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…

Dahlberg, Caroline L.; Wiggins, Benjamin L.; Lee, Suzanne R.; Leaf, David S.; Lily, Leah S.; Jordt, Hannah; Johnson, Tiara J. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Reflection and recalibration, two key hallmarks of metacognition, are important elements of productive problem solving in scientific research. Often, training in these skills is obtained informally through direct exposure to independent research after college. Although some undergraduate students participate in extra- or co-curricular research…

Ruder, Suzanne M.; Stanford, Courtney; Gandhi, Anand – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Active learning classrooms provide an ideal opportunity to develop key workplace skills such as teamwork, information processing, critical thinking, and problem solving. Although many active learning pedagogies implicitly support student development of these skills, the role of the instructor in explicitly prompting and assessing these skills in…

Addis, Elizabeth A.; Powell-Coffman, Jo Anne – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The Association of American Colleges and Universities ranks multiple process of science (POS) skills among the top-10 skills employers seek in college graduates. As part of an effort to explore and align the emphasis on POS skills in our science departments, we sought three things: (a) to determine if faculty and students felt enough time was…

Phillips, Jeffrey A.; Clemmer, Katharine W.; McCallum, Jeremy E. B.; Zachariah, Thomas M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Well-developed, problem-solving skills are essential for any student enrolled in a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) course as well as for graduates in the workforce. One of the most essential skills is the ability to monitor one's own progress and understanding while solving a problem. Successful monitoring during the…

Fautch, Jessica M.; Foresman, James B. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Introductory science courses serve a population of students in the major (i.e., chemistry) as well as those students outside the discipline (i.e., premed, biology, engineering). In an effort to help this diverse population of students connect personally with the content of the course, we sought ways to include student-centered activities, provide…

Zare, Richard N.; Cox, Charles T., Jr.; Murphy, Katherine; Bayas, Camille – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
In large, introductory courses, instructors and teaching assistants often struggle to provide detailed feedback on student homework in a timely manner. Here we describe a peer-reviewed homework system that provides quick turnaround while offering flexibility in the construction of homework problems. Homework is administered through a cycle, which…

McDonnell, Lisa; Mullally, Martha – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2016
An essential component skill of monitoring and reflection during problem solving is work checking, a process used by experts while solving problems to determine if their solution is achieving the goal. The results of work checking may reveal errors or inconsistencies, indicating a need for iteration. Using think-aloud interviews, the authors…

Reed, Kelynne E.; Aiello, David P.; Barton, Lance F.; Gould, Stephanie L.; McCain, Karla S.; Richardson, John M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2016
This article discusses the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) Teaching and Research (STAR) Leadership Program, developed at Austin College, which engages students in activities integrated into undergraduate STEM courses that promote the development of leadership behaviors. Students focus on interpersonal communication,…

Lazarova, Krassi – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2015
Studying physics for nonphysics majors at college level is usually a process of learning new problem-solving skills and sometimes seems a frustrating experience. In an attempt to provide students with more learning resources, online homework was required to supplement the instruction. This study reveals the role of the online homework assignments…

Mandeville, David; Stoner, Mark – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2015
The aim of this study was to assess the effect of using the problem-based learning (PBL) teaching strategy on student academic achievement and secondary learning outcomes when compared with the traditional lecture (TL) for an undergraduate Biomechanics course. Successive undergraduate Biomechanics courses--a TL cohort and a PBL cohort--were…

Coleman, Jill S. M.; Mitchell, Melissa – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
This article describes the implementation of high-altitude balloon (HAB) research into a variety of undergraduate atmospheric science classes as a means of increasing active student engagement in real-world, problem-solving events. Because high-altitude balloons are capable of reaching heights of 80,000-100,000 ft (24-30 km), they provide a…

Gazdik, Michaela – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Cellular respiration, the central component of cellular metabolism, can be a difficult concept for many students to fully understand. In this interrupted, problem-based case study, students explore the purpose of cellular respiration as they play the role of medical examiner, analyzing autopsy evidence to determine the mysterious cause of death…

New technological developments have minimized training, hardware expense, and distribution problems for the production and use of instructional videos, and any science instructor can now make instructional videos for their classes. We created short "Khan style" videos for the topic of buffers in biochemistry and assigned them as…

Collins, Eva-Maria S.; Calhoun, Tessa R. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
This article presents the combination of three enhanced educational approaches for training future scientists. These methods incorporate skills generally not introduced in the freshman year: student-led blackboard introductions; the writing of scientific papers; and the design, execution, and presentation of an independent lab module. We tested…
