Walton, Gabriel – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Technical writing skills are widely considered to be critical for geologists and engineers. Iterative practice with technical writing throughout the undergraduate curriculum represents a common mode by which students develop their skills. The purpose of this study is to examine the efficacy of an iterative practice and feedback model in the…

Van Boening, Angela M.; Riggs, Eric M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Gestures are physical manifestations of cognitive processes. Geology students often use gestures to describe geologic features and processes. The gestures allow students to convey 3- and 4-dimensional information about the rocks. Studying and characterizing these gestures can be useful in understanding students' learning processes; however,…

Bush, Paige; Mattox, Stephen – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Attracting more students to the geosciences is imperative. We have an excellent opportunity to model an inclusive community, with hundreds of thousands of students passing through introductory college courses each year. A previous study documented gender and racial bias in physical geology textbooks. Six texts were reexamined to determine any…

Mead, Chris; Buxner, Sanlyn; Bruce, Geoffrey; Taylor, Wendy; Semken, Steven; Anbar, Ariel D. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Field learning is considered an essential part of geoscience education, yet there are many practical challenges that limit broad and equitable access to field learning. Virtual field experiences can now help to broaden access to field learning. This work details the learning design and technical components of immersive, interactive virtual field…

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,…

Hannula, Kimberly A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Geoscientists use spatial thinking skills in many common tasks, such as adding a third dimension to two-dimensional maps by drawing cross-sections or envisioning rock fabrics from a single hand sample or exposure. Field courses allow students to practice and develop those skills in authentic settings. This study examines the development of spatial…

Schiappa, Tamra A.; Smith, Langdon – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Multidisciplinary field investigations courses offer exciting alternatives to traditional learning. They offer a more holistic view of Earth and an opportunity for students to experience the relationships between all of the different elements instead of just one individual segment. We designed a multidisciplinary field investigations course for…

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…

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…

d'Alessio, Matthew A.; Lundquist, Loraine L.; Schwartz, Joshua J.; Pedone, Vicki; Pavia, Jenni; Fleck, Jenna – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Online courses can feel isolating and sometimes lack human connections that can motivate students. We developed a fully online geoscience course to build a 'Community of Inquiry' with attention to cognitive, social, and teaching presences. We ran the course using nearly identical materials for 8 semesters (recorded video lectures, labs,…

Jones, Jason P.; McConnell, David A.; Wiggen, Jennifer L.; Bedward, John – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Incorporating active learning strategies into introductory STEM courses has been shown to improve student outcomes, however, these activities take class time to execute. The question of how to implement these effective strategies without sacrificing a significant volume of content coverage has led to the development of a "flipped" model…

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…

Sherman-Morris, Kathleen; Del Valle Martinez, Idamis; Justice, Cheryl A.; Hall, Kimberly R. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
A sample of 43 Mississippi school counselors was surveyed regarding resources they use in career counseling, as well as resources they believe are effective in informing students about STEM careers, particularly the geosciences. Participants were asked a number of questions about their knowledge and perceptions about STEM majors and careers. The…

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.…
