Dansereau, David; Carmichael, L. E.; Hotson, Brian – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
An important foundational skill developed in an undergraduate science program is the ability to find, critically evaluate, and communicate scientific information. Effective science communication depends on good writing; therefore, we leveraged student support services offered by the Writing Centre and Academic Communications, in conjunction with…

Weiss, David J.; McGuire, Patrick; Clouse, Wendi; Sandoval, Raphael – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
Studies on the effectiveness of clickers in undergraduate chemistry courses are mixed, and there is disagreement on how to effectively leverage clickers to improve student learning performance. To fill a gap in the research, we analyzed three different teaching strategies (two involving clickers) in a General Chemistry I course over a 13-year time…

Moore, Virginia J.; Prewitt, Elizabeth Mitchell; Carpenter-McCullough, Amber Jean; Whitworth, Brooke A. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
With an overwhelming amount of research and a demand for collaborative learning in the classroom, teachers are tackling challenges at all educational levels that often accompany the social aspects of group work. Team-Based Learning (TBL) is an instructional sequence that shifts instruction from teacher lecture to small-group learning. Through the…

Beckerson, William C.; Anderson, Jennifer O.; Perpich, John D.; Yoder-Himes, Debbie – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
With calls to reassess higher education teaching methods, active learning practices have quickly become a popular alternative to traditional lectures, especially in STEM courses that traditionally rely heavily on large-lecture formats. In this regard, active learning environments stand to better prepare students for life after college; however,…

Stover, Shawn; Mabry, Michelle – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
Social media platforms and other internet sites may propagate inaccurate or misleading information. This misinformation encourages speculation, rumors, and mistrust in established science. In the current study, we attempted to determine whether biology and environmental science students at a small college are able to transfer their critical…

Smith-Peavler, Emily; Gardner, Grant E.; Otter, Ryan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Visual representations of physical and natural phenomena are important components of the teaching and learning of biology. In current undergraduate biology classrooms, visual representations are most often provided to students on PowerPoint slides. This study focuses on the use of, and perceptions about, PowerPoint in undergraduate introductory…

Brigati, Jennifer; England, Benjamin J.; Schussler, Elisabeth – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
In response to STEM education reform efforts, many instructors have incorporated active learning into their courses. However, the relationship between instructor justification to students about the use of active learning and student perception of why instructors use active learning is largely unknown. To investigate instructor active learning…

Huffmyer, Ariana S.; Lemus, Judith D. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Student experience and achievement in undergraduate science courses is important for degree retention and generating interest in careers in STEM. Graduate student teaching assistants (GTAs) provide a majority of instruction in STEM laboratory courses at universities and play a critical role in the educational experience of students. Many GTAs…

Pawloski, Jamie; Shabram, Patrick – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Community colleges enroll almost half of U.S. undergraduates and were predicted to produce 12% of the workforce for STEM professions in 2018. Half of these students are the first in their families to attend college and therefore are more likely unfamiliar with the steps required to transfer to four-year universities or internship programs.…

Moy, Magdalene K.; Hammrich, Penny L.; Kabnick, Karen – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
As undergraduate institutions rely more heavily on teaching assistants (TAs) they are simultaneously encouraging implementation of course-based research experiences (CBREs). Due to the dynamic nature of CBREs, it is challenging to assign novice TAs to instruct these types of classes. A 10-week CBRE was designed to guide both TAs and their students…

Kaya, Erdogan; Newley, Anna; Yesilyurt, Esgi; Deniz, Hasan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
The Framework for K-12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) underscore the importance of including engineering design process (EDP) within the science curriculum. The Framework and the NGSS raised engineering design to the level of scientific inquiry in an attempt to prepare a STEM-literate workforce for the 21st…

Co, Elizabeth – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Critical thinking skills are sought after in the workforce and are often included in course, departmental, and programmatic learning objectives. However, in the curriculum of many courses we tend to focus on content rather than on fostering the growth of the cognitive skills needed to improve critical thinking ability. Further, skills are…

Radlof, Jeffrey D.; Guzey, Selcen; Eichinger, David; Capobianco, Brenda M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
This study examines the initial integration of engineering design in an introductory preservice elementary biology content course using a life science design task focused on composting. The task, informed by a three-dimensional learning approach, required preservice teachers to research and model the process and use of composting to help the…

Chavarga, Alla; Grandoit, Evan; Mayer, Shoshana; Elbulok-Charcape, Milushka; Domzalski, Alison C.; Horowitz, Gail; Rosales, Edith; Hackman, Natasha – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
This article describes a quasi-experimental study conducted in two Organic Chemistry I classrooms at a diverse, urban, public university. The treatment group received an exam wrapper intervention, a series of four written exercises administered throughout the semester designed to enhance students' academic self-regulation by promoting…

Brown, Michael; DeMonbrun, Robert – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Although peer interaction in the college classroom may benefit some students by developing peer networks for future collaborations, prior research has suggested that these relationships most often benefit students from overrepresented communities, while minoritized student populations may gain less from these experiences. In this article, we…
