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…

Houser, Chris; Nunez, Judy; Miller, Kate – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
The adoption of enrollment-based budgeting at many institutions poses serious problems for geoscience programs that have been facing enrollment challenges in recent years, particularly in response to drops in the price of oil and gas. This commentary describes the impetus for, and results of, the Pathways to the Geosciences program at Texas…

Arthurs, Leilani – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
The National Research Council's report, "Discipline-Based Education Research: Understanding and Improving Learning in Undergraduate Science and Engineering" (Singer, Nielsen, & Schweingruber, 2012), states that discipline-based education research (DBER), such as geoscience education research (GER), is informed by research about…

Resnick, Ilyse; Kastens, Kim A.; Shipley, Thomas F. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
This study identifies a population of students who have an intermediate amount of relevant content knowledge and skill for working with data, and characterizes their approach to interpreting a challenging data-based visualization. Thirty-three undergraduate students enrolled in an introductory environmental science course reasoned about salinity…

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…

Meagher, Brian J.; Cataldo, Kirstyn; Douglas, Bruce J.; McDaniel, Mark A.; Nosofsky, Robert M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
A highly controlled laboratory experiment was conducted that suggested computer-based image training of rock classifications can provide a useful supplement to physical rock training. Two groups of participants learned to classify samples of 12 major types of rocks during a training phase. One group was trained using computer images of the rock…

Soja, Constance M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
In an introductory geology course on vertebrate fossils, a new object-based classroom exercise was designed to enhance students' appreciation for evidence of evolution as a "tinkering" process, specifically in modern organisms with which everyone is familiar. During the dissection of a popular college late-night snack (barbeque-style…

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…

McNeal, Peggy; Ellis, Todd; Petcovic, Heather – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
A survey with nine meteorological charts, maps, and images from a 2015 significant weather event was administered to meteorologists (N = 93) to identify which spatial thinking skills they report using with each chart, map, and image. Results reveal high reported use of mental animation (74.6%), disembedding (72.4%), and perspective taking (71.6%)…

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…

Stokes, Alison; Harmer, Nichola – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
Active, student-centered pedagogies such as project-based learning (PjBL) can offer significant potential for engaging undergraduates with complex sustainability issues. Driven by institution-wide curriculum changes and informed by educational theories and evidence from previous studies, a trial PjBL activity was designed and delivered on three…
