Miller, Ryan A.; Howell, Cathy D.; Knight, Shawn – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2022
Increasingly, colleges and universities require at least one diversity course as part of general education programs.

The authors report on…

Harter, Alyssa; Jacobi, Laura – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
The Circular Model of Collegiate Co-Teaching (Morelock et al., 2017) examines power and authority structures, dynamics of co-teaching relationships, and co-teachers' perceptions of co-teaching. The model does not include student perceptions, however, and it has not been applied to veteran-novice instructor pairs. The authors conducted a case study…

Jensen, Birgit A.; Altstaedter, Laura Levi – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
This quantitative and qualitative study explored students' perceptions of a flipped German course and its measurable impact on their critical-thinking skills. The instructional design of the course shifted grammar and vocabulary instruction outside of class so that students in the newly created collaborative in-class space could engage in more…

This article describes a pilot program that employed evidence-based strategies to increase first-generation and low-income (FGLI) student engagement. Over two quarters, the instructors offered three resources allowing students to engage at different levels: panel presentations, themed discussions, and a peer mentor program. Students requested…

Petzold, Andrew M.; Wollschlager, Jennifer – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
Creating summative assessments that accurately test students' breadth of knowledge and critical thinking can be a difficult task. Instructors often rely upon overly complex quick response questions or constructed response exams. However, students often have negative perceptions of the latter. The authors implemented an approach for administering…

Bolter, Nicole D.; Taylor, Sherria D.; Gomez, Dulce H.; Eliason, Michele; Van Olphen, Juliana; Veri, Maria J. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
Undergraduate research methods courses help shape students' perceptions about research. Given the lack of diverse researchers in STEM fields, these perceptions are particularly important for underrepresented minorities. This study tested a social justice pedagogy intervention to determine the effects on various psychosocial constructs. Three…

Wolfe, Christopher R.; Dandignac, Mitchell – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
Students in a course on the psychology of language and thought first wrote flash fiction stories and analyzed them using course concepts. As an experiential learning exercise, they subsequently analyzed those stories for a number of psycholinguistic variables using the discourse technology Coh-Metrix. Their assignment was to change a number of…

Deka, Teddi S. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
Confidence in social science research diminished in the 2010s when several published research results failed to replicate. This "replication crisis" increased awareness that findings need to be substantiated, but academic researchers have little incentive to engage in repeating others' research. College students can advance their…

Tessier, Lisa; Reiff, Dana M. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
In fall 2015, a mixed-method study was conducted with 106 early-semester and 89 late-semester undergraduate respondents to examine their use of rubrics and perceptions of their impact on academic success. A significant shift toward rubric use was found over the course of the semester, with most use occurring before assignments were due. Students…

Ritter, Lake; Scherrer, Christina; Vandenbussche, Jennifer; Whipple, Jessica – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
Office hours are an essential component of the faculty-student relationship. At present, however, few rigorous studies are available to guide faculty toward best practices in their implementation. In this study, the authors analyze survey results (n = 169) from a calculus course that included required office hours attendance. Results are presented…

Agolini, Susan H. B. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
In order to improve the student success rate in a "gateway" undergraduate Biology course, changes were made to both content delivery and classroom support, and the impact of these changes was measured. Requiring students to interact with course material prior to class time by viewing pre-recorded lectures freed up time in class to delve…

Gilbert, Jacqueline A. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
Although many professors realize that note taking while listening to a lecture results in shallow learning and a lack of student engagement (Hartley & Davies, 1978), lecturing remains the primary mode of instruction. A recent challenger to the dominant notetaking/PowerPoint paradigm is Reacting to the Past (RTTP). To capitalize on the…

Andzik, Natalie R.; DeSpain, Stephanie N.; Walker, David A. – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
Professors in a university setting questioned whether requiring students to take in-class notes for points toward their final grade would affect students' quiz scores post-lecture. Students were assigned to one of two conditions: no-notes-required control and required note-taking experimental. A mixed-design analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used…

Mason, Michelle N.; Watson, Rachel Mim; Moon, Kali Nicholas – Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, 2021
The University of Wyoming recently implemented a Learning Assistant (LA) program with the goal of supporting undergraduate students in traditionally lecture-based STEM courses. The authors performed a multi-method qualitative study utilizing a focus group and individual interviews in order to investigate the impact of the program's pilot year on…
