Existing Collaborations

MERLOT/SERC/Societies
Partnership


MERLOT contains links to thousands of
educational websites, many with peer
reviews and assignments.


SERC has a well defined pedagogic format,
focusing on the use of individual activities in
the classroom.


Authors and users of educational materials
identify strongly with their professional
societies.

How can we link content and
pedagogy to improve teaching?


Faculty think about pedagogy in the context
of the specific topics they teach (if they think
about it at all)


Impact of content vs methods cannot be
disentangled


Strong interest in topical examples



Link Pedagogy to Examples

SERC Starting Point

Intellectual model underpinning the site is described here:

Example SERC Modules



Game
-
Based Learning

was written to assist geoscience
faculty who want to start using games to help them teach.


Interactive Lectures

provide short activities that can break
up a lecture.


Just

-
Time

teaching gets students to read assigned
material outside of class, respond to short questions
online, and then participate in discussion and collaborative
exercises in the following class period.


Conceptual Models

are qualitative models that help
highlight important connections in real world systems and
processes.


Mathematical and Statistical Models

involve solving
relevant equation(s) of a system or characterizing a system
based upon its statistical parameters.
