Sep 15, 2021 PDF Document Vignette--Simulating International Climate Negotiations in Classrooms - SPUR
A simulation of the international climate negotiations was designed for more than 50 students of political science and other study programs dealing with sustainability. A key advantage of such simulations is that they are highly adaptable to groups of different sizes, academic backgrounds, or learning levels and can be used to teach a number of major concepts within the same framework.. the primary objective of such simulations is that students grasp the difficulties to achieve collective action

Sep 15, 2021 PDF Document Vignette--Researching Global Climate Change Challenges to Solve Local Issues with Undergraduate Research and Physical Models - SPUR
From 2012 through 2020, students in an introductory environmental engineering course have used a service-learning project to research climate resilience challenges and solutions. Issues of local significance exacerbated by climate change are connected to global concerns in three to four sessions of the three-hour laboratory portion of the course. The research is reported in briefs, reports, or conversational blogs.

Sep 15, 2021 PDF Document Vignette--Developing Multiple Literacies and Foundational Research Skills in Students through Audio Narratives on Global Warming Solutions - SPUR
The introductory course at Penn State Brandywine--Earth in the Future: Predicting Climate Change and Its Impacts Over the Next Century--utilizes a scaffolded instructional approach and faculty from several campus units to develop multiple literacies (information, digital, science) and professional skills (writing and speaking) in students. The audio narrative assignment has provided additional outcomes beyond improved knowledge in climate science.

Sep 15, 2021 PDF Document Vignette--The Use of Model Intercomparison Projects in Engaging Undergraduates in Climate Change Research - SPUR
To improve model performance and study climate change impacts across physical, biological, and social systems, model intercomparison projects (MIPs) are regularly conducted. MIPs represent a crucial tool for undergraduate researchers to meaningfully contribute to climate change research.

Sep 15, 2021 PDF Document Book Review--A Guide to Course-Based Undergraduate Research: Developing and Implementing CUREs in the Natural Sciences - SPUR
Reviewed by Gita Bangera. Erin L. Dolan (University of Georgia) and Gabriela C. Weaver (University of Massachusetts Amherst) have set out on an ambitious venture to create a comprehensive guide to course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) in the natural sciences. Their goal is to support faculty, and to some extent administrators, who would like to develop and implement CUREs as a pedagogical tool in higher education.

Sep 15, 2021 PDF Document Undergraduate Research Abroad: Shared Themes in Student Learning from Two Models of Course-Embedded Undergraduate Research in Field Biology Study Abroad Courses - SPUR
The authors present student self-reported learning gains from two undergraduate courses that embed research within study abroad courses. Students in one course worked in small groups on original research projects; students in the second course collectively contributed to one ongoing, professional research project. Differences in student learning between courses raise questions about the relationship of course structures to high-impact practices.

Sep 15, 2021 PDF Document Positioning Humanity before Progress: Students’ and Mentors’ Perceptions of the COVID-19 Impact on Undergraduate Research - SPUR
Through interviews with 28 students and 17 mentors from a campus-wide undergraduate research program, common themes in the responses to COVID-19-related impacts were found. Students had to adjust to the type or scope of their research obligations while handling academic responsibilities, and mentors explicitly considered students’ well-being above expectations related to research.

Sep 15, 2021 PDF Document Engaging the Youth Environmental Alliance in Higher Education to Achieve the Sustainable Development Goals - SPUR
The authors present a new approach to show how interdisciplinary collaborations among a group of institutions can provide a unique opportunity for students to engage across the science-policy nexus using the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Through collaboration across seven higher education institutions in the United States and Australia, virtual student research teams worked together across disciplines.

Sep 13, 2021 EPUB Document Re-evaluating Passive Research Involvement in the Undergraduate Curriculum--EPub - International Perspectives, SPUR
EPub version. In recent years, advocates for research-based education have publicized many examples of passive research involvement, defined as undergraduates learning about the content and lived experience of research at their institution. But the qualitative dimensions of passive research involvement remain unknown. The results show a range of experiences in student learning about faculty research.
