Lin, Show-Yu; Lin, Chen-Yung; Hsin, Ming-Chin – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Visual representations are a familiar element of daily life and particularly beneficial as illustrations in science textbooks. In this case, learners draw on human dimensions such as cognitive style (CS) and prior knowledge (PK) when engaging in visual thinking. This study aimed to compare and explore the relationships among the format aspect…

Günter, Tugçe; Demir, F. Ebru Ofluoglu – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
This study investigates the impact of the Case-Based Learning (CBL) method for the topic of 'B6, B9 and B12 Vitamins' on students' academic achievement in a biochemistry course for an associate degree level in health. To this end, a case study with the title 'The Reasons for Depression: Do We Know What They Are?' was developed and implemented. The…

King-Heiden, Tisha C.; Litster, Megan – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
The impact of evolutionary processes in understanding human health and disease is an important idea for future health professionals to understand. These students, however, typically receive little to no formal instruction in the role of evolution in not only understanding human health, but its impact on how to treat human diseases. To address this…

Fernández Fernández, María del Mar; Jiménez Tejada, María Pilar – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
The cell is a key concept, and accurate knowledge of it is essential for understanding many phenomena and biological processes, as well as the overall functioning of living beings. However, learning about this concept is not simple. Regarding this concept, we examined the views concerning problems that could be encountered by Master's students…

Kumandas, Bahar; Ateskan, Armagan; Lane, Jennie – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Teachers need to be aware of biology misconceptions in their classrooms and how to address them. In response, researchers and science educators have suggested and examined effective practices to prevent and ameliorate misconceptions. An extensive review of the literature gives researchers and educators insights into trends, practices, and gaps in…

Borchardt, Rachel; Salcedo, Tovah; Bentley, Meg – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Information literacy refers to a set of skills that allow its user to find appropriate resources and use them to develop, define and defend arguments. In many undergraduate programms, including biology and STEM related fields, students are expected to utilise these skills in writing lab reports, paper analyses, and in developing testable…

Borsos, Eva; Patocskai, Maria; Boric, Edita – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Elementary school children spend less and less time outdoors in nature. In this way they will neither become familiar with plants and animals in their environment, nor will their environmental awareness develop. The solution for them would be to spend more quality time outdoors. In this work 170 teachers from Hungary and 170 teachers from Serbia…

Ferrés Gurt, Concepció; Marbà Tallada, Anna – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
This case study describes a classroom-based questionnaire that was carried out with a group of 36 high school students (17-18 years old) in Catalonia. The aim was to examine the usefulness of questionnaires focused on scientific inquiry, both to evaluate students' inquiry abilities and for their potential as tools to improve the understanding of…

Harper, Lynsey R.; Downie, J. Roger; Muir, Martin; White, Stewart A. – Journal of Biological Education, 2017
The benefits of field courses for biological science students are well established, but field courses also have limitations: they are generally too brief to allow significant research and they are staff-designed and led, limiting the development of student autonomy. In contrast, the value of student-organised field expeditions has been little…

Lee, Hung-Shan; Liu, Shiang-Yao; Yeh, Ting-Kuang – Journal of Biological Education, 2016
This study was designed to exemplify how hands-on based teaching strategies enhanced students' knowledge and positive attitudes towards sharks. Hands-on activities for sharks' biological and morphological features were carried out. Eleven elementary school students from a remote area in Taiwan were recruited and assigned to the hands-on condition.…

Kubisch, Franziska; Heyne, Thomas – Journal of Biological Education, 2016
At the botanical garden of the University of Würzburg, we conducted practical lessons on bionics, focused on the lotus effect, with 260 students. Those approx. 14 years old, 8th-grade mid-level students were divided into two groups. During an instructional discussion about the topic, one group was confronted with their alternative conceptions…

Cofré, Hernán; Jiménez, Juan; Santibáñez, David; Vergara, Claudia – Journal of Biological Education, 2016
Despite the importance of the theory of evolution to scientific knowledge, a number of misconceptions continue to be found among teachers and undergraduate students. The aim of the present study was to describe and characterise knowledge about evolution among 120 freshman undergraduate students of two natural sciences programmes (environmental…

Fernando, James; Carlson, Bradley; LeBard, Timothy; McCarthy, Michael; Umali, Finianne; Ashton, Bryce; Rose, Ferrill F., Jr. – Journal of Biological Education, 2016
The dramatic decrease in the cost of sequencing a human genome is leading to an era in which a wide range of students will benefit from having an understanding of human genetic variation. Since over 90% of sequence variation between humans is in the form of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), a laboratory exercise has been devised in order to…

Alvarez Pérez, Eréndira; Ruiz Gutiérrez, Rosaura – Journal of Biological Education, 2016
We present quantitative results for the doctoral thesis of the first-named author of this article. The objective was to recommend and test a teaching proposal for core knowledge of evolutionary biology in secondary education. The focus of the study is "Problem cores in teaching". The "Weaving evolutionary thinking" teaching…
