Düsing, Katharina; Asshoff, Roman; Hammann, Marcus – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
This study investigates students' conceptions of the carbon cycle with regard to the components they believe to be relevant to the carbon cycle, how they interrelate these components, the ways in which they trace carbon atoms, and the different levels of biological organisation they consider when doing so. A total of 142 students aged 13-16 years…

Boeve-de Pauw, Jelle; Van Hoof, Jan; Van Petegem, Peter – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Educational field trips are common practice in environmental education and education for sustainable development, well recognised by researchers for their potential to achieve cognitive and affective educational outcomes. One of the factors that influences learning during field trips is their novelty. The current study focuses on the interplay…

Verran, Joanna; Redfern, James; Moravej, Haleh; Adebola, Yvonne – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
A series of events was developed to engage audiences in discussion around the importance of microorganisms in the production of fermented foods, particularly through tasting. The events were designed to attract different audiences: families attending a science museum; families in their community space; and adults in different informal eating…

Gould, Kevin S.; Gilbert, Amanda; Pike, Adrian J.; Menzies, Ignatius J. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Microscopy skills are critical for many aspects of biology, yet they are notoriously difficult to teach, especially to large classes. We trialled the use of widescreen monitors with touch-screen capability connected to compound microscopes in an introductory-level plant biology lab. Working in teams, students used the screens to interpret,…

Torkar, Gregor; Gnidovec, Tanja; Tunnicliffe, Sue Dale; Tomažic, Iztok – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Many children learn about and experience animals in the everyday environment where they live and attend school. One way to obtain information about children's understanding of concepts or phenomena is by using their drawings in combination with written responses or interviews. This study assesses how much Slovenian students 10-15 years old (in…

Stagg, Bethan C.; Verde, Michael F. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Scientific drawing and writing are critical to the development of observational and recording skills in biology. However, it is unclear how the process of drawing and writing contribute to the learning of plant taxonomy. In the present study, 41 adult botanical novices studied a suite of UK native plant species using two methods: labelled drawing…

Andic, Branko; Cvijeticanin, Stanko; Maricic, Mirjana; Steševic, Danijela – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
The aim of the research is to examine the contribution of applying author-generated dichotomous keys (digital key - DDK and print key - DPK) to the quality and durability of the knowledge of eighth grade students about the "Systematic and classifications of plants (Bryophyta, Pteridophyta, Gymnosperms and Angiosperms)", as compared to…

Collings, David A.; Gerrard, Juliet A.; Garrill, Ashley – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
While most studies concerning how Universities respond to crises are based on simulations, we describe how the University of Canterbury responded to a real crisis, a series of major seismic events that caused significant disruption in 2010/2011. We focus on a single, first-year undergraduate biology course in which we modified our teaching…

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…

Sirovina, Damir; Kovacevic, Goran – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Family planning, the prevention of unwanted pregnancy, and women's reproductive health are topics that have received close attention for decades. It would therefore be fair to assume that there exists a good knowledge of the menstrual cycle. However, it is clear that many people have various misconceptions about the menstrual cycle and fertile…

Veresoglou, Stavros D.; Rillig, Matthias C. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Because Journal Clubs (JClubs) represent valued educational tools, we often assume optimality of Journal Club practices. We analyze here JClubs records from a research group to identify factors that modify how much attendants benefit from discussing a paper. We demonstrate that attendants benefit most from papers focusing on systems similar to…

Borsos, Eva – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
This study presents a new technique, the "Which plant am I?" game, which helps to increase pupils' plant knowledge, while motivate them to become familiar with more plants. On the other hand pupils' plant knowledge was tested in Serbia. The "Which Plant Am I?" game was tested with two groups of pupils (in average 11 years old).…

Silva, Heslley M.; Peñaloza, Gonzalo; Tomasco, Ivanna H.; Carvalho, Graça S. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Despite scientific evidence suggesting close phylogenetic relationship between chimpanzees and humans, the inclusion of these apes in the genus "Homo" is controversial. Several tools have been used to analyse this issue such as fossils, molecular clock and genome. This work intended to understand the biology teachers' conceptions about…

Hadjichambis, Andreas Ch.; Georgiou, Yiannis; Paraskeva Hadjichambi, Demetra; Kyza, Eleni A.; Agesilaou, Andria; Mappouras, Demetrios – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Science education is an important dimension of the European Commission's Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) objectives; however, RRI is not an explicit focus of biology teaching and few biology teachers have experience in integrating RRI in classroom practice. This study examines the impact of a three 80-minute RRI and active citizenship…

Rodríguez Gil, Sergio Gustavo; Fradkin, Maia; Castañeda-Sortibrán, América Nitxin – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
We have designed and tested an exercise to detect misconceptions among students about meiosis, a fundamental concept in genetics. A total of 30 students responded to a questionnaire, all of whom were in the fifth semester of the Biology bachelor's degree program offered by the Faculty of Science of the National Autonomous University of Mexico. Our…
