Scaffolding Sotl: A Two-Year Iterative Process To Launch A Sotl Community, Sue Mattson, Jen Friberg 2019 University of South Alabama

Scaffolding Sotl: A Two-Year Iterative Process To Launch A Sotl Community, Sue Mattson, Jen Friberg

SoTL Commons Conference

What does it take to successfully launch and build a SoTL community? In 2017, the Innovation in Learning Center (ILC) at the University of South Alabama (USA) piloted a Summer SoTL Academy as the foundation for a SoTL community of practice. This program started with a 2-day “Intro to SoTL” workshop followed by other professional development supports during the academic year. The program continued in 2018; however, modifications were made to better scaffold the program based on 2017 data. This presentation shares outcome data from the summer academy and program supports as well as lessons learned for future iterations.


Who, When, Where, Why & How: Thoughts On Sotl Advocacy, Jennifer Friberg 2019 Illinois State University

Who, When, Where, Why & How: Thoughts On Sotl Advocacy, Jennifer Friberg

SoTL Commons Conference

As teachers and as researchers, we engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) for a variety of reasons. These reasons are valuable to us – individually — in terms of driving positive change in our students’ learning or in our own teaching praxis. Without doubt, these local changes influenced by outcomes from SoTL work are important. One might wonder, though, how results and information gathered from these SoTL studies are valued by stakeholders across institutions and disciplines. To date, strong and consistent advocacy for SoTL has been the mechanism for this transfer from local to broader audiences. SoTL became an ...


Attending To T&L: Sociocultural Faculty Development For Diversity-Responsive Sotl, Tara L.S. Kishbaugh, Lori Leaman 2019 Eastern Mennonite University

Attending To T&L: Sociocultural Faculty Development For Diversity-Responsive Sotl, Tara L.S. Kishbaugh, Lori Leaman

SoTL Commons Conference

While numerous SoTL studies have focused on closing the learning gap of diverse students through the deployment of learning strategies to meet their needs, these studies may not explicitly recognize that both “learning” and “need” are by very nature socio-cultural endeavors, not simply tactical or pedagogical moves. This study examines results and implications of a year-long, pre-SOTL course to cultivate faculty habits of deep awareness of the teaching-learning process as an endeavor laden with socio-cultural, not just pedagogical, underpinnings. Participants will complete a self/institutional assessment, identify transferable factors of the model, and engage in a sample inquiry activity.


Motivating Formative Assessment Engagement For Flipped Instruction Content, Kurt Schmitz 2019 Georgia State University

Motivating Formative Assessment Engagement For Flipped Instruction Content, Kurt Schmitz

SoTL Commons Conference

Hybrid and Blended instructional approaches are increasingly being applied to University level curriculum. These techniques shift a significant burden for engaging course content to the students as an outside-the-classroom activity. This study of contrasting hybrid classrooms (two medium size and two large size) investigates the efficacy of completion scores in an open gradebook to motivate student engagement with formative assessments. Definitions are provided for hybrid instruction, and formative assessment to establish clear measures for data collection in this field experiment. A between-groups ANOVA analysis is presented with conclusions and recommendations.


Flipped Classroom In Introductory Mathematics: Data Analysis Of Student Success, Cathy M. Frey Professor of Mathematics 2019 Norwich University

Flipped Classroom In Introductory Mathematics: Data Analysis Of Student Success, Cathy M. Frey Professor Of Mathematics

SoTL Commons Conference

This talk will compare student success between a traditional lecture format versus a flipped classroom model in MA240: Introduction to Number Theory and Cryptology. In the flipped model students watched lecture videos created with a tablet PC or iPad Pro before class and completed ‘homework’ exercises during the regular class period. (An example video can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y5RcMWiUyyE ).

Analysis of the results from flipped classroom as compared to those with the traditional lecture format suggests significant improvement using the flipped format on both the final exam as well as the final course grade.


Building Connections In Writing From Play To Work, Keturah Mazo 2019 Florida Institute of Technology - Melbourne

Building Connections In Writing From Play To Work, Keturah Mazo

SoTL Commons Conference

In my Communication classroom, I use the act of building to teach foundations of writing instructions, basic elements of design, scale modeling, and introduction to presentations. With small sets of Legos and small sets of Connectagons, the class is divided into groups to build and design their own item. If it is for Scientific and Technical Communication, instructions must be developed. If it is for Professional Communication, the elements of design are reviewed as well as story building are developed as a part of teamwork. The poster allows for the lesson plans to be viewed and discussed with student samples ...


Development And Validation Of A Discipline-Independent Research Product Rubric Alligned With The Research Skill Development Framework, Timothy D. Champion 2019 Johnson C Smith University

Development And Validation Of A Discipline-Independent Research Product Rubric Alligned With The Research Skill Development Framework, Timothy D. Champion

SoTL Commons Conference

The Quality Enhancement Plan at JCSU is focused on Undergraduate Research. Students will be producing many research products, the ultimate product is their Senior Investigative Paper (SIP). Individual programs have rubrics for the assessment of these SIPs and other products. We perceived the need for a single rubric that could be applied across disciplines that focused on the facets of research as described in the Research Skill Development Framework (RSDF), cross-referenced by the quality of the product. A rubric was drafted, piloted, and revised. A study involving 18 faculty reviewing 24 past SIPs was conducted to establish reliability and validity.


How Much Of Myself Do I Bring To The Classroom?, Adrienne L. Cohen 2019 Georgia Southern University

How Much Of Myself Do I Bring To The Classroom?, Adrienne L. Cohen

SoTL Commons Conference

Autoethnographic research was conducted on a professor’s decisions regarding how much of her personal experiences with major loss she would bring into her Death and Dying class. Her research question was, “Is it safe and helpful to students for an instructor to bring traumatic personal experiences into the classroom?” Using a self-reflective process of exploration and feedback from her students the researcher/instructor negotiated the boundaries between her personal and professional lives. Results from this autoenthographic study reveal the ways in which an instructor can safely bring her own experiences into the classroom as a strategy for enhancing student ...


Fostering Critical Awareness Of The Role Media Play In Sexual Socialization, McKinley Thomas 2019 Georgia Southern University

Fostering Critical Awareness Of The Role Media Play In Sexual Socialization, Mckinley Thomas

SoTL Commons Conference

To help students understand how media inform sexual development, a group pedagogical method titled “Sexual Socialization and the Media” was developed for an undergraduate human sexuality course. Groups selected and analyze various forms of media. Reflections were provided on scripting, skills, symbolism, stereotypes, and messaging conflicts. Results from 35 students indicate a high level of efficacy with 94.3% recommending the assignment be used in future classes. In all, the assignment received a score of 93.3% in terms of its “…usefulness in understanding the connection between sexuality and the media.” Pedagogical approaches are an ideal conduit toward continued sexual ...


Teaching Teachers’ Teachers About Teaching, Carl Sorgen 2019 Georgia Southern University

Teaching Teachers’ Teachers About Teaching, Carl Sorgen

SoTL Commons Conference

What do you teach educational administrators about teaching? In both P-12 and higher education, administrators benefit from a course on adult pedagogy (i.e., andragogy). This poster highlights the topics, activities, assessments, and outcomes from a graduate-level course at Georgia Southern University, Pedagogical Issues in Educational Leadership. The key topics include: today's adult learner, adult theories of learning, curriculum design and delivery, best practices in college teaching, personal teaching philosophy, the assessment of learning, and the evaluation of teaching. When students finish, they have an evidence-based foundation in exemplary course design principles and have also articulated how they reify ...


From Rigor To Vigor: The Past, Present, And Potential Of Inquiry As Stance, Elizabeth Currin 2019 University of Florida

From Rigor To Vigor: The Past, Present, And Potential Of Inquiry As Stance, Elizabeth Currin

Journal of Practitioner Research

Over the years, practitioner research has been both marginalized and trivialized within the larger educational research landscape. This article challenges that exclusion by tracing the emergence and development of the inquiry stance construct. Understanding the origins of teacher inquiry can contribute to its cultivation and ultimately lend a necessary rigor—or better yet, vigor—to practitioner research. Indeed, inquiry as stance endures because it is far more than a best practice or ready-made technique. Deeply ontological and epistemological, an inquiry stance enables educators to transform their teaching for the sake of all learners in the face of an ever-changing educational ...

Journey To Refuge: Understanding Refugees, Exploring Trauma, And Best Practices For Newcomers And Schools, Trina D. Harlow

NPP eBooks

Pre-K through 12th grade schools within the United States have become much more diverse in recent years. Schools are now commonly not only diverse because of diverse students born in the United States, but also have many immigrant students. A growing number of these immigrant students are resettled children who have refugee status. In schools, these recent immigrants are called newcomers. This book is a culmination of research and anecdotal experiences regarding the refugee issue as it pertains to these students in American schools and schools elsewhere in the world. Scholars, policy makers, educators, those who work in the refugee ...

Liberal Education And The Capitalocene In American Higher Education, Laura Smithers 2019 Old Dominion University

Liberal Education And The Capitalocene In American Higher Education, Laura Smithers

Educational Foundations & Leadership Faculty Publications

Data-driven control is remaking American higher education as the Capitalocene is remaking environment around us. In higher education, how might we orientate the queer potential of liberal education to produce the conditions of possibility of an Earth beyond the Capitalocene and data-driven control, an Earth that produces expansive notions of student success and racially just futures? I take up this inquiry in three sections. First, I establish relations between the orientation of the Capitalocene and the apparatus of data-driven control to develop a critical new materialisms analytic. I then diffract the practices of a student success initiative at a west ...


Nuanced Narratives: Reporting With Critical Race And Feminist Standpoint Theories, Emily Margaret Pelland 2019 West Virginia University

Nuanced Narratives: Reporting With Critical Race And Feminist Standpoint Theories, Emily Margaret Pelland

Graduate Theses, Dissertations, and Problem Reports

The Google Expedition titled WWI Era Through the Eyes of the Chicago Defender explores African American experiences during the early years of the Great Migration (1910-1970). Conventional journalism relies on the false idea that journalists are meant to be, and can be, objective, outside observers. This report provides tools for journalists to create more nuanced, thorough storytelling endeavors. This report describes the theoretical framework and intent of the Virtual Reality (VR) project for students in grades 8 and above. It utilizes Feminist Standpoint Theory (FST) and Critical Race Theory (CRT) to cultivate a VR experience that acknowledges particular, overlooked aspects ...


Board 51: An Initial Step Towards Measuring First-Generation College Students’ Personal Agency: A Scale Validation, Dina Verdín, Allison Godwin 2019 Purdue University

Board 51: An Initial Step Towards Measuring First-Generation College Students’ Personal Agency: A Scale Validation, Dina Verdín, Allison Godwin

School of Engineering Education Graduate Student Series

This research paper describes the development of a scale to measure how first-generation college students use engineering as a tool for making a difference in their community and world or personal agency. Personal agency is a capability that every individual holds; it is described by Bandura as an individual’s beliefs about their capabilities to exercise control over events that affect their lives through purposeful and reflective actions. Agentic actions allow students to explore, maneuver and impact their environment for the achievement of a goal or set of goals. This study identifies how cognitive processes of forethought, intention, reactivity, and ...

Greta Grisez

When I say that I am doing a Dance and Human Rights joint senior project people often look at me like I have 3 heads instead of one perfectly sane one that just so happens to want to explore the way we live in this world through both overlapping lenses. In this brain of mine that works just fine, the two subjects are intricately linked.

Due to my interest in this connection, I have become frustrated with human rights work that is often written with a sole focus on the global/big view, distant, technical, theoretical ...
