Shortlidge, Erin E.; Rain-Griffith, Liz; Shelby, Chloe; Shusterman, Gwendolyn P.; Barbera, Jack – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
Embedding active learning is a common mechanism for meeting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education reform goals. Researchers have identified student benefits from such strategies, yet these benefits may not be universal for all students. We sought to identify how students at a nontraditional university perceive…

Liu, Chenchen; Sands-Meyer, Sarah; Audran, Jacques – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
Flipped classes are well-known for reversing the typical in-class lecture and out-of-class homework structure by instructing students to learn by themselves from on-line learning materials and inviting them to ask questions based on their individual difficulties in class. Many attempts at integrating this teaching method into English as a foreign…

Yabuno, Kristen; Luong, Ethan; Shaffer, Justin F. – HAPS Educator, 2019
Student response systems (SRSs) are widely used in anatomy and physiology courses as a form of active learning. While traditional SRSs (clickers) are pervasive, gamified SRSs such as Kahoot! are becoming increasingly popular. However, the impact of using both types of systems in the same course is unknown. The goal of this study was to determine…

Hymers, Devin; Newton, Genevieve – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2019
Educational techniques that improve student engagement have repeatedly been shown to improve performance at the class level at many institutions and in multiple disciplines. However, knowledge of engagement in individual activities in large first-year classes, where there may be several subpopulations of students in different programs reflecting…

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…

Papadopoulos, Pantelis M.; Natsis, Antonis; Obwegeser, Nikolaus; Weinberger, Armin – Journal of Computer Assisted Learning, 2019
The aim of the present study (n = 113) was to examine how (objective and subjective) information on peers' preparation, confidence, and past performance can support students in answering correctly in audience response systems (aka clickers). The result analysis shows that in the "challenging" questions, in which answers diverged,…

Duzhin, Fedor; Gustafsson, Anders – Education Sciences, 2018
Course instructors need to assess the efficacy of their teaching methods, but experiments in education are seldom politically, administratively, or ethically feasible. Quasi-experimental tools, on the other hand, are often problematic, as they are typically too complicated to be of widespread use to educators and may suffer from selection bias…

Cooper, Katelyn M.; Krieg, Anna; Brownell, Sara E. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2018
Academic self-concept is one's perception of his or her ability in an academic domain and is formed by comparing oneself to other students. As college biology classrooms transition from lecturing to active learning, students interact more with each other and are likely comparing themselves more to other students in the class. Student…

Cagande, Jeffrey Lloyd L.; Jugar, Richard R. – Issues in Educational Research, 2018
Reversing the traditional classroom activities, in the flipped classroom model students view lectures at home and perform activities during class period inside the classroom. This study investigated the effect of a flipped classroom implementation on college physics students' motivation and understanding of kinematics graphs. A Solomon four-group…

Cheng, Louis T. W.; Wang, Jacqueline Wenjie – Journal of Teaching in International Business, 2018
The international business education literature suggests that a global mindset can be acquired and benefit students to embrace new ideas and improve their critical thinking. Using a sample of 1,448 undergraduate students in Corporate Finance, International Finance, and Business Law subjects during 2013-2015, our results indicate that students with…

Cakiroglu, Unal; Erdogdu, Fatih; Gokoglu, Seyfullah – Contemporary Educational Technology, 2018
Clickers as electronic response systems allow students to respond instantly to questions. The aim of this study is to compare the effects of using clickers on student participation during different periods of EFL courses. The intervention was implemented in question-response sessions of an EFL course at a secondary school. A quasi-experimental…

Wettstein, Stephanie G. – Advances in Engineering Education, 2018
In-class example problems that students work out on their own using active problem-solving are typically well received and help the students better learn the material; however, they are difficult to enact in large classes with limited resources due to the number of questions received and the speed at which different students work through the…

Shin, Youhyun; Park, Junghyuk; Lee, Sang-goo – Interactive Learning Environments, 2018
Blended learning has steadily gained in popularity at the higher levels of education. This marks a change in pedagogical approaches from one-directional instruction to an interactive and technology-aided class. However, to manage fluent in-class activities and proper data analysis, real-time and fine-grained data collection activities are still…

Wang, Yi-Hsuan – Educational Technology & Society, 2017
The purpose of the present study was to examine the effects of integrating a cloud-based cross-device interactive response system (CCIRS) on enhancing students' classical Chinese learning. The system is a cloud-based IRS system which provides instructors and learners with an environment in which to achieve immediate interactive learning and…
