21st Century Reasoning Modalities In Interdisciplinary Stem Education, Bryan Gallant

Georgia Southern University Research Symposium

The overarching goal of the Institute for Interdisciplinary STEM Education (iå_STEMe) at Georgia Southern University is to improve student engagement and learning outcomes in STEM courses through immersion in authentic, real-world, problem-based and place-based educational settings. To accomplish this goal, iå_STEMe has partnered with 10 middle and high schools located in Georgia to incorporate a series of reasoning modalities developed to meet the requirements of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to develop STEM literate citizens capable of making informed decisions, and to open up opportunities to fill the growing need for STEM professionals. The reasoning modalities developed are Complex ...

Teaching Preschool: An Evaluation Of Laboratory School Courses, Alice Hall, John Peden, Joanna Hollaway

SoTL Commons Conference

This study assessed the impact of laboratory teaching courses on knowledge and skill attainment among student teachers at the Georgia Southern Child Development Center. Previously, faculty relied on course evaluations, tests, written assignments, and anecdotal evidence from graduates to assess student learning outcomes. Our purpose was to provide evidence that laboratory teaching courses enhance undergraduate education by providing students with hands-on experiences with children in a supervised setting. A pre-post design was used to administer a 17 item questionnaire to students in CHFD 2135 and CHFD 4131 in the Fall 2009 and Spring 2010 semesters. Questions addressed topics and skills ...
