Stringer, Elizabeth I.; Hendrix, Jasmine D.; Swortzel, Kirk A.; Williams, J. Byron; Schilling, M. Wes – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Historically, high school chemistry has been the predominate venue for the introduction of food science curriculum to students. With the current decline in chemistry as a required course for graduation, the possibility of exposure to food science in high school could equally decline. The purpose of this research was to determine if high school…

Zimmerman, Tahl; Ibrahim, Mariama; Gyawali, Rabin; Ibrahim, Salam A. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
This laboratory activity was designed to strengthen our Food and Nutritional Science students' knowledge of biochemistry concepts and the relationship between these concepts and food science. The result was a laboratory experience in which biochemistry concepts are taught using yogurt as a model, in order to link those concepts to food safety, an…

Lee, Yee Ming; Burnett, Donna – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Engaging undergraduate students in research has become increasingly important due to its potential benefits (for example, increased intention to pursue postgraduate study and enhanced understanding of theoretical knowledge). This study investigated whether a comprehensive food science research project that was incorporated into the laboratory…

Bruna, Carola E.; Valenzuela, Nicole A.; Bruna, Daniela V.; Lozano-Rodríguez, Armando; Márquez, Carolina G. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Problem-based learning using authentic material from the web was used to teach metabolism in a biochemistry course. In place of traditional lectures, students' analyzed health or nutrition articles from newspapers and magazines, which were debatable from a scientific point of view, following the principles of problem-based learning. A mixed method…

Feng, Yaohua; Bruhn, Christine M.; Elder, Gary; Boyden, Dawn – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
High school students are a critical audience for food safety. Students may enter the foodservice industry or become primary meal preparers for their families. The positive deviance food safety curriculum was developed based on the messages from the Fight BAC! Campaign. The curriculum is designed for high school students to overcome barriers to…

Sumeracki, Megan A.; Weinstein-Jones, Yana; Nebel, Cynthia L.; Schmidt, Shelly J. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
For several decades, cognitive psychologists have been studying how we learn, and from this work it becomes possible to identify ways to help students learn in the classroom effectively. Importantly, this work does not just inform how to memorize facts, but also how to learn complex material in a way that allows students to apply what they are…

Crandall, Philip G.; Clark, Jeffrey A.; Shoulders, Catherine W.; Johnson, Donald M. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
The 2011 passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act requires managers to teach and verify that employees have learned and are engaged in science-based food safety behaviors. Instructors using embedded assessments such as clickers can receive immediate feedback on how well learners understand what is being taught, allowing instructors to provide…

Adriana, Lezama-Solano; Mauricio, Castro; Delores, Chambers; Loreida, Timberg; Kadri, Koppel; Edgar, Chambers, IV; Yu, Huizi – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Abstract A globalized world requires research to transcend geographical boundaries; this includes training students in international collaborative research. The purpose of this project was to identify the benefits, opportunities, and challenges of students from two universities (Kansas State Univ. and Tallin Univ. of Technology) working on an…

Schmidt, Shelly J. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Traditionally, cognition and emotion were believed to be independent systems; however, research in the cognitive and neurobiological sciences has shown that the relationship between cognition and emotion is both interdependent and extensive. This intimate connection between emotion and cognition is leading to a number of insights that have the…

Hendrich, Suzanne; Licklider, Barbara; Thompson, Katherine; Thompson, Janette; Haynes, Cynthia; Wiersema, Jan – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
A one-credit seminar on controversies in food science and human nutrition was a platform to introduce students to learning frameworks for thinking-like-a-scientist. We hypothesized that explicitly engaging students in thinking about their thinking abilities within these frameworks would enhance their self-perception of scientific thinking, an…

Ma, Sihui; Steger, Daniel G.; Doolittle, Peter E.; Stewart, Amanda C. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
Personal response systems, such as clickers, have been widely used to improve the effectiveness of teaching in various classroom settings. Although hand-held clicker response systems have been the subject of multiple prior studies, few studies have focused on the use of cell phone-based personal response system (CPPRS) specifically. This study…

Therrien, Mona; Calder, Beth L.; Castonguay, Zakkary J. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
Students in the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) at the University of Maine were exposed to the cheese-making process, within a lab setting of two hours, utilizing an accelerated recipe for a Queso Fresco-style cheese. The purpose of this project was to provide students with a novel, hands-on learning experience, which covered concepts of…

McLeod, Poppy Lauretta; Orta-Ramirez, Alicia – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
The relationship between past teamwork and task-related experiences, attitude toward teamwork, collective efficacy, and task performance among undergraduates (N = 298) assigned to group projects (N = 48) in 2 different Food Science courses was examined. The results of survey data collected at the beginning and end of the projects showed that past…

Rosa, Clarissa H.; Antelo, Francine; Rosa, Gilber R. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
A 4-week mini-project is proposed for an experimental Physical Chemistry course applied in Food Science training. Activities include preparation of beet extract for the extraction of betanins and analysis of the kinetics of betanins in thermal degradation at three temperatures (60, 70, and 80 ºC). In addition to developing common laboratory…

Stevenson, Clinton D.; Porter, Kinsey; Stevenson, Kathryn T. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
Understanding the role of food science education in developing undergraduate students' intentions to implement Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) may be a key strategy in developing the workforce's implementation of GMPs and other food safety programs. Previous research has demonstrated the effects of educational interventions on planned food…
