Enhance, Engage, Evolve: Challenges, Rewards, And The Culture Of Evidence In Online Learning, Patrick Smith, Scott Dunn, David Pollock, Michael Stewart, Colette Galivan

SoTL Commons Conference

A five-member panel from Bainbridge College (GA) will discuss the challenges and potential rewards involved in implementing the institution's Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), which was developed in preparation for a recent SACS accreditation visit. The QEP is a comprehensive approach to enhancing online learning at Bainbridge College. Careful assessment of the QEP's proposed outcomes will be crucial as the college immerses itself in a culture of evidence and moves toward the ideal of a learning-centered institution. Consistent application of both direct and indirect measures of learning outcomes will be necessary to determine “success” in those courses. But how ...


Development And Validation Of An Open Ended Assessment - Creative Excercises, Jessica Orvis, Deborah Sauder Mar 2011

Development And Validation Of An Open Ended Assessment - Creative Excercises, Jessica Orvis, Deborah Sauder

SoTL Commons Conference

Nationally standardized multiple choice exams are used heavily in assessment of many fields. While these exams can provide valuable information about student learning, many educators believe that multiple choice exams are too limiting. The presenters advocate for the addition of a more open ended assessment that would measure student learning of a different type, while still being incorporated within a conventional exam. This session focuses on a new open ended assessment called the Creative Exercise (CE) which consists of a prompt, leading students to write down a limited number of distinct, correct and relevant facts about the prompt. Participants will ...


Wikipedia And Academia, Friends At Last? Integrating Wiki-Technology Into The Classroom, Lianna Davis, Amy Roth Mar 2011

Wikipedia And Academia, Friends At Last? Integrating Wiki-Technology Into The Classroom, Lianna Davis, Amy Roth

SoTL Commons Conference

The Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit that supports Wikipedia, partnered with university professors from Georgetown, George Mason, George Washington, Harvard, Indiana, LeHigh, Syracuse and Berkeley in the fall of 2010 to bring Wikipedia into courses with the Public Policy Initiative. Throughout the semester, students, faculty, and assignment assistants known as Ambassadors are providing feedback on the teaching and learning experience through surveys and focus groups conducted both by Wikimedia Foundation staff and WestEd. Preliminary results indicate that through assignments based in Wikipedia, students feel that they gained more experience in writing, research, collaboration, and media literacy, than with traditional class assignments ...

Teaching Democratic Citizenship: Theory Versus Practice, Mary Hjelm, Chris Nesmith

SoTL Commons Conference

This session will present and discuss the findings of a semester-long study of student learning outcomes in a required course for two baccalaureate degree programs at regional campuses of a large public university in the Southeast. Pre- and post-course surveys were administered, asking students about their past behaviors and attitudes regarding voting, volunteering, writing their representatives, and other measures of civic engagement. After several activities and classroom discussion, students were then given the same survey and some other follow-up questions to collect data on their perceptions of and attitudes toward civic engagement and active citizenship.


Discrepant Teaching Events: Addressing Students' Misconceptions, Judith Longfield, Nathan Palmer Mar 2011

Discrepant Teaching Events: Addressing Students' Misconceptions, Judith Longfield, Nathan Palmer

SoTL Commons Conference

A discrepant teaching event has an unexpected outcome which vividly portraying what is often an abstract construct or concept, thereby uncovering students' misconceptions and tacit beliefs. Once students' ideas are exposed, instructors are better able to plan for and “confront” these misconceptions, thereby increasing students' learning. This roundtable will begin with two instructors, one a science teacher educator and the other a sociologist, briefly demonstrating how they utilized discrepant teaching events (DTEs) in their classes and studied its impact on students' learning. During the ensuing discussion, participants will be asked to generate ideas for using DTEs in their classes, and ...

The session begins with an overview of the POGIL approach. Each of the panelists will then provide a discipline specific example adapting the approach and demonstrate how the approach has affected student learning. This will be followed by a work session ...


Building-Up Student Success, Maria Babiuc-Hamilton Mar 2011

Building-Up Student Success, Maria Babiuc-Hamilton

SoTL Commons Conference

Students' ability to think critically is essential in achieving success not only in college, but also later in their jobs. In order to increase students' long term performance, the general education program at our university was completely restructured to allow the introduction of three required credit hours in critical thinking across curriculum at the freshmen level. The dissemination of the learning outcomes is complicated, because this course is not content driven. The solution is for students to including a meta-cognitive reflection with their assignments, describing their personal academic plan and their experience with the learning process. This proposal presents the ...
