Stanisavljevic, Jelena; Djuric, Dragan – Journal of Biological Education, 2013
The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness of models of programmed instruction and conventional (informative-illustrative) expository teaching in terms of fulfilling the aims of the course "Human anatomy and physiology" which is included in the physiology programme and designed for undergraduate students majoring in biology…

Zhang, Xiaorong – Journal of Biological Education, 2012
A phylogenetics exercise is incorporated into the "Introduction to biocomputing" course, a junior-level course at Savannah State University. This exercise is designed to help students learn important concepts and practical skills in molecular phylogenetics through solving a real-world problem. In this application, students are required to identify…

Ondrej, Vladan; Dvorak, Petr – Journal of Biological Education, 2012
Bioinformatics, biological databases, and the worldwide use of computers have accelerated biological research in many fields, such as evolutionary biology. Here, we describe a primer of nucleotide sequence management and the construction of a phylogenetic tree with two examples; the two selected are from completely different groups of organisms:…

McCabe, Bernadette – Journal of Biological Education, 2011
The ability to appreciate the inter-connectedness of complex biological relationships can be difficult for many students. Graphical knowledge in the form of concept maps and flow charts are learning tools which can assist students to recognise the inter-connectivity. This report focuses on a trial which incorporates these two related visual…

Hawcroft, David – Journal of Biological Education, 2007
It is common to find students believing that they have a high skill level in computer use yet this does not normally include proficiency in the use of computer packages for data presentation. This exercise develops team work in data collection, requires the production of a simple spreadsheet, and the exporting of the data from that into one or…

Carlton, Kevin; Nicholls, Mike; Ponsonby, David – Journal of Biological Education, 2004
Some aspects of biology, for example the Hardy-Weinberg simulation of population genetics or modelling heat flow in lizards, have an undeniable mathematical basis. Students can find the level of mathematical skill required to deal with such concepts to be an insurmountable hurdle to understanding. If not used effectively, spreadsheet models…

Franklin, Sue; Peat, Mary; Lewis, Alison – Journal of Biological Education, 2002
Describes a study that investigates both the use and usefulness of laboratory dissections and computer-based dissections in a tertiary, first-year human biology course. Explores attitudes toward dissection. (DDR)

Predavec, Martin – Journal of Biological Education, 2001
Presents a study that used computer-based rat anatomy to compare student learning outcomes from computer-based instruction with a conventional dissection. Indicates that there was a significant relationship between the time spent on both classes and the marks gained. Shows that computer-based instruction can be a viable alternative to the use of…

Sneddon, Jenny; Settle, Chris; Triggs, Graham – Journal of Biological Education, 2001
Reports the results of a study that explored student pass rate by focusing on the effect of combination multimedia/workshop teaching in small groups, reduced practical assessment with opportunity for informed improvement, and continual theoretical assessment via phase testing. (Contains 19 references.) (Author/DDR)

Rea, J. G.; Irwin, S. W. B. – Journal of Biological Education, 2001
Recommends a number of investigations using video-capture and two readily available, non-pathogenic larval Digeneans with contrasting life cycles and behavior. The activities support the hypothesis that parasites exhibit behavior that increases their chances of a host infection. (DDR)

Marchaim, Uri – Journal of Biological Education, 2001
Presents the achievements of a program at a research and development institute in Israel where researchers in biology, biotechnology, agriculture, and chemistry supervised talented high-school students in performing research work. Reports that an important part of the program is to familiarize students with the Internet and related technology…

Lutterschmidt, William I.; Schaefer, Jacob F. – Journal of Biological Education, 1997
Discusses a computer simulation designed as an educational tool for students to observe predator-prey oscillations and experimentally investigate how changes in life histories affect predator and prey densities. Provides hands-on interaction with such theories and with mathematical models. Available to any instructor for curriculum use. (AIM)
