De Piero, Zack K. – Higher Education Research and Development, 2019
In surveys and semi-structured interviews, Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) discussed the role of reading in their first-year composition (FYC) courses infused with 'writing about writing' and 'teaching for transfer' perspectives. Three transformative reading lenses played a pivotal role in instructors' pedagogies -- deconstructing genres,…

Lane, Amanda Kelly; Hardison, Carlton; Simon, Ariana; Andrews, Tessa C. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2019
One barrier to the adoption of evidenced-based teaching practices may be that faculty do not see teaching as an important part of their identities as professionals. Graduate school is a key time for professional identity development, and currently we know little about how doctoral students develop identities as college teachers. In this…

Shortlidge, Erin E.; Rain-Griffith, Liz; Shelby, Chloe; Shusterman, Gwendolyn P.; Barbera, Jack – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
Embedding active learning is a common mechanism for meeting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education reform goals. Researchers have identified student benefits from such strategies, yet these benefits may not be universal for all students. We sought to identify how students at a nontraditional university perceive…
