to strike a balance between conceptual knowledge and theory and skills training can be challenging because the unit can involve personal,…

Vicens, Quentin; Caspersen, Michael E. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Despite extensive evidence in favor of student-centered teaching practices over traditional lecturing, most science faculty do not embrace these modes of instruction. Professional development efforts are plentiful, but they can lack in impact or scalability, or both. The factors that determine professional development quality within a research…

Imazeki, Jennifer – Journal of Economic Education, 2014
Over the last few years, classroom response systems (or "clickers") have become increasingly common. Although most systems require students to use a standalone handheld device, bring-your-own-device (BYOD) systems allow students to use devices they already own (e.g., a cell phone, tablet or laptop) to submit responses via text message or…

Dean, David – History Teacher, 2013
Most people are familiar with television quiz shows that use such technologies as Audience Response Systems (ARS) and keypads known as "clickers." A similar technology has been available for teachers. Inserting questions into a PowerPoint presentation or running free-standing software, the class is asked to consider a question and select…
