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…

d'Alessio, Matthew A.; Schwartz, Joshua J.; Pedone, Vicki; Pavia, Jenni; Fleck, Jenna; Lundquist, Loraine – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Promoting collaboration and discourse in asynchronous online courses is challenging; students need something engaging to talk about, a communications medium in which to fluidly discuss it, and a social environment that supports discourse. We designed a fully online introductory geoscience lecture and lab course called Geology Goes Hollywood that…

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…

Lang, Nicholas P.; Persico, Lyman P. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
There has been little discussion regarding the design of geology courses (and programs) to be inclusive of students with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Here, we outline challenges instructors may encounter when teaching geology courses with field components that include students with an ASD and describe solutions we have found to be successful…

Jin, Lixin; Doser, Diane; Lougheed, Vanessa; Walsh, Elizabeth J.; Hamdan, Lina; Zarei, Maryam; Corral, Guadalupe – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
The Training in Environmental Research and Academic Success (TIERA) program was created to increase recruitment and retention of environmental science majors at the University of Texas at El Paso, where ~80% of students self-declare Hispanic origin, providing a unique opportunity to increase diversity in the future STEM workforce. Through…

Moss, Elizabeth; Cervato, Cinzia; Genschel, Ulrike; Ihrig, Lori; Ogilvie, Craig A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
This study examines the effects of an extended authentic research experience on students' understanding of the nature of science (NOS) and self-efficacy toward science. The curriculum of an introductory physical geology lab was transformed to include a six-week, student-driven research project focused on local groundwater and surface water issues.…

Sexton, Julie M.; Pugh, Kevin J.; Bergstrom, Cassendra M.; Riggs, Eric M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
Only 40% of geoscience undergraduate degrees are conferred on women. Little research has examined why more men tend to pursue and persist in geology degrees compared to women. We examined the reasons why undergraduate geology students chose to major in geology, with a particular emphasis on women. We collected data from 391 undergraduate students…

Czajka, Charles Doug; McConnell, David – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
Past research has evaluated how preservice teachers, high school students, and introductory college students conceptualize geologic or deep time. The ability to think on geologic timescales is regarded as an important skill in the study of geology, yet little work has specifically addressed how student understanding of this concept evolves during…

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…

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…

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…

Egger, Anne E.; Kastens, Kim A.; Turrin, Margaret K. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) emphasize how human activities affect the Earth and how Earth processes impact humans, placing the concept of sustainability within the Earth and Space Sciences. We ask: how prepared are future teachers to address sustainability and systems thinking as encoded in the NGSS? And how can geoscientists…

Holley, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
This study reports on a case study-based curricular intervention designed to help undergraduate engineering students make connections between geoscience and its applications. Teaching through case studies resulted in a measurable and significant improvement in the confidence that students had in their ability to apply geoscience concepts in an…

Webb, Brian S.; Hayhoe, Doug – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Despite an overwhelming scientific consensus, a significant proportion of the American public continues to reject anthropogenic climate change. This disparity is particularly evident among evangelical Christians, for whom theological conservatism, general scientific skepticism, political affiliations, and sociocultural influences may impede their…

Kortz, Karen M.; van der Hoeven Kraft, Katrien J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Undergraduate research has been shown to be an effective practice for learning science. While this is a popular discussion topic, there are few full examples in the literature for introductory-level students. This paper describes the Geoscience Education Research Project, an innovative course-based research experience designed for…
