Dunkle, Kallina M.; Yantz, Jennifer L. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
Flipped instruction is not new and the literature is extensive with examples of flipped courses. However, there is a lack of studies with a structured, methodical approach to flipped design, implementation, and evaluation of its effectiveness. An upper division geology course was flipped to allow focus on higher-level concepts, especially…

Lukes, Laura A.; Jones, Jason P.; McConnell, David A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
Self-regulated learning (SRL) models provide a framework for understanding the observed variance of student performance in geoscience learning contexts. Instructors can potentially use a SRL framework to support students in self-identifying the specific approaches to learning they use when engaging in geoscience learning situations (coursework,…

Arrhenius, Mattias; Lundholm, Cecilia; Bladh, Gabriel – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
This study investigates students' conceptions of the causes and processes that form eskers and erratics, types of glacial and glaciofluvial landforms which to date have been little researched in geoscience education. The data collected for the study included 134 responses to an assignment completed by 12- to 13-year-old students in the Swedish…

Semmens, Kathryn; Fosbenner, Lauren; Maxfield, Keri; Carr, Rachel Hogan; Ramage, Joan; O'Leary, Jim; Larouche, Christine; Hayward, Jeff; Henderson, Maurice – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
The next generation of STEM professionals needs to understand interconnections between human and Earth systems to be able to address complex, multifaceted, emerging global environmental issues. Interest in STEM fields and professions can begin in middle school. To educate and connect middle school students to Earth systems and STEM fields, we…

St. John, Kristen; McNeal, Karen S.; MacDonald, R. Heather; Kastens, Kim A.; Bitting, Kelsey S.; Cervato, Cinzia; McDaris, John R.; Petcovic, Heather L.; Pyle, Eric J.; Riggs, Eric M.; Ryker, Katherine; Semken, Steven; Teasdale, Rachel – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
The geoscience education research (GER) community has produced a collaborative research framework that summarizes guiding questions for future research to inform and improve undergraduate geoscience teaching and learning. The GER Framework (St. John [Ed.], 2018a) was developed through an iterative process involving multiple stages of community…

Pfeifer, Lily S.; Soreghan, Michael J.; Feille, Kelly K.; Soreghan, Gerilyn S.; Weissmann, Gary S.; Ibarra, Robert A.; Stroud, Wesley A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
This paper presents results from our multi-year NSF-IRES program: a four-week, field-based summer program involving the participation and mentorship of U.S. undergraduate geoscience cohorts to develop knowledge and skills in sedimentary geology while immersed in an international research collaboration. Student participants in our program are…

Viskupic, Karen; Egger, Anne E.; McFadden, Rory R.; Schmitz, Mark D. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
A goal of undergraduate geoscience programs is to prepare students for the geoscience workforce. In order to understand the extent to which programs succeed at this goal, we identified desired workforce skills, compiled undergraduate geoscience program requirements, and mapped workforce skills onto faculty responses to the 2016 National Geoscience…

Pfirman, Stephanie; Hamilton, Lawrence; Turrin, Margie; Narveson, Craig; Lloyd, Carrie A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
This first analysis of aggregated data from the Kahoot! game-based player response system demonstrates that it can provide assessments of overall US student polar knowledge and identifies differences in polar knowledge across several states. A kahoot online quiz on polar topics recorded over 25,000 United States teacher-hosted classroom players…

Banchero, Paola; Rector, Travis A.; VanBallenberghe, Jonathan – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
The public's understanding of climate change has been plagued by poor communication, misinformation, and disinformation. Fortunately, there is a growing body of research on effective climate change communication strategies. A popular element of science communication is documentary film. Educational films produced for museums, planetariums, and…

Hamilton, Lawrence C. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
Outreach and communication with the public have substantial value in polar research, in which studies often find changes of global importance that are happening far out of sight from the majority of people living at lower latitudes. Seeking evidence on the effectiveness of outreach programs, the U.S. National Science Foundation sponsored…

Demant-Poort, Lars; Berger, Paul – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
We describe findings from an exploratory study on Greenlandic and Canadian preservice teachers' (PSTs') views on climate change teaching and teacher education programs. Greenland and Canada are experiencing more rapid warming than the global average. Climate resilience is thus of great importance and climate change needs to be taught to foster…

Pfirman, S.; O'Garra, T.; Bachrach Simon, E.; Brunacini, J.; Reckien, D.; Lee, J. J.; Lukasiewicz, E. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
As the impacts of climate change grow, we need better ways to raise awareness and motivate action. Here we assess the effectiveness of an Arctic climate change card game in comparison with the more conventional approach of reading an illustrated article. In-person assessments with control/reading and treatment/game groups (N = 41), were followed…

Polar research plays a vital role in developing our understanding of Earth's climate system. It is intrinsically interdisciplinary, lending itself to integration into existing undergraduate courses. Here we explore introducing undergraduates to polar research through computational guided inquiry (CGI) modules taught in a variety of courses and…

Senger, Kim; Nordmo, Ivar – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
The emergence of digital tools, including tablets with a multitude of built-in sensors, allows gathering many geological observations digitally and in a geo-referenced context. This is particularly important in the polar environments where (1) limited time is available at each outcrop due to harsh weather conditions, and (2) outcrops are rarely…

Schloesser, Katya A.; Gold, Anne U. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
Results from a national needs assessment survey advertised through science teacher networks with the title "Polar Education--Teacher Input Needed" showed that the majority (90%) of teachers that responded are teaching about polar topics or polar regions. We received 508 responses from elementary to post-secondary teachers across the…
