Stieff, Mike; Scopelitis, Stephanie; Lira, Matthew E.; DeSutter, Dane – Science Education, 2016
Representational competence is a primary contributor to student learning in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines and an optimal target for instruction at all educational levels. We describe the design and implementation of a learning activity that uses concrete models to improve students' representational competence and…

Thompson, Kristjan L.; Gendreau, Julian L.; Strickling, Jarred E.; Young, Henry E. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Mercer University School of Medicine utilizes a problem-based learning (PBL) curriculum for educating medical students in the basic clinical sciences. In 2014, an adjustment was piloted that enabled PBL cases to align with their corresponding cadaver dissection that reviewed the content of anatomy contained in the PBL cases. Faculty had the option…

Rittinger, Eric R. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2020
A growing literature highlights the benefits of playing the classic board game Diplomacy in international relations (IR) courses. But how exactly can it help students to learn not only about different IR theories, but also about what it means to "use" a theory in the first place? To address this question, I highlight my experiences…

Kind, Vanessa; Chan, Kennedy K. H. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper concludes the Special Issue (SI) 'Probing the Amalgam: the relationship between science teachers' content, pedagogical and pedagogical content knowledge'. We review the five papers (Sorge et al; Gess-Newsome et al; Kind; Pitjeng-Mosabala and Rollnick; and Liepertz and Bronowski) by discussing evidence these present regarding the…

Ossenberg, Christine; Henderson, Amanda; Mitchell, Marion – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2019
There has been an observed increase in literature concerning feedback within the last decade, with the importance of feedback well documented. Current discourse promotes feedback as an interactive, dialogic process between the learner and the learning partner. While much has been written about effective feedback, less is known about key elements…

Combes, Nathan J. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2019
In the summer of 2015, I conducted a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) experiment in my quantitative methods for political science class. The experiment tested if, during instruction, asking conceptual questions improved student learning more than asking recall questions. This article provides evidence that instruction with conceptual…

Allchin, Douglas; Andersen, Hanne Moller; Nielsen, Keld – Science Education, 2014
Research has now demonstrated that students can learn nature of science concepts variously through student-led investigations, contemporary cases, and historical cases. Here we articulate more precisely the merits, deficits, and context of each approach and begin to profile how to integrate them as complementary methods. Emphasis now needs to…

Labouta, Hagar Ibrahim; Adams, Jennifer Dawn; Cramb, David Thomas – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In this paper we reflect on the article "I am smart enough to study postsecondary science: a critical discourse analysis of latecomers' identity construction in an online forum", by Phoebe Jackson and Gale Seiler (Cult Stud Sci Educ. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11422-017-9818-0). In their article, the authors did a significant amount of…

Brame, Cynthia J. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2016
Educational videos have become an important part of higher education, providing an important content-delivery tool in many flipped, blended, and online classes. Effective use of video as an educational tool is enhanced when instructors consider three elements: how to manage cognitive load of the video; how to maximize student engagement with the…

McCauley, Renée; Grissom, Scott; Fitzgerald, Sue; Murphy, Laurie – Computer Science Education, 2015
Hundreds of articles have been published on the topics of teaching and learning recursion, yet fewer than 50 of them have published research results. This article surveys the computing education research literature and presents findings on challenges students encounter in learning recursion, mental models students develop as they learn recursion,…

Brooks, William S.; Woodley, Kristina T. C. Panizzi; Jackson, James R.; Hoesley, Craig J. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2015
The University of Alabama School of Medicine (UASOM) instituted a fully integrated, organ system-based preclinical curriculum in 2007. Gross anatomy and embryology were integrated with other basic science disciplines throughout the first two years of undergraduate medical education. Here we describe the methods of instruction and integration of…

Richards, Ted – Science & Education, 2012
This paper describes a method for teaching planetary retrograde motion, and the Ptolemaic and Copernican accounts of retrograde motion, by means of a series kinesthetic learning activities (KLAs). In the KLAs described, the students literally walk through the motions of the planets in both systems. A retrospective statistical analysis shows that…

Vieira, Camilo; Magana, Alejandra J.; García, R. Edwin; Jana, Aniruddha; Krafcik, Matthew – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
Computational tools and methods have permeated multiple science and engineering disciplines, because they enable scientists and engineers to process large amounts of data, represent abstract phenomena, and to model and simulate complex concepts. In order to prepare future engineers with the ability to use computational tools in the context of…

Ellerbrock, Cheryl R.; Main, Katherine; Falbe, Kristina N.; Franz, Dana Pomykal – Education Sciences, 2018
The middle school concept, aimed at creating a more developmentally responsive learning environment for young adolescents, gained a stronghold in the later part of the 20th century. Proponents of this concept have argued continually for the holistic implementation of its six key characteristics if its benefits are to be realized. These…

Rinfret, Sara R.; Pautz, Michelle C. – Journal of Political Science Education, 2015
In an effort to help students better understand the complexity of making environmental policy and the role of policy actors in this process, we developed a mock congressional hearing simulation. In this congressional hearing, students in two environmental policy courses take on the roles of members of Congress and various interest groups to…
