Use of self-determination theory to support basic psychological needs of preservice science teachers in an environmental science course
Karaarslan, Guliz; Ertepinar, Hamide; Sungur, Semra (2013-06-01)
In this paper, we examine how the basic psychological needs of preservice science teachers (PSTs) were supported in a series of environmental science course activities informed by self-determination theory (SDT). We collected qualitative data about the PSTs' sense of competence, autonomy, and relatedness through interviews, group discussions, assignments, and reflection papers. Data were analyzed in relation to the instructional design features of the course; namely, collective construction of ideas, studen...

Use of Geospatial Queries for Optimum Drilling and Blasting Practices in Surface Mining
Erkayaoğlu, Mustafa (2018-11-22)
Increasing demand of the modern society for energy and raw material strengthens the role of mining in sustainable development. The basic production cycle of surface mining is initiated by drilling and blasting the material that will be loaded, hauled, and dumped by various mobile equipment. Performance measurement and analysis of all these production stages by the utilization of available technology is of crucial importance for continuous improvement of modern mine operations. Today, most of the mobile equi...
