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…

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…

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…

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…

Macdonald, R. Heather; Beane, Rachel J.; Baer, Eric M. D.; Eddy, Pamela L.; Emerson, Norlene R.; Hodder, Jan; Iverson, Ellen R.; McDaris, John R.; O'Connell, Kristin; Ormand, Carol J. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Faculty play an important role in attracting students to the geosciences, helping them to thrive in geoscience programs, and preparing them for careers. Thus, faculty have the responsibility to work toward broadening participation in the geosciences by implementing equitable and inclusive practices in their teaching and their programs. Faculty…

Karsten, Jill L. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
The Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG) program, operational between the years 2001 and 2013, was a signature effort by the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Geosciences (NSF/GEO) to invest in broadening participation of historically underrepresented populations in geoscience education programs and careers.…

Fairfax, Emily; Brown, Megan R. M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
People with disabilities are chronically underrepresented in many geoscience departments across the country. There are a number of proposed reasons why this under-representation persists, one of which is lack of instructor training in designing accessible curriculum and making high-quality accommodations. This not only puts students with…

Lang, Nicholas P.; Persico, Lyman P. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
There has been little discussion regarding the design of geology courses (and programs) to be inclusive of students with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Here, we outline challenges instructors may encounter when teaching geology courses with field components that include students with an ASD and describe solutions we have found to be successful…

Reinen, Linda A.; Kortz, Karen M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Responding to the need for recruitment and retention of a diverse geoscience population, we developed a capstone homework assignment for use in introductory-level geoscience courses. In this article we present "Geologic Issues: Community Impacts and Science Communication," a place- and problem-based assignment designed using research on…

Bililign, Solomon – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2019
Increasing diversity in the geosciences has remained a challenge, despite large investments made by federal agencies in minority-serving institutions (MSIs) and historically black universities and colleges (HBCUs). With increasing challenges associated with climate and environmental change and severe and frequent natural disasters that…
