Raymond, Chad; Tawa, John; Tonini, GinaMarie; Gomaa, Sally – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
Cross-cultural competence is now regarded as a critical student learning outcome by many U.S. higher educational institutions. It requires in part that students be able to empathize with people whose ethno-cultural, economic, political, and/or geographic backgrounds are different from their own--a quality that we are labeling global empathy. Yet…

Oldmixon, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
Undergraduates frequently approach research methods classes with trepidation and skepticism, owing in part to math-phobia and confusion over how methodology is relevant to their interests. These self-defeating barriers to learning undermine the efficacy of methods classes. This essay discusses a strategy for overcoming these barriers--use of a…

Marineau, Josiah F. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
Many new political science faculty at teaching universities are recent PhD recipients, and are coming to these institutions from research-oriented universities. There are considerable differences between the training for graduate students received at research universities and the expectations for faculty at teaching universities. This essay…

Grussendorf, Jeannie; Rogol, Natalie C. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
In a pre/post quasi-experimental study assessing the impact of a specific curriculum on critical thinking, the authors employed a critical thinking curriculum in two sections of a U.S. foreign policy class. The authors found that the interactive and scaffolded critical thinking curriculum yielded statistically significant critical thinking…

Mendez, Jeanette Morehouse; Mendez, Jesse Perez – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
Utilizing Critical Race Theory (CRT) as a conceptual framework, this study examines student perception of faculty of color in academia from student professor preference. Using an experimental design to test the effect of race on selection of faculty with whom to take a course, we showed student participants two types of pairings of faculty: first,…

Shaw, Carolyn M.; Switky, Bob – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
The value of simulations in the classroom is well established, and there are numerous publications that feature specific role-play exercises that can readily be introduced into the classroom. Frequently, however, instructors would like to design their own simulations to fit their specific learning objectives for a class, but don't know where to…

Mitchell, Kristina M. W.; Manzo, Whitney Ross – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
Much of existing assessment and instructional design strategies revolve around the use of learning objectives. Learning objectives are used by faculty, by instructional designers, by accreditors, by assessment offices, and by students. But even as the use of learning objectives becomes more widespread, the definition and purpose have remained…

Henshaw, Alexis Leanna; Meinke, Scott R. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
While data analysis and the related skills of data management and data visualization are important skills for undergraduates in the field of political science, the process of learning these skills can also be used to develop critical thinking, encourage active and collaborative learning, and to apply knowledge gained in the classroom. Drawing on…

Hosman, Laura; Jacobs, Ginger – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
Educational approaches that enable students to actively and directly participate in "real-world" projects are increasingly recognized as valuable pedagogical tools and, as such, being incorporated into university curriculums worldwide. Though not traditionally associated with political science courses, project-based international service…

Brandle, Shawna M. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
Traditional American Government textbooks are expensive and often unpopular with students. New technologies and Open Educational Resources (OERs) open up the potential for change, but questions of quality are ever present: can OERs really help students learn better, or are they just cheaper? I developed an OER based on original sources and…

Josephson, Jyl – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
This article builds on the political science literature on the pedagogy of civic engagement by discussing a recent pedagogical experiment that treats community partners as leaders and full participants in the design and implementation of community-engaged learning. The courses discussed here combine democratic theory, community organizing and…

Lawrence, Christopher N.; Lester, Julie A. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
In this article, we present findings from a grant-funded initiative to replace traditional, proprietary textbooks with an open content textbook under a Creative Commons license in the introductory American government course (POLS 1101) at Middle Georgia State University. We find that the use of an open content textbook led to somewhat negative…

Mouritzen, Poul Erik – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
During four intensive summer weeks, 28 students were exposed to the daily life of top political leaders (ministers and city mayors), acting as their political advisors. Real-life assignments were planned in cooperation with liaisons from the personal offices of these political leaders. The cases brought the hectic, complicated and uncertain life…

Brown, Joseph M. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
Instructors may be reluctant to adopt simulations because of time, labor, or material constraints, or perceived incompatibility with large classes. In fact, simple games can cover multiple key concepts with minimal time and effort by the instructor. Simple games are also adaptable to other topics and classes, including large lectures. This article…

Bernstein, Jeffrey L.; Deljevic, Austin N.; Kindred, Emily K.; Krochmalny, Elizabeth M.; Somerville, Annie – Journal of Political Science Education, 2018
The ability to integrate learning--to make connections across classes or even within a single class--is integral to students becoming better learners, and to growing their capacity to perform as civic actors. We discuss an upper-level Campaigns and Elections class in which the course structure and assignments were set up to encourage students to…
