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…

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…

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…

Dirrigl, Frank J.; Noe, Mark – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Teaching scientific writing in biology classes is challenging for both teachers and students. This article offers and reviews several useful 'toolkit' items that instructors of science writing can use to improve college student success. The tools in this kit are both conceptual and practical, and include: (1) Understanding the role of student…

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…

Ragazzini, Gregorio; Mescola, Andrea; Corsi, Lorenzo; Alessandrini, Andrea – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
In recent years the possibility of observing by microscopy the dynamic activity of living cells has been largely pursued. We have developed a low-cost (~ 260 euros) on-stage cell incubator for inverted optical microscopes. This device allows to keep cells in good conditions for their survival and proliferation. The device is based on the use of…

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…

Pierce, Amanda A.; de Man, Tom J. B. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
The evolution of resistance to antibiotics provides a timely and relevant topic for teaching undergraduate students evolutionary biology. Here, we present a module incorporating modified sequencing data from eight antibiotic resistant pathogen outbreaks in hospital settings with bioinformatics and phylogenetic analyses. This module uses whole…

Asmus, Stephen E.; Batey, Kaylind G.; Gale-Butto, Serena N.; Schmitt, Barrie L. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
Cell migration, a fundamental process in development, wound healing, and immune function, is a common topic in undergraduate cell biology courses. We developed laboratory exercises with an inquiry-based learning (IBL) approach in which cell migration could be examined with the scratch assay, adapted from the primary literature. A narrow scratch…

Wyner, Yael; Blatt, Erica – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
This study used sociocultural learning theory to better understand how middle and high school environmental science and biology students and pre- and in-service science teachers connect the daily life activity of eating to the food web model learned in school. We sought to understand how student and teacher perceptions of the environment and their…

Marshall, Pamela A. – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
In the world of higher education, one of the struggles instructors face in the classroom is engaging students in the material. A second discussion in higher education pedagogy is how to weigh content versus activity in the science classroom. How should college teaching be set up when students now have every fact ever found at their fingertips on a…

de Cavalho, Julio Cesar Queiroz; Beltramini, Leila Maria; Bossolan, Nelma Regina Segnini – Journal of Biological Education, 2019
The present work aimed to investigate the contribution of the board game 'Synthesizing Proteins' to the understanding of protein synthesis by high school students, based on the socio-interactionist theory of Vygotsky. Fifteen students (six from a public school and nine from a private school) participated in the research, which had three stages:…
