Title: Building Transatlantic Graduate Education Programs in Biorenewables
Event: Association of Public and Land-grant Universities – Association for European Life Sciences Universities (APLU-ICIU) 2010 Conference
Ghent University, Belgium
Presentation Date: April 7-9, 2010
Description: Over the past five years, biofuels and biobased products have emerged as international research and development priorities. The advances developed by these efforts will undoubtedly lead to a new “Bioeconomy” delivering energy and motor fuels as well as the food we need while sustaining our quality of life with consumer products we need. If the dreams of a new global economy based on annually renewable agricultural feedstocks instead of non-renewable petroleum are to be realized, new graduate education programs are desperately needed. These educational programs must be put in place quickly to deliver highly trained graduates in science and engineering needed by industry to create innovative and economic technologies. Additionally, we must focus on sustainability, as the Bioeconomy would fall short if it led to merely replacing one unsustainable petroleum system with another based on agriculture. Leaders recognize that the education needs of the Bioeconomy are best met by developing an international approach.

Title: Visionlearning: Building an Open Online Learning Environment for Promoting the Nature and Practice of Science
Event: The Sloan-C International Conference on Online Learning
Caribe Royale Hotel
Orlando, FL
Presentation Date: October 29, 2009
Description: In 2000, we launched a novel online learning environment, Visionlearning, to promote interdisciplinary science education. The program was funded by the National Science Foundation and incorporated high-quality, peer-reviewed learning resources with communication tools and mechanisms for instructors to customize these resources and the learning environment. In 2006, we received a Comprehensive Program Grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) to develop additional resources focused on the nature of scientific research. These materials present science as a method of practice as opposed to a collection of facts and formulas. Preliminary assessment of this project suggests significant improvements in student understanding of science, and these results will be presented at this conference.

Both in-classroom and public use of the materials available at Visionlearning have grown considerably; over 7,000 teachers and 36,000 students are registered for the site, and the learning materials on the site now receive almost half a million visits per month. International traffic has grown extensively, with Mexico, India, Canada, the Philippines, and Australia ranking as primary users behind the United States. The materials have been evaluated in relation to traditional textbook resources and have shown considerable advantages – student performance on a standard science comprehension instrument was significantly higher among the groups using these resources (Carpi & Mikhailova, 2003, Journal of College Science Teaching 23(1): 12).

Title: Teaching the Process of Science as a Means of Engaging Students in Chemistry
Event: American Chemical Society National Meeting
Grand Hyatt Hotel
Washington, D.C.
Presentation Date: August 16, 2009
Description: Chemistry, as with other scientific disciplines, is often derided as abstract and out-of-touch with the real world issues. This is likely due to the fact that traditional college courses present the subject as a system of discipline-specific facts to be memorized. A growing number of studies point to the effectiveness of explicitly teaching the nature and the process of science as a means of engaging undergraduates in the scientific endeavor (Moss et al., 2001; Bell et al., 2003). In 2006, we received a Comprehensive Grant from the Fund for Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) to develop a comprehensive series of materials that discuss the nature and practice of science. Topics in the series include: scientific theories, hypotheses, and laws; experimentation and other research methods; data analysis and interpretation; and the public perception of science. Over the past year we have begun to implement these materials in non-major and major courses in science and to assess the impact they have on student learning. This presentation will discuss the materials being developed in more detail and the results from our assessment of these materials.

Title: How Can States and Institutions Make Better Use of Cross-State and Interstate Academic Planning and Programming? Barriers, Incentives, and Benefits.
Event: State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) Higher Education Policy Conference
Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel
1550 Court Place
Denver, CO
Contact: (785) 532-3110
Presentation Date: August 11, 2009
Description: The emerging economy, as well as immediate budgetary constraints, requires academic planning and program development to involve multiple institutions. Many challenges facing higher education today could be more readily addressed with greater collaboration across institutions and states. For example: 1) Expanding access to specialized high-cost science and engineering fields, 2) Broadening and ensuring the quality of online education across institutions, and 3) Providing the leadership, administrative support, and financing for successful, multi-institutional degree programs. This workshop will draw on the experience and leadership of the Institute for Academic Alliances at Kansas State University in addressing such challenges. Presentations and discussions will provide state and institutional academic planners with cost-saving alternatives and quality-enhancing strategies. The Big 12 Engineering Consortium and Great Plains IDEA, both developed with generous support from FIPSE, will be presented as consortium models for participants to consider.

Title: Teaching the Process of Science
Event: Workshop on Teaching the Process of Science
The Science Education Resource Center (SERC) at Carleton College
Carleton College
Northfield, MN
Presentation Date: July 15, 2009
Description: As scientists, we have an intuitive feel for the process of science and understand its importance both in our work and in our lives in general. We're often unsatisfied with the representation of "the scientific method" in our schools and popular culture. We're angry when the nature of science is misrepresented. As faculty, we are in a position to change that. How do we teach the real nature and process of science more effectively and broadly? This event is a workshop focused on enhancing science teaching by integrating the process of science into live courses. This workshop will bring together college faculty and high school teachers from all STEM disciplines and educational researchers studying teaching and learning about the nature and process of science. Participants will examine existing research on misconceptions, share exemplary classroom and laboratory activities, and explore strategies for integrating the nature and process of science into courses. Participants will help to develop an online collection of resource and teaching materials related to the integration of process and content in the science classroom at all levels.
More Information: The public may attend if they are registered for the workshop.
