Arthurs, Leilani A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Despite the need for public understanding about groundwater resources, groundwater is among those topics that instructors most struggle to teach at pre-college and college levels. Although constructivist theories suggest student-held conceptions can be used as teaching tools for active learning, there remains a question about how to draw out and…

Lally, Diane; Forbes, Cory T.; McNeal, Karen S.; Soltis, Nicholas A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Scientific modeling and systems thinking (SMST) is central to the geosciences, yet few studies have documented how and to what extent undergraduate geoscience courses emphasize SMST, as well as factors that might help explain or predict these trends. Here, we present research based on data (n = 2056) from the most recent (2016) administration of…

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…

McDonald, Scott; Bateman, Kathryn; Gall, Helen; Tanis-Ozcelik, Arzu; Webb, Aubree; Furman, Tanya – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Plate tectonics is the organizing paradigm of geosciences, but it is also conceptually complex, and students often struggle with developing a system level understanding of the earth. This article reports on research designed to create a characterization of the different levels of sophistication around plate tectonics in the form of a learning…

Teasdale, Rachel; Ryker, Katherine; Bitting, Kelsey – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
In response to calls for reformed teaching practices in college STEM labs and courses, and to support graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) in their general teaching responsibilities, other STEM disciplines have recently increased their focus on GTA training and preparation. However, current practices in GTA training in the geosciences 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…

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…

Pugh, Kevin J.; Phillips, Michael M.; Sexton, Julie M.; Bergstrom, Cassendra M.; Riggs, Eric M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Women are underrepresented in many undergraduate geoscience programs. Some departments are more successful at recruiting and retaining female students than others. To understand why, we investigated potential differences between more and less successful geoscience departments in terms of social support, institutional supports, institutional…

Jackson, Danielle; Kaveh, Haydeh; Victoria, Judith; Walker, Andy; Bursztyn, Natalie – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Studies have consistently documented that introductory geoscience students struggle with visualizing features presented on topographic maps. This is a problem that has the potential to increase in a digital age when engagement with maps consists primarily of GPS navigation via smartphones. Since the first augmented reality (AR) sandbox in 2012,…

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…

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…

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…

Ricci, Jamie L.; Riggs, Eric M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
This qualitative study examines the experience of 12 Native American youth who participated in culturally appropriate geoscience summer programs throughout California. These programs have been shown to change participating youths' perceptions of science. After the programs, the youth are more likely to describe science as something tribes use to…

Quardokus Fisher, Kathleen; Kaufman, Eric; Calagna, Oriana; Myles, LaToya; Brinkworth, Carolyn; Simmons, Denise R.; Dixon, P. Grady – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
To address complex geoscience questions, communities with a variety of experiences and perspectives are needed in local workplaces and institutions across academia and government. To achieve this goal, geoscience needs leaders who are champions of diversity and who have positive attitudes toward others and act upon these attitudes to become change…

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…
