Peacock, Jessica L.; FitzPatrick, Kathleen; Finn, Kevin E. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2020
The authors determined whether positive perceptions of integrating lecture and lab in Anatomy and Physiology courses persisted from 2015-2018. Students (843) and instructors (56) completed the Student Assessment of Their Learning Gains survey; perceptions were positive and consistent between both groups. Participant narratives identified the…

Hunter, Karla M.; Westwick, Joshua N.; Chromey, Kelli J. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2020
Despite criticism suggesting that online courses could pose significant challenges for dually enrolled students, online dual-enrollment continues to increase, especially in rural areas and within general education curricula. These academic and student development concerns call into question the merits of offering college courses online to high…

Brobeck, David; Taylor, Carl – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2020
One of the most important processes in which professors can engage is to explore different techniques to improve the learning environment. Zull (2002, 2011) has stated that people adopt new learning by "idea testing." Was the test beneficial? The authors, who were interested in testing ideas to improve the teaching and learning process,…

Yoho, Rachel; Kohn, Kathryn Paris; Urban-Lurain, Mark; Merrill, John; Haudek, Kevin Charles – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2020
Crosscutting concepts, such as "structure" and "function," are present in courses at multiple educational levels across the disciplines. These two terms are used individually in everyday language and have a long, rich history. The authors explore the meaning and presentation of biological function, which often is not clearly…

Claussen, Stephanie A.; Radhakrishnan, Dhinesh; Haney, Casey L.; Kimani, Sally N.; Wairimu, Esther; Kimutai, Wesley; DeBoer, Jennifer – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
Engineering has a history rife with community-based projects in which the engineers prioritize their own interests and outcomes over those of the community with which they work, at great detriment to the community. Short-term engineering study abroad trips, especially those which take place in low- or middle-income countries and have a clear…

Pai, Grace; Wilson, Katie – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
The literature on assessing education abroad is dominated by studies using pre-/post-survey instruments to measure student growth across broad dimensions like global perspectives or intercultural competencies. Most studies also focus on study abroad programs in private, four-year or graduate schools. There is limited research assessing programs in…

Jones, Daniel C.; Campbell, Michelle M.; Acheson, Kris – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
Evidence suggests that facilitated interventions in study abroad enhance gains in intercultural development, but many recent studies are not generalizable due to small numbers and lack of experimental design. In this study, subjects received individual or small-group interventions online in a course with trained intercultural mentors. The authors…

Wright, Mary C.; Wiley, Sandra; Van Gent, Elona; Huerta, Monica – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
Although the number of international experience requirements (IER) for college students is growing, there is limited research on their impact. The authors present a four-year study of the impact on an IER at the University of Michigan's Penny W. Stamps School of Art and Design, comparing outcomes for required and non-required cohorts. Evaluation…

Butler, Paige E. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2019
The author argues that models of culture shock present a crisis response to cultural encounters and neglect key theories of student development. Drawing from interdisciplinary research, she presents a new model, the Cultural Transitions Model (CTM), to better support students as they encounter cultural transitions during study abroad. The CTM…
