Ready Or Not, Here It Comes!: Distance Learning And Online Teaching, Laura Russ, Dave Hung, Kim Davies, Maureen Akins, Gina Hammock

SoTL Commons Conference

With increasing interest and pressure on university faculty to augment course offerings to meet student learning needs with online sections, a faculty learning community at Georgia Regents University set out to examine faculty concerns and readiness for teaching online. In this poster, we present data gathered from a survey of a broad range of faculty at our university including adjunct faculty, lecturers, and untenured and tenured faculty. We examine the relationship between faculty experiences, concerns, attitudes and self-perceived preparedness and willingness to teach online. Results indicate teachers are concerned with how online instruction affects student interaction with faculty and other ...

Flipped Classroom Or Flipped Out?: Professors Attitudes Towards Online Learning, Beth Stutzmann, Donna Colebech, Adeel Khalid, Craig Chin, John Sweigart

SoTL Commons Conference

Professors need to accommodate administration mandates for designing online courses but what are professor attitudes towards online learning and which courses are better adapted to online instruction? Southern Polytechnic State University's Research Learning Community presents conducted research on this platform: A comparison of face-to-face; blended; and fully online models will be examined; as well as professor attitudes towards online learning and which polytechnic courses professors deem truly appropriate for the online environment. Flipped classroom techniques and learning activities used to enhance courses will also be addressed to investigate whether certain flipped classroom techniques are specific to a particular subject ...


How Does Eliciting Student Feedback Impact The Quality Of Instruction And Student Learning Outcomes For Non-Majors In Required Courses?, Patricia Rieman Mar 2013

How Does Eliciting Student Feedback Impact The Quality Of Instruction And Student Learning Outcomes For Non-Majors In Required Courses?, Patricia Rieman

SoTL Commons Conference

This project was inspired by Schmidt, Becker, Wissmiller, Nyland, and Surdick (ISSoTL 2011), who investigated how improved communication of expectations impacted student motivation, metacognition, and learning environment. Secondary education minors (content area majors) who must take a language arts methods course often struggle to understand just why it is required for them. Rieman hopes to determine whether, with an opportunity to state opinions and questions in an anonymous, safe online environment in which she can address questions and concerns, students will develop a better understanding, and thus, acceptance, of the course requirement. Another question is whether such student acceptance will ...


A Socratic Café For Critical Inquiry, Jody Piro, Gina Anderson Mar 2013

A Socratic Café For Critical Inquiry, Jody Piro, Gina Anderson

SoTL Commons Conference

This presentation will explore the completed research inquiry that developed from our overt attempt to promote critical thinking in an online forum. The implications for advancing critical inquiry in online formats for interdisciplinary university content areas will be addressed. The objectives of this session are twofold: 1) to introduce participants to the nine intellectual standards (Elder & Paul, 2007) used to analyze the critical thinking and Socratic questioning in our research, and 2) to discuss the structuring of critical analysis in participants' own classrooms. Participants can expect to participate in a cooperative learning activity to practice the use of Intellectual Standards ...
