Research related to teaching and learning

Followed up on work with School of Education PhD student Orvil White to adapt techniques in laboratory exercises used in GEOL-G 105 for the teaching of geologic time. This will be part of an ongoing study using students in a single class to see whether teaching techniques can solve the problems associated with non-science majors grasping concepts related to large numbers with a particular emphasis on geologic time.

Participated with Dr. J. Elkins from the Department of Geology at Bowling Green State University that is investigating how students handle learning in field-based setting. The project specifically addresses how the environment itself, referred to as novelty space, can affect the student's ability to learn.

Initiated a study to investigate decision making in a field-based learning environment. This study addresses what is not a unique situation for many real life situations, but one that is common in teaching within the earth and environmental sciences – the use of field-based learning. The field component adds a new dimension to the decision making process that involves both spatial and temporal components that are linked to the student's ability to make decisions and learn to problem solve.
