Wenner, Julianne A.; Simmonds, Paul J. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
On graduation, teacher candidates (TCs) are typically underprepared to teach science, particularly physical science, whereas physics graduates frequently lack training in teaching or effective communication. In response, we created two models for interdisciplinary peer learning where TCs were paired with either graduate or undergraduate physics…

Finn, Kevin; FitzPatrick, Kathleen; Yan, Zi – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Students often struggle in introductory health sciences courses; some students have difficulty in upper level classes. To address this, we converted three lecture/lab courses, traditional first-year Anatomy and Physiology (A&P I), upper level Biomechanics, and upper level Microbiology to an integrated studio model. We used the Student…

Tawde, Mangala; Boccio, Dona; Kolack, Kevin – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Students arrive in college with significant prior knowledge including misconceptions that hinder their ability to learn new concepts correctly. Misconceptions, or "alternative beliefs," have been widely studied in the physical sciences at higher education institutions; however, there is a paucity of research concerning the community…

Agboola, Oluwaseun Omowunmi; Hiatt, Anna C. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Summative assessments are customarily used to evaluate ultimate student outcomes and typically occur less frequently during instruction than formative assessments. Few studies have examined how the use of summative assessments may influence student learning among at-risk groups of students. Summative assessments are typically used to evaluate how…

Whang-Sayson, Hannah; Daniel, Janice C.; Russell, Arlene A. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
We have discovered a new and formerly unstudied long-term impact of a system-wide research university program that provides opportunities for students to explore secondary school teaching as a potential career. Looking beyond teacher recruitment as the only assessment of success, we have investigated the impact of the program on those who explored…

Johnson, Staci Neas – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
The increase in classroom technology has resulted in the use of clickers and other audience response systems (ARS) for simultaneous reporting of choices in the teambased learning (TBL) classroom. A variety of techniques and practices using ARS technology in TBL courses has been noted. Learning gains in the TBL classroom with ARS reporting has not…

Cervato, Cinzia; Kerton, Charles – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
We describe the impact of a hybrid Earth and space science course, taught online and complemented by a 2-hour face-to-face lab, on the science teaching self-efficacy of elementary preservice teachers over a 3-year span. Guided by the two overarching objectives of engaging students in the content and increasing their comfort level with teaching…

Kaya, Erdogan; Newley, Anna; Deniz, Hasan; Yesilyurt, Ezgi; Newley, Patrick – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Engineering has become an important subject in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which have raised engineering design to the same level as scientific inquiry when teaching science disciplines at all levels. Therefore, preservice elementary teachers (PSTs) need to know how to integrate the engineering design process (EDP) into their…

Hodges, Linda C.; Anderson, Eric C.; Carpenter, Tara S.; Cui, Lili; Feeser, Elizabeth A.; Gierasch, Tiffany Malinky – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Clickers are often used as an active learning tool in face-to-face classes to enhance student engagement and assess student learning. In this article we share the variety of ways that we use clicker questions to promote deliberate practice in large science courses. Deliberate practice is the use of specifically structured exercises that develop…

Stephens, Jessica D.; Battle, David C.; Gormally, Cara L.; Brickman, Peggy – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Early training opportunities for future faculty, namely graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, can better prepare them to use active learning approaches. We know that instructional feedback supports sustained change and motivates instructors to improve teaching practices. Here, we incorporate feedback as a key component of a pedagogical…

Vaughn, Ashley R.; Robbins, Jennifer R. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Evolutionary theory is a central tenet of biological science, and it is essential for all science teachers, early childhood through secondary, to have a clear understanding of not only the science behind evolution, but also the legal precedents for teaching evolution in the classroom. This study examines the effectiveness of a curriculum on…

Walker, J. D.; Wassenberg, Deena; Franta, Gabriel; Cotner, Sehoya – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Certain scientific conclusions are controversial, in that they are rejected by a substantial proportion of nonscientists despite an overwhelming scientific consensus. Science educators are motivated to help students understand the evidence behind the scientific consensus on these matters and to move students' views into alignment with those held…
