Petcovic, Heather L.; McNeal, Peggy M.; Nyarko, Samuel Cornelius; Doorlag, Megan H. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
As much as we think of a geologic map as objective, it is filtered through the experiences of individual geologists and the larger geology community. Thus it is important to understand how geologists become proficient at geologic mapping. As part of a naturalistic study of mapping strategies, 67 geologists ranging from undergraduates to…

Baker, Kathleen M.; Petcovic, L. Heather – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2016
Intelligent behavior in everyday contexts may depend on both ability and an individual's disposition toward using that ability. Research into patterns of thinking has identified three logically distinct components necessary for dispositional behavior: ability, inclination, and sensitivity. Surprisingly, sensitivity appears to be the most common…

Johnson, Adam N.; Sievert, Regina; Durglo, Michael, Sr.; Finley, Vernon; Adams, Louis; Hofmann, Michael H. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
We investigated connections between the natural and the cultural history of the Flathead Indian Reservation through the integration of geoscience, traditional tribal knowledge, and oral narratives for the purpose of improving Earth Science education in the tribal community. The project served as an avenue for the incorporation of indigenous…

Cohn, Teresa Cavazos; Swanson, Elisabeth; Him, Gail Whiteman Runs; Hugs, Dora; Stevens, Lisa; Flamm, Devon – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2014
Solutions to many environmental challenges now require geoscience expertise, knowledge of global interconnectedness, and an understanding of local cultural nuances, a combination for which geoscientists and our students may not be prepared. The Crow Indian Reservation and its borderlands are a microcosm of these challenges, where geoscience…

Maltese, Adam V.; Balliet, Russell N.; Riggs, Eric M. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2013
The focus of this research was to investigate how students learn to do fieldwork through observation. This study addressed the following questions: (1) Can mobile eye-tracking devices provide a robust source of data to investigate the observations and workflow of novice students while participating in a field exercise? If so, what are the…
