Medina Luna, Lorena; Bartel, Beth; Hubenthal, Michael; Haacker, Rebecca – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Education and outreach bring science to the general public, engage families, and ignite a passion for science in youth to seek careers in STEM. However, engagement in science depends on access, and language can be a major barrier. To ensure a welcoming, inclusive, and diverse community in the geosciences, we are calling for a community of practice…

McDaris, John R.; Iverson, Ellen R.; Manduca, Cathryn A.; Huyck Orr, Cailin – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
In the decade since the 2007 "JGE" special issue on broadening participation, much work has been done to draw new voices into the geosciences, and the number of students from underrepresented groups graduating with geoscience degrees has grown. However, the rate of increase is not yet large enough that geoscience demographics represent…

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.…

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…

Bililign, Solomon – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Increasing diversity in the geosciences has remained a challenge, despite large investments made by federal agencies in minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and historically black universities and colleges (HBCUs). With increasing challenges associated with climate and environmental change and severe and frequent natural disasters that…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Gates, Alexander E. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
A simulated physical model of volcanic processes using a glass art studio greatly enhanced enthusiasm and learning among urban, middle- to high-school aged, largely underrepresented minority students in Newark, New Jersey. The collaboration of a geoscience department with a glass art studio to create a science, technology, engineering, arts, and…

White, Timothy; Wymore, Adam; Dere, Ashlee; Hoffman, Adam; Washburne, James; Conklin, Martha – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Earth's critical zone (CZ) is the uppermost layer of Earth's continents, which supports ecosystems and humans alike. CZ science aims to understand how interactions among rock, soil, water, air, and terrestrial organisms influence Earth as a habitable system. Thus, CZ science provides the framework for a holistic-systems approach to teaching Earth…

Pallant, Amy; Lee, Hee-Sun – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
During the past several decades, there has been a growing awareness of the ways humans affect Earth systems. As global problems emerge, educating the next generation of citizens to be able to make informed choices related to future outcomes is increasingly important. The challenge for educators is figuring out how to prepare students to think…

Metzger, Ellen P.; Curren, Randall R. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Because challenges to sustainability arise at the intersection of human and biophysical systems they are inescapably embedded in social contexts and involve multiple stakeholders with diverse and often conflicting needs and value systems. Addressing complex and solution-resistant problems such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and…

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…

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.…
