Farah, Kimberly S.; Montepare, Joann M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Our population is aging, calling for communities to be more age friendly and younger individuals to be more aware of aging issues that will impact their personal and professional lives. However, colleges provide few opportunities for students to prepare themselves for a more age-diverse world. Drawing on a new general education core curriculum…

Wood, Philip Matchett; Bhute, Vijesh – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Online software systems are extensively used to give students practice on course content, especially in mathematics and physics courses. They offer instant feedback, and several of these systems are open source or very economical compared with hiring graders for traditional paper-and-pencil-based homework (PPH). In this article, the authors…

Klemm, W. R. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Instead of flipping a conventional college course, here we consider flipping part of a conventional course into a whole new course. The idea tested here for three semesters was to split a full-featured traditional course into two linked courses: a condensed, 1-credit-hour, online mass-enrollment course on core ideas and skills paired with a…

Ellerton, Sharon; Carmona, Naydu; Tsimounis, Areti – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2016
There is an urgent need to increase K-12 science knowledge and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) preparedness for college. State and national data suggest a strong correlation between student performance in STEM subjects and student socioeconomic status, race, and ethnicity. Queensborough Community College (QCC) is situated…

King, Barbara – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2015
This study examines the within-field persistence rates of physical science/engineering (PS/E) students compared with those of students in life science, business, social science, education, and humanities. The data are drawn from a nationally representative sample of college matriculates and include students' high school and college transcript…

Vicens, Quentin; Caspersen, Michael E. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Despite extensive evidence in favor of student-centered teaching practices over traditional lecturing, most science faculty do not embrace these modes of instruction. Professional development efforts are plentiful, but they can lack in impact or scalability, or both. The factors that determine professional development quality within a research…

Metoyer, Sandra K.; Miller, Scott T.; Mount, Jennifer; Westmoreland, Sandra L. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Half of students who start college pursuing a degree in science drop out of the sciences by their senior year. This is due, in part, to low attendance and lack of preparation by the students. The failure to develop instructional strategies that actively engage students in science, however, is also a marked factor. A crucial need to reform how…

Pai, Aditi – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words. If a mere picture is worth a thousand words, how much more are "moving pictures" or videos worth? The author poses this not merely as a rhetorical question, but because she wishes to make a case for using videos in the traditional case study method. She recommends four main approaches of…

Allen, Casey D. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
The author makes a case for fieldwork as having a strong capacity for increasing both science and nonscience majors' abilities to learn complex concepts, with the added benefit of actively engaging minority and female students in science.

Kaiser, Bonnie Nicole; Mishler, Dennis M.; Peoples, Whitney A.; Wells, Alexis S. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
In this nascent age of massive online education, it is important to recognize that the goals and successes of a liberal arts education have been to provide an intellectual array of ideas that build critical thinking skills and to engage a new generation of students with society's great challenges and vast opportunities. Nowhere are these…

Herreid, Clyde Freeman; Schiller, Nancy A.; Herreid, Ky F.; Wright, Carolyn B. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
This article discusses the results of a survey that was posted for those who regularly peruse the website of the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science (NCCSTS). Faculty members were asked about their use of case studies and videos in their General Biology classrooms. The results are enlightening because General Biology is arguably the…
