Huguet, Carme; Pearse, Jillian; Noè, Leslie F.; Valencia, Diego M.; Ruiz, Nataly Castillo; Heredia, Alexa Jimenez; Avedaño, Mónica Andrea Patiño – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
A collaboration between geoscience professors and pedagogic and technical support experts at Universidad de los Andes led to a teaching innovation, as part of a project entitled GEOC-SENSE. GEOC-SENSE was based on the use of active pedagogy techniques aided by information and communication technologies (ICT) to improve motivation and acquisition…

Dolphin, Glenn; Dutchak, Alex; Karchewski, Brandon; Cooper, Jon – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Recent literature has demonstrated the importance of fieldwork in geology. However, as resources become scarce, field experiences are often targeted for cuts. This was the case at the University of Calgary when massive enrollments placed a tremendous burden on resources. In courses throughout, field trips and other excursions were eliminated,…

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…

von der Heyden, Bjorn P. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
A novel learning intervention has been developed and tested in which honor's level Earth science students were tasked with conducting interviews with established geologists working in the Southern African minerals sector. The task was designed using Laurillard's conversational framework as a theoretical underpinning, which offers an iterative and…

Atchison, Christopher L.; Marshall, Anita M.; Collins, Trevor D. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
This article presents a multiple case study exploring the emergence of inclusive learning communities within geoscience field courses designed to enable the active participation of students with disabilities. The purpose is to reflect on the outcomes of three distinct projects and consider what lessons can be drawn from them to help promote and…

Kirchner, Nina; van Dongen, Eef; Gowan, Evan J.; Pattyn, Frank; Noormets, Riko; Jakobsson, Martin; Ingólfsson, Ólafur – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
GRANTISM (GReenland and ANTarctic Ice Sheet Model) is an educational Excel™ model introduced by Pattyn (2006). Here, GRANTISM is amended to simulate the Svalbard-Barents-Sea Ice Sheet during the Last Glacial Maximum, an analogue for the contemporary West Antarctic Ice Sheet. A new name, "GRANTSISM," is suggested; the added S represents…

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…

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…

Hendricks, Julie E.; Atchison, Christopher L.; Feig, Anthony D. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
In 2014, the Geological Society of America sponsored an Accessible Field Trip, designed to demonstrate best practices in accommodating a wide variety of participants with disabilities during a field experience. During the trip, an aide was deployed to assist two student participants with sensory disabilities, one with low vision and the other with…

Bookhagen, Britta; Koeberl, Christian; Juang, Linda; DeRosa, Donald A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
As part of an outreach initiative by the Natural History Museum in Vienna, Austria, an interdisciplinary educational module was developed to teach students about sustainability through the lens of mineral resources used to produce mobile phones. The overall goal of the module is to provide teachers of different subjects with a multifaceted tool to…

Felzmann, Dirk – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Glaciers and ice ages are important topics in teaching geomorphology, earth history, and climate change. As with many geoscience topics, glacier formation, glacier movement, glacial morphology, and ice ages consist of a wide variety of processes and phenomena. Accordingly, it must be decided which of those processes and phenomena should be part of…

Kelley, Daniel F.; Uzunlar, Nuri; Lisenbee, Alvis; Beate, Bernardo; Turner, Hope E. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
We developed and implemented the Galapagos Volcanology Field Camp, a 3 week, 3 credit hour course for upper-level university students with a major course of study in geology. The course is offered by the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, is open to any student, and is usually populated by students from many universities across the U.S.…

Lant, Christopher; Pérez-Lapeña, Blanca; Xiong, Weidong; Kraft, Steven; Kowalchuk, Rhonda; Blair, Michael – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Guided by the Next Generation Science Standards and elements of problem-based learning, four human-environment systems simulations are described in brief--carbon, energy, water, and watershed--and a fifth simulation on nitrogen is described in more depth. These science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education simulations illustrate…

Spandler, Carl – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Mineralogy is an essential component of Earth Science education, yet many students struggle to obtain adequate comprehension and knowledge of mineralogy during tertiary (postsecondary) degree programs. The use of educational games can be an effective strategy for science teaching as games provide an active learning environment that enhances…

Jacobs, Christian T.; Gorman, Gerard J.; Rees, Huw E.; Craig, Lorraine E. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Computer programming was once thought of as a skill required only by professional software developers. But today, given the ubiquitous nature of computation and data science it is quickly becoming necessary for all scientists and engineers to have at least a basic knowledge of how to program. Teaching how to program, particularly to those students…
