Teaching With Digital 3d Models Of Minerals And Rocks, Graham DM Andrews, Gabrielle Labishak, Sarah Brown, Shelby L. Isom, Holly Danielle Pettus, Trevor Byers 2020 West Virginia University

Teaching With Digital 3d Models Of Minerals And Rocks, Graham Dm Andrews, Gabrielle Labishak, Sarah Brown, Shelby L. Isom, Holly Danielle Pettus, Trevor Byers

Faculty & Staff Scholarship

The disruption to geoscience curricula due to the COVID-19 pandemic highlights the difficulty of making mineral and rock samples accessible to students online rather than through traditional lab classes. In spring 2020, our community had to adapt rapidly to remote instruction; this transition amplified existing disparities in access to geoscience education but can be a catalyst to increase accessibility and flexibility in instruction permanently. Fortunately, a rich collection of 3D mineral and rock samples is being generated by a community of digital modelers (e.g., Perkins et al., 2019).

Grand Challenge No. 4: Curriculum Design – Curriculum Matters: Case Studies From Canada And The Uk, John R. Welch, Michael Corbishley

Journal of Archaeology and Education

Archaeology in the 21st century faces outward more than inward, with many archaeologists working on projects that actively involve young people, descendant communities, diverse colleagues and clients, and the general public. The ways and means of learning and teaching about the past, as outlined in the curricula of primary, secondary, and post-secondary schools, always reflect the prevalent pedagogies of the age. Our paper comments upon two different ways of learning about archaeology. First, it presents an online university graduate program in Canada for post-Baccalaureate Cultural Resource Management (CRM) practitioners and a module on archaeology and education, which may form part ...

Grand Challenge No. 3: Digital Archaeology Technology-Enabled Learning In Archaeology, Meaghan M. Peuramaki-Brown, Shawn G. Morton, Oula Seitsonen, Chris Sims, Dave Blaine

Journal of Archaeology and Education

Archaeology is traditionally a hands-on, in-person discipline when it comes to formal and informal instruction; however, more and more we are seeing the application of blended and online instruction and outreach implemented within our discipline. To this point, much of the movement in this direction has been related to a greater administrative emphasis on filling university classrooms, as well as the increasing importance of public outreach and engagement when it comes to presenting our research. More recently, we have all had to adjust our activities and interactions in reaction to physical distancing requirements during a pandemic. Whether in a physical ...

It advocates the adoption of PBL by highlighting the challenges/pitfalls associated with online exams supported by proctoring software tools.


Comparison Of Retention Rates Between Traditional On-Ground And Online Biology Laboratory Courses In The Community College Setting, Megan Winborne 2020 The University of Southern Mississippi

Comparison Of Retention Rates Between Traditional On-Ground And Online Biology Laboratory Courses In The Community College Setting, Megan Winborne

Dissertations

Community colleges provide vital educational resources to students across the nation. Online learning has become an integral part of the course offerings for community colleges. With regards to online learning, there is a lack of empirical evidence and research focused on community college offered biology laboratories, particularly concerning retention rates of these students. Means, Toyama, Murphy, and Bakia. (2013) found that even though there are copious amounts of studies dedicated to evaluation of evidence-based practices in online learning formats, many of them neglected to review retention rates associated with online educational courses.

The purpose of this study was to determine ...


Review Of Flower Darby And James M. Lang’S Small Teaching Online: Applying Learning Science In Online Classes, Christian Aguiar 2020 University of the District of Columbia & NOVA Online

Review Of Flower Darby And James M. Lang’S Small Teaching Online: Applying Learning Science In Online Classes, Christian Aguiar

Inquiry: The Journal of the Virginia Community Colleges

In their 2019 book Small Teaching Online, Flower Darby and James M. Lang present a model for online instruction that uses what the authors call the “small teaching” approach, which posits that college faculty should look for small, high-impact changes they can make to their teaching practice in place of wholesale overhauls. The authors explore the unique challenges that online learners struggle with, from feeling disengaged to feeling overwhelmed by the demands of self-directed learning, then offer practical, sustainable solutions for each. Their text thus offers helpful teaching practices both for new online teachers and veterans.

No Perfect Syllabus For Distance Learning: Dbt Skills For Deciding How To Teach Throughout Uncertainty, Lynne-Marie Shea 2020 Suffolk University

No Perfect Syllabus For Distance Learning: Dbt Skills For Deciding How To Teach Throughout Uncertainty, Lynne-Marie Shea

Pedagogy and the Human Sciences

The COVID-19 Pandemic presents a unique set of challenges as we work to continue teaching and learning in the midst of a shared crisis. The processes of sharing and acquiring knowledge that define pedagogical practice, though, is so much more than the sum of the “whats” and “hows” of teaching practice. As we consider how best to remain rooted to pedagogy within the confines created by the Corona Virus, the fusion of present-focused awareness and dialectical theory that is central to Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) provides a framework through which to respond to uncontrollable circumstances with both acceptance and change ...
