Callahan, Caitlin N.; LaDue, Nicole D.; Baber, Lorenzo D.; Sexton, Julie; Kraft, Katrien J. van der Hoeven; Zamani-Gallaher, Eboni M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
For decades, programs targeting the recruitment and retention of underrepresented minorities (URM) have had local success in broadening participation in the geosciences. Meanwhile, national graduation rates of URM geoscience majors fall below the national graduation rates of URM STEM majors, generally. In this literature review, we summarize…

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…

Bitting, Kelsey S.; Teasdale, Rachel; Ryker, Katherine – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Graduate teaching assistants (GTAs) are responsible for direct instruction of geoscience undergraduate students at an array of universities and have a major effect on the knowledge, beliefs, and practices of their students. GTAs benefit from in-department training in both beliefs and practices that align with the existing literature on teaching…

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…

Cheek, Kim A.; LaDue, Nicole D.; Shipley, Thomas F. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Geoscientists analyze and integrate spatial and temporal information at a range of scales to understand Earth processes. Despite this, the concept of scale is ill defined and taught unevenly across the K-16 continuum. This literature review focuses on two meanings of scale: one as the magnitude of the extent of a dimension and the other as a…

Ormand, Carol J.; Shipley, Thomas F.; Tikoff, Basil; Dutrow, Barbara; Goodwin, Laurel B.; Hickson, Thomas; Atit, Kinnari; Gagnier, Kristin; Resnick, Ilyse – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Spatial visualization is an essential prerequisite for understanding geological features at all scales, such as the atomic structures of minerals, the geometry of a complex fault system, or the architecture of sedimentary deposits. Undergraduate geoscience majors bring a range of spatial skill levels to upper-level courses. Fortunately, spatial…

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…

St. John, Kristen; McNeal, Karen S. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
During the past two decades, the Geoscience Education Research (GER) community has been increasingly recognized as an evidence-based research subdiscipline in the geoscience and in the larger discipline-based education research (DBER) field. Most recently, the GER community has begun to address the current state of the field and discuss the best…

Jaeger, Allison J.; Shipley, Thomas F.; Reynolds, Stephen J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Working memory is a cognitive system that allows for the simultaneous storage and processing of active information. While working memory has been implicated as an important element for success in many science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, its specific role in geoscience learning is not fully understood. The major goal of…

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…

van der Hoeven Kraft, Katrien J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Interest is a complex interplay between affective and cognitive components that drive motivation. Over decades of work in the educational psychology community, a theoretical framework has emerged that explains this complex interplay. Interest is initially externally triggered (triggered situational interest), which, through support, can become…

Kastens, Kim; Krumhansl, Ruth – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
The geoscience education research (GER) enterprise faces a challenge in moving instructional resources and ideas from the well-populated domain of "practitioners' wisdom" into the research-tested domains of St. John and McNeal's pyramid of evidence (this volume). We suggest that the process could be accelerated by seeking out clusters of…

Scherer, Hannah H.; Holder, Lauren; Herbert, Bruce – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Engaging students in authentic problem solving concerning environmental issues in near-surface complex Earth systems involves both developing student conceptualization of Earth as a system and applying that scientific knowledge using techniques that model those used by professionals. In this first paper of a two-part series, we review the state of…

Liu, Juhong Christie; St. John, Kristen; Courtier, Anna M. Bishop – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Identifying instruments and surveys to address geoscience education research (GER) questions is among the high-ranked needs in a 2016 survey of the GER community (St. John et al., 2016). The purpose of this study was to develop and validate a student-centered assessment instrument to measure course experience in a general education integrated…

Kortz, Karen M.; van der Hoeven Kraft, Katrien J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Undergraduate research has been shown to be an effective practice for learning science. While this is a popular discussion topic, there are few full examples in the literature for introductory-level students. This paper describes the Geoscience Education Research Project, an innovative course-based research experience designed for…
