Al-Ismaily, Said S.; Kacimov, Anvar R.; Al-Maktoumi, Ali K.; Al-Busaidi, Hamad A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Revising standard structured academic programs by incorporating research throughout the curriculum is a modern trend at universities worldwide. There are numerous publications on inquiry-based learning (IBL) in individual courses, but few provide evidence both of success at the program level and of synergy in the teaching--research nexus. Our…

Karsten, Jill L. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
The Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG) program, operational between the years 2001 and 2013, was a signature effort by the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Geosciences (NSF/GEO) to invest in broadening participation of historically underrepresented populations in geoscience education programs and careers.…

Fairfax, Emily; Brown, Megan R. M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
People with disabilities are chronically underrepresented in many geoscience departments across the country. There are a number of proposed reasons why this under-representation persists, one of which is lack of instructor training in designing accessible curriculum and making high-quality accommodations. This not only puts students with…

Soule, Dax; Darner, Rebekka; O'Reilly, C. M.; Bader, Nicholas E.; Meixner, Thomas; Gibson, Catherine A.; McDuff, Russell E. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry and Exploration (EDDIE) modules engage students in analysis of data collected by networks of environmental sensors, which are used to study various natural phenomena, such as nutrient loading, climate change, and stream discharge. We compared two approaches to EDDIE module implementation in an undergraduate…

Kluver, Daria B.; Robertson, Wendy M.; Agardy, Rachael – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
A clear understanding of climate change and its impacts on society is an integral component of scientific literacy today. However, college students in introductory and lower division science courses often struggle to connect with this material in a meaningful way when they do not see how it is relevant to their daily lives. To address this…

Styers, Diane M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
The abundance of freely available, scientific big data sets can facilitate discovery-based authentic science projects saving time, money, and effort. This is especially true of remotely sensed data, as there is global coverage of Earth's surface spanning several decades that can be used for a multitude of applications. In this article, I present…

Teasdale, Rachel; Selkin, Peter; Goodell, Laurel – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
The InTeGrate curriculum, "Living on the Edge: Building Resilient Societies on Active Plate Margins" (LOE), explores geologic hazards and related societal risks at plate boundaries. The curriculum incorporates research-based pedagogical practices and the use of geologic data for students to analyze and interpret. Materials were developed…

Hubenthal, Michael – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
The elastic rebound theory is a fundamental explanatory geoscience construct introduced in most introductory undergraduate geoscience courses. Classroom experience, supported by a recent case study of undergraduate students' model-building activities, indicates that learning this theory tends to be incomplete, in spite of instruction employing…

Lazar, Kelly B.; Moysey, Stephen M.; Brame, Scott; Coulson, Alan B.; Lee, Cindy M.; Wagner, John R. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
It is uncommon for large service courses in geology to provide engaging outdoor activities that effectively mimic the experiences of working geologists, despite the fact that field experiences are a well-established pathway for recruiting students to the geosciences. We address this problem by creating extra credit activities that are integrated…

Dolphin, Glenn; Benoit, Wendy; Burylo, Jessica; Hurst, Emily; Petryshen, Wyatt; Wiebe, Simon – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
Many of the current issues facing humans are geologic in nature. Whether the issue is mitigating the impact of geologic hazards, reducing air and water pollution, managing the energy of mineral resources, or minimizing the impact of anthropogenic global climate change, we require a geosciences-literate population. This is crucial to developing…

Roberts, Jennifer A.; Olcott, Alison N.; McLean, Noah M.; Baker, Gregory S.; Möller, Andreas – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
Implementation of active-learning practices into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses has been shown to increase student learning and performance, improve retention of material, and reduce achievement gaps among different student populations when compared to lecture-based approaches. To this end, we transformed two…

Pelch, Michael A.; McConnell, David A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
A general consensus exists among the leaders of both developed and developing nations that their citizens should be scientifically literate. Therefore, it is important for educational systems to provide students with access to pertinent scientific knowledge, an appreciation for the scientific processes, and the ability to evaluate scientific…

Langbeheim, Elon; Rez, Peter – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
This paper describes the basic tenets of a sustainable energy course for university science majors. First, it outlines the three core components of the course: (1) The scientific evidence for the connection between climate change and energy usage; (2) An analysis of the capacity and environmental impact of various renewable and traditional energy…

Giorgis, Scott; Mahlen, Nancy; Anne, Kirk – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
The augmented reality (AR) sandbox bridges the gap between two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) visualization by projecting a digital topographic map onto a sandbox landscape. As the landscape is altered, the map dynamically adjusts, providing an opportunity to discover how to read topographic maps. We tested the hypothesis that the AR…

Houser, Chris; Bishop, Michael P.; Lemmons, Kelly – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Conceptual models have long served as a means for physical geographers to organize their understanding of feedback mechanisms and complex systems. Analytical reasoning provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to develop conceptual models based upon their understanding of surface processes and environmental conditions. This study…
