Prud'homme-Généreux, Annie; Gibson, J. Phil; Csikari, Melissa – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
"Cases are stories with a message. They are not simply narratives for entertainment. They are stories to educate" (Herreid, 1997, p. 92). By this definition, a case study is two things: a story and a strategy to drive learning. Although the story typically comes from a narrative purposefully written for the classroom, such as the case…

Price, Rebecca M.; Perez, Kathryn E. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Improving students' understanding of how science works requires explicit instruction. Here, we test the efficacy of a module based on two previously published activities (the "Cube Puzzle" and the case study "Asteroids and Dinosaurs") that teach how science works to college science majors. Students also use the How Science…

Gow, Joan-Beth; Carpino, Lisa A. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Anorexia nervosa is a complex behavioral disorder with the highest risk of death of any psychological disorder. Between 15% and 20% of those suffering from anorexia die from complications that are attributed either directly or indirectly to self-starvation. Heritability for anorexia is around 0.5, meaning about 50% of the risk for anorexia is…

Field, Patrick R.; Logan, Kelsey L. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The Game Changer is an interrupted case study that traces the football career of Anthony "Tony Tonka Truck" Williams and the types of brain trauma that he suffers from playing football, from junior league level through high school, college, and his draft into the pros. To be successful during this case, readers will have to be familiar…

Roberts, Jacqueline; Propsom, Pamela; Tobin, William – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
A small undergraduate liberal arts college explored a model, grounded in the literature, to develop a shared vision for its science and math general education curriculum that focuses on scientific literacy skills. This process has allowed us to produce shared general education learning goals across our eight science and math departments, conduct…

McLaughlin, Susan; Petersen, Joan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Many science educators have been incorporating the use of case studies into their teaching. An advantage of using minicase studies is that they can be used at any time throughout the semester to reinforce important topics covered without having to sacrifice a large amount of class time. In this article, the authors present a series of 10 mini-case…

Ferrara, Michael; Talbot, Robert; Mason, Hillary; Wee, Bryan; Rorrer, Ronald; Jacobson, Michael; Gallagher, Doug – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The need for a more robust, well-trained STEM workforce is becoming increasingly acute in the United States, and there is a clear need to recruit and retain a larger and more diverse population of undergraduate STEM majors. Although numerous efforts to improve engagement and support in the traditional P-16 classroom have been implemented…

Prince, Annabel N.; Pitts, Wesley B.; Parkin, David W. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
In this exploratory case study, we consider how students in an undergraduate biochemistry class engaged in the process of argumentation within an inquiry-oriented learning environment to investigate a chemical mechanism in a particular part of the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Audio/video recordings of student groups during the mechanism discussion…

Prud'homme-Généreux, Annie – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Misconceptions are sometimes called "alternative conceptions" in acknowledgement of the fact that although these concepts are inaccurate, they are congruent with prior experiences. The idea that misconceptions must be addressed to improve learning is helpful to remember when developing a case study. Students will bring their existing…

Prud'homme-Généreux, Annie; Schiller, Nancy A.; Wild, John H.; Herreid, Clyde Freeman – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Three years ago, the "National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science" (NCCSTS) was inspired to merge the case study and flipped classroom approaches. The resulting project aimed to create the materials required to teach a flipped course in introductory biology by assigning videos as homework and case studies in the classroom. Three…

Carloye, Lisa – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
In this article, the author introduces the usage of case studies to be an excellent method for engaging students through stories. The author notes she developed a series of mini-case studies that can be implemented, with a little advance preparation, within a 10- to 15-minute window during lecture. What makes them "mini" case studies?…

Herreid, Clyde Freeman – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
In this case study, the subject for discussion is the need to use teaching notes in order to add personality to case studies. Personality, it is said, is more important than policy, than demographics, than finances, or amorous peccadillos. Personality is essential. It is the interaction of people that capture our interest, yet, the question is…
