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…

Beane, Rachel; McNeal, Karen S.; Macdonald, R. Heather – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
What is the extent to which college and university geoscience faculty report using education practices that contribute to more inclusive learning environments and engage a diverse population of students? In the 2016 National Geoscience Faculty Survey, faculty answered questions about their practices in a specific introductory or major course they…

Jin, Lixin; Doser, Diane; Lougheed, Vanessa; Walsh, Elizabeth J.; Hamdan, Lina; Zarei, Maryam; Corral, Guadalupe – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
The Training in Environmental Research and Academic Success (TIERA) program was created to increase recruitment and retention of environmental science majors at the University of Texas at El Paso, where ~80% of students self-declare Hispanic origin, providing a unique opportunity to increase diversity in the future STEM workforce. Through…

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.…

Soule, Dax; Darner, Rebekka; O'Reilly, C. M.; Bader, Nicholas E.; Meixner, Thomas; Gibson, Catherine A.; McDuff, Russell E. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
Environmental Data-Driven Inquiry and Exploration (EDDIE) modules engage students in analysis of data collected by networks of environmental sensors, which are used to study various natural phenomena, such as nutrient loading, climate change, and stream discharge. We compared two approaches to EDDIE module implementation in an undergraduate…

Myer, Rachel A.; Shipley, Thomas F.; Davatzes, Alexandra K. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
The ability to accurately reason using three-dimensional visualizations is vital to success in STEM disciplines, particularly the geosciences. One impediment to learning from visualizations is spatially-based misconceptions. Such errors can arise from a range of sources (e.g., prior beliefs, inaccurate application of analogy, and visual…

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…

Wolfe, Benjamin A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
The geosciences continue to lag behind the other sciences in both diversity and degree completion rates of students transferring from two-year colleges (2YCs). Critical to strengthening the transfer student pipeline is the need to identify who takes introductory geosciences courses at the 2YC level and what factors contribute to increased 2YC…

Ford, Danielle J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
With the release of the Next Generation Science Standards, the Earth and environmental sciences receive greater emphasis at all grade levels. These rigorous standards increase pressure on elementary teachers to possess strong science content and pedagogical content knowledge. They also require teachers to hold a set of beliefs compatible with the…

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…

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…

Arthurs, Leilani – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
The National Research Council's report, "Discipline-Based Education Research: Understanding and Improving Learning in Undergraduate Science and Engineering" (Singer, Nielsen, & Schweingruber, 2012), states that discipline-based education research (DBER), such as geoscience education research (GER), is informed by research about…

Resnick, Ilyse; Kastens, Kim A.; Shipley, Thomas F. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
This study identifies a population of students who have an intermediate amount of relevant content knowledge and skill for working with data, and characterizes their approach to interpreting a challenging data-based visualization. Thirty-three undergraduate students enrolled in an introductory environmental science course reasoned about salinity…

Sexton, Julie M.; Pugh, Kevin J.; Bergstrom, Cassendra M.; Riggs, Eric M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
Only 40% of geoscience undergraduate degrees are conferred on women. Little research has examined why more men tend to pursue and persist in geology degrees compared to women. We examined the reasons why undergraduate geology students chose to major in geology, with a particular emphasis on women. We collected data from 391 undergraduate students…
