Journal Club Winter 2015 Week 3

For Thursday, we will investigate some of the quantitative statistical methods used in analysis of DBER data. To prepare, please read Chapter 4: Quantitative Methods from Discipline-Based Education Research: A Scientist’s Guide, by S. J. Slater, T. F. Slater, and J. M. Bailey.

We have decided to select only a few chapters from the book to use in journal club this term, so we have not asked the bookstore to make another attempt to order it. Instead, please contact Julie Mueller or Heather Borland for a PDF copy of this week’s chapter.

For Friday, we will read contrasting accounts of using cell phones in class  Tessier, J. T. (2014). Eliminating the Textbook: Learning Science With Cell Phones. Journal of College Science Teaching44(2).
