Woods, Natasha N.; Leggett, Zakiya H.; Miriti, Maria N. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2023
Ecology and environmental (EE) biology has low representation of Black Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC). Degree completion and career placement in EE often fail due to poor consideration of the intersections among student lived experiences and the academic support, peer community support, mentoring, and leadership development that they…

Schizas, Dimitrios; Papatheodorou, Efimia; Vezagkou, Traiani; Stamou, George – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Science and environmental educators implicitly presuppose that the ecosystem per se is clearly defined and consider learners' misunderstandings to be incorrect scientific interpretations of uncontested knowledge content. The present study, however, explores how in-service secondary education Greek biology teachers address the topic of 'ecosystem…

Bopardikar, Anushree; Bernstein, Debra; McKenney, Susan – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2023
Student-Teacher-Scientist Partnerships (STSPs) provide opportunities for students and teachers to participate in citizen science and engage with scientific concepts and practices, thereby bridging school learning with issues of importance to society, such as climate change. But STSPs require partners to cross boundaries between the cultures of…

Malone, Karen; Logan, Marianne; Siegel, Lisa; Regalado, Julie; Wade-Leeuwen, Bronwen – Australian Journal of Environmental Education, 2020
Drawing on a posthuman lens we walk -- with Deborah Bird Rose and her conceptual framing of "shimmer." We explore shimmering as incorporating a sensorial richness, as beauty and grandeur, as constantly in flux, moving between past, future and back again. Shimmering has potentiality in a posthuman context in its encompassing of spiritual…

Lanouette, Kathryn – Science Education, 2022
In science education, there has been a sustained focus on supporting the emergence of science practices in K-12 and field-based settings. Recent work has elevated the integral role of emotion in sparking and sustaining such disciplinary practices, deepening the field's understanding of what is entailed in "doing" science. Yet even as we…

Campbell, Ashley; Hughes, Crystal – English in Texas, 2020
Shifts in generations from Millennials to Generation Z have brought changes to today's classroom. In turn, these changes indicate the need for reform and innovation in education. If the goal for education remains to put contributing members into society, then educators must search for the most effective ways to prepare students to enter society…

Hecht, Marijke; Crowley, Kevin – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
An ecological framework is often used to describe the context for learning in educational research and practice. However, there is often a focus on descriptive aspects that frame the ecosystem as a complicated set of interconnected elements--but not a true complex problem. Acknowledging connections between ecosystem elements is not enough to…

MacPherson, Anna C. – Science Education, 2016
This study sought to investigate the arguments that ecologists engage in as part of their work and to compare their arguments with the way in which ecological arguments have been presented in school argumentation tasks. Ten ecologists, in subfields ranging from individual/behavioral ecology to global ecology, participated in semistructured…

Buo, Carrie; Eagle-Malone, Rebecca – Online Submission, 2021
Children in urban environments tend to have limited exposure to environmental education programs for many reasons. This paper describes the development of a short-session after-school program, created to introduce children in an inner-city school to the concept of urban ecology. In this program, we met with a class of 20 fifth graders once a week…

ArchMiller, Althea; Fieberg, John; Walker, J.D.; Holm, Noah – Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, 2017
Peer assessment is often used for formative learning, but few studies have examined the validity of group-based peer assessment for the summative evaluation of course assignments. The present study contributes to the literature by using online technology (the course management system Moodle™) to implement structured, summative peer review based on…

Bishop, Bradley Wade; Borden, Rose M. – portal: Libraries and the Academy, 2020
This study investigates scientists' data needs to provide a basis for professionals in research data management (RDM) to tailor services to meet those needs. Eighty-one participants completed a survey after they had asked a question at a Data Help Desk staffed by data management professionals at one of two science conferences. The qualitative…

Lortie, Christopher J.; Stewart, Gavin; Rothstein, Hannah; Lau, Joseph – Research Synthesis Methods, 2015
Meta-analysis offers ecologists a powerful tool for knowledge synthesis. Albeit a form of review, it also shares many similarities with primary empirical research. Consequently, critical reading of meta-analyses incorporates criteria from both sets of approaches particularly because ecology is a discipline that embraces heterogeneity and broad…
