  • Introducing the Remote Mentoring of Undergraduate Research Students
           (ReMentURS) Workshop Series: Initial Evaluation and Plans for Wider
           Implementation

    • Authors: Elizabeth Sargent et al.
      Abstract: The primary objective of the Remote Mentoring of Undergraduate Research Students (ReMentURS) workshop series is to design a remotely available professional development training that will provide rigorous research concept and skills introduction to incoming undergraduate research students. This pilot run eight-week remote learning workshop series includes digital presentations, informational videos, virtual demonstrations, and aligned comprehension checks to foster student mindsets towards becoming independent research scientists. Preliminary assessment of the of ReMentURS program reveals that participants self-report gaining a variety of skills through the series and are likely to use the content in their future course and research laboratories. ReMentURS material can be shared with any undergraduate student who is interested in joining a research group to familiarize them with basic research techniques. Student learning gains will continue to be evaluated throughout the series and this initial assessment will be used towards the betterment of the future workshops.

  • Going with the Flow: Shifting Face-to-Face PD to Fully Online in the Era
           of COVID-19

    • Authors: Heather Scott et al.
      Abstract: Immersive professional development is often used to provide teachers first-hand experience in developing placebased curricula. Knowing this, we had carefully crafted such a professional development for our participants to learn how to engage their students in local watershed research and ecology. However, following year one of a two-year grant-funded weeklong summer professional development opportunity for teachers in the Okefenokee Swamp, a shift to online instruction occurred due to COVID-19 related travel restrictions. Although the first summer in the swamp and the successive year of follow-up with teacher participants proved successful, the shift to online asynchronous instruction proved surprisingly successful as well. Qualitative and quantitative data compared across year one and year two indicated positive outcomes, such as a self-paced, engaging experience that required outdoor activities in participants’ local area.

  • Comparison of Student Outcomes in a Course-based Undergraduate Research
           Experience: Face-to-Face, Hybrid, and Online Delivery of a Biology
           Laboratory

    • Authors: Sue Ellen DeChenne-Peters et al.
      Abstract: Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) incorporate authentic research instead of confirmatory exercises into laboratory courses. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a general shift in instructional modalities from face-to-face (F2F) towards hybrid and online teaching. Student impacts caused by the abrupt shift to online teaching have been characterized, but comparisons between modalities for CUREs are missing. Therefore, we evaluated student learning and attitudinal outcomes in F2F, hybrid, and online delivery of an introductory college biology CURE. Additionally, we compared student outcomes between White/Asian students and persons excluded due to ethnicity or race (PEER) in these modalities. There were significant learning differences between modalities, but there were no significant learning differences by PEER status. Of six attitudinal variables, one varied significantly by modality and three varied significantly for PEER students. These results suggest that CUREs can be adapted to the online or hybrid modality with minimal impacts on student outcomes.

  • SoTL at Georgia Southern: perceptions, engagement and impact

    • Authors: Diana Botnaru et al.
      Abstract: The purpose of this study was to investigate the state of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) at our institution, including SoTL perceptions, engagement and impact. A link to an online anonymous survey (31 questions) in Qualtrics was distributed to all academic units. The final sample consisted of 90 faculty and administrators from a population of 1,327, reflecting a response rate of almost 7%. Over half of the participants engaged in SoTL research. More often they presented their work at conferences than in publications. Perceptions of support at departmental and Faculty Center levels were positive, but negative at the institutional level. Qualitative data indicated the legitimacy of SoTL and lack of support as major barriers to SoTL research. There was strong agreement among participants that SoTL positively impacted course design, types of assessments used, personal expectations and quality of student learning.

  • Leveraging SoTL to Improve Teaching and Learning during the COVID-19
           Pandemic

    • Authors: Trent W. Maurer
      Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic necessitated unprecedented changes to teaching and learning in higher education. SoTL-active faculty were uniquely positioned to leverage their knowledge and expertise to improve teaching and learning during the pandemic not only in their own courses, but through a knowledge mobilization approach also in broader contexts (e.g., departmental colleagues, extradepartmental colleagues, etc.). In this piece, I reflect on how I leveraged my SoTL expertise, in conjunction with my disciplinary expertise, to improve teaching and learning in my courses and those of my colleagues, demonstrating the value of SoTL-active faculty as cosmopolitan assets to their institutions.

  • Collaborative Learning of International Undergraduate English Language
           Learners in Small-group Writing Communities

    • Authors: Yiting Chu
      Abstract: This article reports a study on how international English language learner (ELL) students participated in a collaborative learning community comprised of peers and peer tutors in a writing center in a U.S. university. Drawing on the theory of community of practice (CoP), qualitative data were collected from weekly observations of three groups and in-depth interviews with four ELL students and six tutors. Findings suggested that these three groups functioned differently as CoPs with varied levels of participation and social interaction among the students and between students and tutors. A mismatch between the goals and roles of the students and those of the tutors, and group dynamics among students and between students and tutors were discussed. Implications for practices and research to better support international ELL students were discussed.

  • Phrasing Feedback to Improve Students' Writing in a Large First-Year
           Humanities Course

    • Authors: Mairi Cowan et al.
      Abstract: On a revise-and-resubmit assignment in a large introductory History course, students were provided with feedback that was phrased either as questions, statements, or imperatives. This study examines which form was most likely to lead to improvement in the students’ writing. Generalized estimating equations (GEE) were used to analyze a data set comprising 669 individual pieces of feedback on 67 sets of papers. Researchers found that, overall, students were most likely to implement feedback phrased as imperatives and least likely to implement feedback phrased as questions, and that the likelihood shifted somewhat depending on which aspect of writing was being commented upon; the extent of change required; the students’ past performance in the course; and the person providing the feedback.

  • Enhancing Critical Thinking Skills and Dispositions Through Community
           Dialogue in an Academic Writing Programme

    • Authors: Sylvia S C Sim
      Abstract: The ability to think and write critically is a core outcome in higher education. Many universities provide writing programs for undergraduates to develop sound argumentation skills and build the foundation to engage in academic conversations. Still many students struggle with academic writing. This paper argues that teaching using instructional frameworks is not sufficient; learning will be more effective when situated within a community of practice. Drawing from the learning experiences of students who participated in a community-based activity in a freshmen academic writing class in Singapore, I share my insights on how reframing learning from a structure-driven approach to a community-based experience had enhanced learning dispositions and outcomes. Results show that when learners viewed academic writing as a socially situated practice, and not a task to be completed to fulfil academic requirements, the dispositions needed for critical thinking were honed to drive them towards writing with more criticality.

  • Exploring Exceptional Education Preservice Teachers’ Mathematics
           Anxiety

    • Authors: Gina Gresham Dr.
      Abstract: This study investigated preservice teachers’ levels of mathematics anxiety before and after a mathematics methods course. Changes were measured using manipulatives and other activities to make mathematics concepts more concrete and meaningful. Both quantitative and qualitative measures were utilized. Informal discussions, informal interviews, and questionnaire-guided narrative interviews were conducted. Data revealed a statistically significant reduction in mathematics anxiety (p < .001). Results have implications for teacher education programs concerning the measurement of mathematics anxiety levels among exceptional education preservice teachers and the determination of specific contexts in which mathematics anxiety can be interpreted and reduced.

  • Less is More: Course Redesign and the Development of an Atmospheric
           Science Process Skills Assessment

    • Authors: Dawn M. Kopacz et al.
      Abstract: General education science courses strive to promote scientific literacy and the development of scientific process skills. However, research shows that many general education courses are still designed to stress content mastery. In this study, the number of topics in five semester-long introductory atmospheric science courses was reduced to increase time for the development of scientific process skills, a critical component of scientific literacy. The Atmospheric and Climate Science Literacy Frameworks and a general science education skills rubric were used to guide the course redesign and development of course activities. Details of the course structure and sample course activities are described. A pre-post-test was developed to evaluate attainment of five scientific process skills and the efficacy of the course redesign. Preliminary validity and reliability studies suggest that the majority of the assessment questions are reliable, though further validation of the assessment is required.

  • An Exploration of Concussion Assessment and Management Knowledge in
           Athletic Therapy Students

    • Authors: Colin D. King et al.
      Abstract: Recent research has found substantial gaps in knowledge surrounding concussion assessment and management in various groups of Canadian healthcare professionals, including medical students, physiotherapists, chiropractic students, and family medicine physicians. The purpose of this project was to explore concussion knowledge in a sample of athletic therapy students and to use these findings to make practical pedagogical recommendations to improve concussion education. A sequential explanatory mixed-methods approach (initial questionnaire, student interviews, clinical educator interviews) was used to investigate the research question. The findings showed a large gap between theoretical knowledge and practical abilities to assess and manage concussions. Additionally, students felt less prepared to assist throughout the entire continuum of concussion care (from initial recognition to return-to-play). Based on these findings, educators should consider innovative pedagogical strategies that focus on true competence development in concussion assessment and management while bridging the gap between foundational theory and practical application/skill development.

  • Educators’ Use and Views of Simulations as Teaching Tools within a
           Discipline: The Example of Hospitality and Tourism

    • Authors: Cynthia S. Deale et al.
      Abstract: This Scholarship of Teaching and Learning study investigated hospitality faculty members’ perceptions and use of industry-related simulations in hospitality and tourism education to help the authors understand how simulations are and can be used as educational tools. Using learning engagement theory as a framework, respondents to a survey perceived that simulations help students develop decision-making skills, increase problem-solving skills, integrate knowledge from other classes, learn to work with others, and link theory to practice, and noted that simulations are fun to use. A significant positive relationship was found between the number of semesters educators have used simulations and their satisfaction with the simulations. Perceived drawbacks to the use of simulations included that they are costly, time-consuming, too complex, and lack realism and validity. Based on the findings, suggestions are made for improving the use of simulations in hospitality and tourism education, and limitations and ideas for further research are offered.

  • Development and Use of Open Educational Resources in Research Methods for
           Psychology

    • Authors: Stephanie da Silva PhD et al.
      Abstract: Research methods course(s), a standard in psychology programs, often use multiple textbooks to address conceptual and data-analytic information. This study involved transitioning from traditional textbooks to open educational resources in a research methods course. Two psychology instructors, each offering course sections, identified open-access textbooks that aligned with course learning objectives and developed instructional materials to accompany those textbooks. All materials were organized publicly in an institutional subject guide. We compared students’ grades, pretest-posttest scores, and survey reports of resource use and evaluation in a spring semester, when traditional/costly textbooks were used, to the following fall semester, when no-cost textbooks were used. Student grades and pretest-posttest growth, and reported use and ratings of course materials, were similar across semesters. Though the present findings are limited in scope, they suggest that no-cost resources can be used successfully for teaching research methods with minimal transition difficulties and without student learning deficits.

  • A Mixed Methods Process Evaluation of an Integrated Course Design on
           Teaching Mixed Methods Research

    • Authors: Su-I Hou
      Abstract: There is a critical need to conduct empirical studies on teaching mixed methods research (MMR). This study used a mixed methods process evaluation to provide practical guidance on effective design elements and impactful teaching approaches among five cohort groups of students (2016-2020) enrolled in a doctoral MMR course. Students engaged in hands-on data analyses with special attention to MMR writing structure. I shared topical outlines with corresponding teaching and learning activities from the design perspective, as well as course experience and impact including challenges and approaches taken to learn from student perspectives. I also highlighted four integrated course features/themes identified as the most helpful teaching approaches. The current study provides practical guidance on the integrated MMR course design and process evaluation contributing to the MMR field.

  • What Can We Learn from Exam Grade Distributions'

    • Authors: Daniel R. Lewin
      Abstract: A course with good learning outcomes is one in which most of the enrolled students achieve the mastery specified in the predefined learning objectives. Since the enrolment is invariably a mix of students with heterogeneous capabilities, the class average grade is a poor indicator of how the class is divided into at least two groups, of high- and low-performers. Clearly, achieving the desired outcomes implies increasing the proportion of high-performing students and their mean grade by providing appropriately designed teaching protocols. In this paper, the actual class grade distribution is approximated by a bimodal probability distribution function, whose parameters enable the proportions and average performance of these two groups to be quantified. This paper describes the methodology to achieve this and demonstrates its usage to diagnose example exam grade distributions, as well as to provide quantification of the impact of pedagogic changes on the degree of achieving teaching objectives.

This mixed methods study investigates student impressions of a 4-page full-length infographic-style visual syllabus. Identically formatted infographic syllabi were used in three courses with different student populations—a freshman seminar, a 300-level elective liberal arts course, and a 400-level minor elective course. Students completed a short questionnaire to capture their immediate reactions to the syllabus, followed by a longer questionnaire at the end of the semester. Across class standing, students strongly preferred an infographic syllabus and described it as easy to use, memorable, organized, and engaging. Students reported reading the infographic syllabus more completely, feeling less anxious about the course and more comfortable with its requirements due to the syllabus style. Recommendations for creating an engaging infographic-style visual syllabus are shared.

  • Effectiveness of Group Work Contracts to Facilitate Collaborative Group
           Learning and Reduce Anxiety in Traditional Face-to-Face Lecture and Online
           Distance Education Course Formats

    • Authors: Sydney F. Brannen et al.
      Abstract: Group work (GW) in undergraduate education facilitates the development of communication and collaborative skills. However, dysfunctional and inequitable group dynamics can have adverse effects, leading to increased anxiety. This research sought to determine the effectiveness of a Group Work Contract to facilitate the GW process in the face-to-face (n=168) and online (n=105) formats of a third year nutritional science course. Changes in students’ attitudes and approaches to GW were assessed before (semester week 4) and after (semester week 12) completion of the contract and assignment via online surveys. The results in both course formats were similar, wherein the Group Work Contract reduced student anxiety and improved group dynamics and communication between group members, resulting in an improved learning experience overall . Further, the preferred methods of GW online communication utilized social networking platforms. This data demonstrates the benefits of formally structuring the GW process to optimize the student learning experience.

  • Becoming Inclusive Teacher Educators: Self-Study as a Professional
           Learning Tool

    • Authors: Saiqa Azam Dr. et al.
      Abstract: This article describes a self-study inquiry project designed and conducted by a self-study group at a Faculty of Education in an Atlantic Canadian University. The seven-member group engaged in a collaborative self-study inquiry while adopting Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles in their teacher education practices and documented their professional learning. This yearlong self-study inquiry project encompassed several data collection methods to examine inclusive practices of self-study group members, including personal reflections, minutes of weekly meetings, artifacts, and field notes. This article focuses on how UDL provided a means for three group members to critically examine their inclusive practices at the beginning, during, and following the collaborative self-study inquiry. Using a case study methodology, self-study cases of these three faculty members—Angela, Ryan, and Sarah (Pseudonyms)—were developed. The cases reported on the journey of these faculty members in improving their inclusive practice through their engagement in self-study.
