Cooper, Jessica; Jabanoski, Kristen; Kaplan, Marlene – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Undergraduate research is a highly valued and increasingly critical component of STEM undergraduate education, as it is a key strategy in effective student development (National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, 2017; Science Education Alliance, 2017). However, there is little evidence on the long-term education and career impacts…

Macdonald, R. Heather; Beane, Rachel J.; Baer, Eric M. D.; Eddy, Pamela L.; Emerson, Norlene R.; Hodder, Jan; Iverson, Ellen R.; McDaris, John R.; O'Connell, Kristin; Ormand, Carol J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Faculty play an important role in attracting students to the geosciences, helping them to thrive in geoscience programs, and preparing them for careers. Thus, faculty have the responsibility to work toward broadening participation in the geosciences by implementing equitable and inclusive practices in their teaching and their programs. Faculty…

Weissmann, Gary S.; Ibarra, Roberto A.; Howland-Davis, Michael; Lammey, Machienvee V. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Poor gender, ethnic, and racial diversity in the geosciences and most of STEM indicates that current approaches to facilitating inclusion and equity are not complete. The prevailing academic culture in the United States tends to value "low-context" approaches to learning, such as encouraging individuated work, adhering to strict time…

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…

Kastens, Kim A.; Manduca, Cathryn A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Many geoscience education initiatives now involve cross-departmental or multi-institutional programs. However, the geoscientists who lead such programs typically have little experience or training in program design, leadership, or evaluation. In this commentary, we make the case that geoscientists taking on these ambitious leadership roles can…

McNeal, Karen S.; Petcovic, Heather L. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
The calls for a college-educated science and technology workforce, as well as a scientifically literate citizenry, have led to a demand for higher education faculty prepared in discipline-based education research (DBER). These faculty members conduct research on teaching and learning in the context of a specific discipline, including the…

Shipley, Thomas F.; Tikoff, Basil – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
This manuscript addresses the potential role of geoscience education research in understanding geoscience expert practice. We note the similarity between the perception-action framework of Ulric Neisser (Neisser, 1976) and the observation-prediction framework used by geoscience practitioners. The consilience between these two approaches is that…

McDaris, John R.; Manduca, Cathryn A.; Iverson, Ellen R.; Orr, Cailin Huyck – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Despite gains over the last decade, the geoscience student population in the United States today continues to lag other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines in terms of diversity. Minority-serving institutions (MSIs) can play an important role in efforts to broaden underrepresented student engagement with Earth Science…

Carabajal, Ivan G.; Marshall, Anita M.; Atchison, Christopher L. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
People with disabilities make up the largest minority population in the U.S. yet remain sorely underrepresented in scientific disciplines that require components of field-based training such as the geosciences. This paper provides a critical analysis of broadening participation within geoscience education literature through the use of accessible…

Manduca, Cathryn A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) higher education is in need of improved teaching methods to increase learning for all students. Faculty professional development programs are a widespread strategy for fostering this improvement. Studies of faculty development programs have focused on program design and the impact of…

Bush, Drew; Sieber, Renee; Seiler, Gale; Chandler, Mark – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
A gap has existed between the tools and processes of scientists working on anthropogenic global climate change (AGCC) and the technologies and curricula available to educators teaching the subject through student inquiry. Designing realistic scientific inquiry into AGCC poses a challenge because research on it relies on complex computer models,…

Callahan, Caitlin N.; Libarkin, Julie C.; McCallum, Carmen M.; Atchison, Christopher L. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2015
In this commentary, we argue that social capital theory, the idea that membership in a group creates opportunities to acquire valuable information and resources from other group members, is a useful framework in which to consider ways to increase diversity in the Earth System Sciences (ESS) and in the science, technology, engineering, and…

J.; Rhodes, Richard; Woods, Philip; Yellowman, Tom – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
The Manoomin ''wild rice'' Science Camp program, a partnership between the University of Minnesota, the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College, and the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa is an example of how a community-based participatory research project can become the catalyst for STEM learning for an entire community, providing…

Kirkby, Kent C. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
One of my principal goals at the University of Minnesota is to transform the university's entry-level geoscience program into an effective ''concluding'' geoscience course that provides students with a clear understanding of the many interactions between Earth processes and human society. Although place-based learning appeared to be a promising…

Seraphin, Kanesa Duncan – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
The ways in which people view the world, and by extension the ways in which they learn, are shaped by cultural context. As educators striving to build scientific literacy among our students, it is critical to bridge the gaps among disparate cultures, traditional ways of knowing, and Western science. Understanding the value of traditional knowledge…
