CREATE for STEM Conference Room, 115 Erickson Hall
Interested in an international course experience in STEM education? Graduate students in STEM education are cordially invited to attend an informational meeting to present the plan, content, costs, and logistics for the study abroad course in Israel.
This will be a 3-credit independent study for STEM Education graduate students that will take place at the Weizmann Institute in Israel for 2 weeks in May 2017.
StudioCode is the premiere Mac software package for the cataloging and research coding of classroom video, open interviews, and even such diverse fields as sports video. This session will be an introduction to StudioCode and its use for research video analysis in education and other disciplines. It is open to all members of the university community who may be interested in using modern video research tools in their work. CREATE is sponsoring this event as part of an effort to build and offer research capacity. Mike Anzalone from StudioCode will be leading the discussion.
Interested faculty and students at Michigan State University are invited to participate in a webinar today for the Network of Academic Programs in the Learning Sciences (NAPLeS), sponsored by the International Society of the Learning Sciences. The Network's mission is to support high quality Learning Sciences programs internationally.
This webinar will feature Marcia Linn from UCB who will be discussing inquiry learning.
Speaker: Trisha L. Vickrey, PhD, Post-doctoral Research Candidate for the Automated Analysis of Constructed Respones (AACR) Research Group
Multi-user virtual environments (MUVEs) are immersive, collaborative, and experiential, which can allow students to authentically construct meaning and knowledge from their experiences. Here, we present research on changes in student motivation during a two-week MUVE-based ecosystem science curriculum (EcoMUVE). Student motivation was surveyed at the beginning, middle and end of the curriculum. Student responses were analyzed to determine the extent to which student engagement was attributable to activities related to learning activities, such as collaboration and data collection, or to novelty, which we expected would be attenuated by increased exposure to the technology. Lunch for post-docs follows this presentation, see details below.
