Hepworth, Katherine; Ivey, Cesunica E.; Canon, Chelsea; Holmes, Heather A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
An interdisciplinary undergraduate atmospheric science modeling course was cotaught at a midsize public university by three professors from atmospheric science, statistics, and design using a blended learning approach. The in-class portion of the course taught upper-level students numerical weather prediction modeling and statistical evaluation…

Seroy, Sasha K.; Zulmuthi, Hanis; Grünbaum, Daniel – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Educational research supports incorporating active engagement into K-12 education using authentic STEM experiences. While there are discipline-specific resources to provide students with such experiences, there are limited transdisciplinary opportunities that integrate engineering education and technological skill-building to contextualize core…

Vergara-Díaz, Claudia; Bustamante, Karla; Pinto, Luisa; Cofré, Hernán – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
International research has recognized numerous alternative conceptions and obstacles to learning about Earth dynamics. The objective of this research was to evaluate the impact of a teaching intervention that incorporates models and scientific inquiry to promote understanding about Earth dynamics in a group of seventh grade students at a school in…

Arthurs, Leilani A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Despite the need for public understanding about groundwater resources, groundwater is among those topics that instructors most struggle to teach at pre-college and college levels. Although constructivist theories suggest student-held conceptions can be used as teaching tools for active learning, there remains a question about how to draw out and…

d'Alessio, Matthew A.; Schwartz, Joshua J.; Pedone, Vicki; Pavia, Jenni; Fleck, Jenna; Lundquist, Loraine – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Promoting collaboration and discourse in asynchronous online courses is challenging; students need something engaging to talk about, a communications medium in which to fluidly discuss it, and a social environment that supports discourse. We designed a fully online introductory geoscience lecture and lab course called Geology Goes Hollywood that…

Kirchner, Nina; van Dongen, Eef; Gowan, Evan J.; Pattyn, Frank; Noormets, Riko; Jakobsson, Martin; Ingólfsson, Ólafur – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
GRANTISM (GReenland and ANTarctic Ice Sheet Model) is an educational Excel™ model introduced by Pattyn (2006). Here, GRANTISM is amended to simulate the Svalbard-Barents-Sea Ice Sheet during the Last Glacial Maximum, an analogue for the contemporary West Antarctic Ice Sheet. A new name, "GRANTSISM," is suggested; the added S represents…

Egger, Anne E.; Kastens, Kim A.; Turrin, Margaret K. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2017
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) emphasize how human activities affect the Earth and how Earth processes impact humans, placing the concept of sustainability within the Earth and Space Sciences. We ask: how prepared are future teachers to address sustainability and systems thinking as encoded in the NGSS? And how can geoscientists…

Luo, Wei; Pelletier, Jon; Duffin, Kirk; Ormand, Carol; Hung, Wei-chen; Shernoff, David J.; Zhai, Xiaoming; Iverson, Ellen; Whalley, Kyle; Gallaher, Courtney; Furness, Walter – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
The long geological time needed for landform development and evolution poses a challenge for understanding and appreciating the processes involved. The Web-based Interactive Landform Simulation Model--Grand Canyon (WILSIM-GC, is an educational tool designed to help students better understand such processes,…

Todd, Claire; O'Brien, Kevin J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Anthropogenic climate change is a complicated issue involving scientific data and analyses as well as political, economic, and ethical issues. In order to capture this complexity, we developed an interdisciplinary student and faculty collaboration by (1) offering introductory lectures on scientific and ethical methods to two classes, (2) assigning…

Anderson, Steven W.; Libarkin, Julie C. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Nationwide pre- and posttesting of introductory courses with the Geoscience Concept Inventory (GCI) shows little gain for many of its questions. Analysis of more than 3,500 tests shows that 22 of the 73 GCI questions had gains of <0.03, and nearly half of these focused on basic physics and chemistry. We also discovered through an assessment of…

Russell, Jae-eun; Van Horne, Sam; Ward, Adam S.; Bettis, Arthur, III.; Sipola, Maija; Colombo, Mariana; Rocheford, Mary K. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
This study investigated students' attitudes, engagement, satisfaction, and performance in Introduction to Environmental Science after it was transformed from a typical large lecture to a student-centered learning environment. The instructors of the course collaborated with the Office of Teaching, Learning & Technology and radically redesigned…

Dykas, Matthew J.; Valentino, David W. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
This study examined the factors that contribute to students' success in conducting geological field work. Undergraduate students (n = 49; 51% female; mean age = 22 y) who were enrolled in the 5-wk State University of New York at Oswego (SUNY Oswego) geology field program volunteered to participate in this study. At the beginning of the field…

Bodzin, Alec M.; Anastasio, David; Sharif, Rajhida; Rutzmoser, Scott – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Learning with Web-based geographic information system (Web GIS) can promote geospatial thinking and analysis of georeferenced data. Web GIS can enable learners to analyze rich data sets to understand spatial relationships that are managed in georeferenced data visualizations. We developed a Web GIS plate tectonics simulation as a capstone learning…

Blake, Reginald A.; Liou-Mark, Janet; Blackburn, Noel; Chan, Christopher; Yuen-Lau, Laura – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2015
To engender and raise awareness to the geosciences, a geoscience research project and a corresponding geoscience internship program were designed around plume dispersion dynamics within and above the New York City subway system. Federal, regional, and local agencies partnered with undergraduate students from minority-serving institutions to…

Jolley, Alison; Ayala, Gianna – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2015
A new, interdisciplinary high school geoarchaeology curriculum unit, titled "Living with Volcanoes," was created and tested in two pilot lessons with 30 high school students total studying geography and classical civilization in northern England. Students were highly engaged during the curriculum unit and showed positive learning gains…
