Ryker, Katherine D.; McConnell, David A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
Many agencies, organizations, and researchers have called for the incorporation of inquiry-based learning in college classrooms. Providing inquiry-based activities in laboratory courses is one way to promote reformed, student-centered teaching in introductory geoscience courses. However, the literature on inquiry has relatively few geoscience…

Lukes, Laura A.; McConnell, David A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
There is a need to understand why some students succeed and persist in STEM fields and others do not. While numerous studies have focused on the positive results of using empirically validated teaching methods in introductory science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses, little data has been collected about the student experience in…

Feldman, Maurice; McConnell, David; Aunos, Marjorie – Journal of Mental Health Research in Intellectual Disabilities, 2012
Parents with cognitive impairments (CI) are overrepresented in child custody cases and their children are at risk for adverse outcomes. Ecological-transactional researchers propose that child outcomes are a function of the interaction of multiple distal, intermediate, and proximal risk and resilience factors. This study tested the fit of, and…

McConnell, David – Studies in Higher Education, 2005
The organisation of students into groups (or communities) for learning purposes is an established pedagogic method in higher education. Teachers are now using group methods in networked e-learning contexts, albeit without a full understanding of the dynamics of group work in these settings. This is a new and evolving arena in higher education. In…

McConnell, David A.; van Der Hoeven Kraft, Katrien J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2011
Decades of science education research have provided us with a variety of tools to deal with the cognitive processes behind our students' learning. However, we have placed much less attention on student "affect," the feelings, attitudes, emotions, and values that can encourage or discourage the adoption of effective learning behaviors.…

Gray, Kyle; Steer, David; McConnell, David; Owens, Katharine – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2010
Despite years of formal education, approximately one-third of all undergraduate students still cannot explain the causes of the seasons. Student manipulation of a handheld model is one approach to teaching this concept; however, the large number of students in many introductory classes can dissuade instructors from utilizing this teaching…
