Applying a Fidelity of Implementation Framework to your Geoscience Education Research

Thursday 1:30pm-4:00pm
Afternoon Mini Workshop


Larry Collins, Longwood University

Fidelity of Implementation is a framework that has been studied in other disciplines such as healthcare. While DBER scholars are interested in conducting research on active learning strategies, we want to recognize that these interventions are not always adopted with fidelity by a practitioner. In this workshop, we will learn how to conduct research using this framework in order to identify the critical components of an active learning strategy as an effort to understand how and under what conditions learning is supported. This workshop is intended for an audience that has at least basic level knowledge of Geoscience Education Research.
