Facilitating Instructor Adoption of Inquiry-Based Learning in College Mathematics

Faculty development workshops are one strategy for increasing instructor use of evidence-based teaching practices that are known to improve student outcomes in mathematics and other STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines. Yet relatively little is known about the impact of professional development on teaching practice in higher education. We report...

Carbonate Sedimentology - University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

The data set of interest in this data curation profile comes from the study of geobiology to analyze the impact of microbial activity on carbonization. The researcher gathers the data from hot springs and coral reef locations. The data management needs center around the ability to link together the data, which consists of Excel spreadsheets, annotated photos and microscopy images...

Bio-Mechanics Motion Studies - University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

The scientist interviewed for this data curation profiles is conducting interdisciplinary research on movement and balance. Specifically, he is focusing on movement analysis of groups that include special populations (i.e., people with injury or disability) people with typical development (i.e., without injury). The data management needs center around the need for infrastructure...

Soil Ecology - University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

The data set presented in this data curation profile comes from the field of soil science. The researcher studies soil ecology and organic matter, more specifically, sustainable agriculture and understanding the impact of various treatments on soil fertility. The data management needs involve making the data available in multiple formats, preserving the data indefinitely, and...

Atmospheric Modeling - University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

The research addressed in this data curation profile is the study of the impact of the relative location of storms, in combination with other parameters, on subsequent weather development. He uses computational modeling to produce simulations of severe weather and the interaction of storms. The goal is to develop predictive models for severe weather activity. The data management...
