Walton, Gabriel – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Technical writing skills are widely considered to be critical for geologists and engineers. Iterative practice with technical writing throughout the undergraduate curriculum represents a common mode by which students develop their skills. The purpose of this study is to examine the efficacy of an iterative practice and feedback model in the…

Van Boening, Angela M.; Riggs, Eric M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Gestures are physical manifestations of cognitive processes. Geology students often use gestures to describe geologic features and processes. The gestures allow students to convey 3- and 4-dimensional information about the rocks. Studying and characterizing these gestures can be useful in understanding students' learning processes; however,…

Huguet, Carme; Pearse, Jillian; Noè, Leslie F.; Valencia, Diego M.; Ruiz, Nataly Castillo; Heredia, Alexa Jimenez; Avedaño, Mónica Andrea Patiño – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
A collaboration between geoscience professors and pedagogic and technical support experts at Universidad de los Andes led to a teaching innovation, as part of a project entitled GEOC-SENSE. GEOC-SENSE was based on the use of active pedagogy techniques aided by information and communication technologies (ICT) to improve motivation and acquisition…

Pallant, Amy; Lee, Hee-Sun; Pryputniewicz, Sarah – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Incorporating scientific uncertainty as part of science teaching means acknowledging that there may be incomplete or potentially limited scientific information when scientists draw conclusions. In the geosciences, scientists routinely make inferences about the Earth based on observations of the present, and test those observations against…

Littrell, Megan K.; Okochi, Christine; Gold, Anne U.; Leckey, Erin; Tayne, Kelsey; Lynds, Susan; Williams, Valerie; Wise, Sarah – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
The Lens on Climate Change (LOCC) is an informal, place-based science program designed to engage middle and high school students from underserved groups in learning and communicating about impacts of climate change on their communities. This student-driven experience involves identifying a local environmental challenge, researching the topic, and…

Trott, Carlie D.; Sample McMeeking, Laura B.; Bowker, Cheryl L.; Boyd, Kathryn J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Undergraduate research experiences (UREs) have been shown to facilitate students' pursuit of graduate studies and careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields, including geoscience. Less is known about why or how UREs have a lasting impact on participants, particularly through graduate school and into careers.…

Bush, Paige; Mattox, Stephen – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Attracting more students to the geosciences is imperative. We have an excellent opportunity to model an inclusive community, with hundreds of thousands of students passing through introductory college courses each year. A previous study documented gender and racial bias in physical geology textbooks. Six texts were reexamined to determine any…

Davenport, Casey E.; French, Adam J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
The Fundamentals in Meteorology Inventory (FMI) concept inventory exam was recently developed to gauge understanding of fundamental meteorological concepts among introductory meteorology students. The exam was iteratively tested and refined over several years using a small sample of students. With a goal of evaluating the reliability and validity…

Kortz, Karen M.; Cardace, Dawn; Savage, Brian – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Although field and research experiences have been shown to help retain students in the geosciences, there is less known about how and why this is the case. We created a field-based research experience for five students with a range of backgrounds and prior experiences. We used mixed methods case study research to identify affect-related…

Núñez, Anne-Marie; Rivera, Jessica; Hallmark, Tyler – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Geosciences remains one of the least diverse science disciplines. Recent efforts in the discipline have aimed to address leadership, organizational, and structural factors to increase engagement of diverse participants. As these efforts expand, it is important to recognize the interrelated roles of distinctive social identities in affecting…

Riihimaki, Catherine A.; Viskupic, Karen – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
The call to improve undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education can be answered by undergraduate faculty modifying their course content and teaching methods to generate better student outcomes. The National Geoscience Faculty Survey--administered in 2004, 2009, 2012, and 2016--provides evidence that the vast…

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…

Medina Luna, Lorena; Bartel, Beth; Hubenthal, Michael; Haacker, Rebecca – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Education and outreach bring science to the general public, engage families, and ignite a passion for science in youth to seek careers in STEM. However, engagement in science depends on access, and language can be a major barrier. To ensure a welcoming, inclusive, and diverse community in the geosciences, we are calling for a community of practice…

Atchison, Christopher L.; Marshall, Anita M.; Collins, Trevor D. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
This article presents a multiple case study exploring the emergence of inclusive learning communities within geoscience field courses designed to enable the active participation of students with disabilities. The purpose is to reflect on the outcomes of three distinct projects and consider what lessons can be drawn from them to help promote and…

McDaris, John R.; Iverson, Ellen R.; Manduca, Cathryn A.; Huyck Orr, Cailin – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
In the decade since the 2007 "JGE" special issue on broadening participation, much work has been done to draw new voices into the geosciences, and the number of students from underrepresented groups graduating with geoscience degrees has grown. However, the rate of increase is not yet large enough that geoscience demographics represent…
