Using Student Learning and Development Outcomes to Evaluate a First-Year Undergraduate Group Video Project
Jensen, Murray; Mattheis, Allison; Johnson, Brady
CBE - Life Sciences Education, v11 n1 p68-80 Mar 2012
Students in an interdisciplinary undergraduate introductory course were required to complete a group video project focused on nutrition and healthy eating. A mixed-methods approach to data collection involved observing and rating video footage of group work sessions and individual and focus group interviews. These data were analyzed and used to evaluate the effectiveness of the assignment in light of two student learning outcomes and two student development outcomes at the University of Minnesota. Positive results support the continued inclusion of the project within the course, and recommendthe assignment to other programs as a viable means of promoting both content learning and affective behavioral objectives. (Contains 9 tables, 3 footnotes, and 1 figure.)
