Richardson-Hatcher, April; MacPherson, Brian; Gould, Douglas; Brueckner-Collins, Jennifer – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2018
There are few graduate programs available for pursuing a doctorate in anatomy where students gain specific training in gross anatomy dissection and the responsibilities of a medical educator. In light of this fact, the University of Kentucky created a Graduate Certificate in Anatomical Sciences Instruction in 2006. This 12-credit hour curriculum…

Harrison, Colin; Tanner, Kimberly D. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2018
Language matters. What we say can have profound effects on an individual's sense of belonging, self-efficacy, and science identity. One of the ways that these biases can manifest is in our language, through the use of microaggressions. Here, the term "microaggressions" is used to describe brief, sometimes subtle, everyday exchanges that…

Gogolla, Martin; Stevens, Perdita – Computer Science Education, 2018
Teaching modeling in computer science is complicated. Many factors contribute, and are related in diverse ways. We regard some combinations as more successful than others, but we also value diversity, and we struggle to elucidate the relationships and our value structure. Similar remarks apply to the study of biological ecosystems. This…

Tedre, Matti; Simon; Malmi, Lauri – Computer Science Education, 2018
Computing education has been an important and sometimes contentious issue ever since the advent of modern computing. Debates about computing education have closely followed job markets, technological development, academic interests, societal concerns, and changes in the perception of computing. The themes in computing education debates can be…

López-Lozano, L.; Solís, E.; Azcárate, P. – Research in Science Education, 2018
Assessment is one of the key elements in the development of the curriculum since it forms a cycle of interdependence with the other curricular areas (content, methods, etc.). This work presents the changes detected in the conceptions about assessment in science that a sample of 311 prospective primary teachers had before and after a training…

Hetherington, Lindsay; Hardman, Mark; Noakes, Jill; Wegerif, Rupert – Studies in Science Education, 2018
Science is concerned with understanding the world. As such, engaging with the materiality of that world is integral to both empirical experimentation and theorising within science. However, it has been recognised for some time that the way scientists learn about the world and the way that young people learn about science cannot be simply equated.…

Donovan, Brian M. – Science Education, 2015
Even though human racial difference has been a longstanding topic of the school biology curriculum, there is little evidence that contemporary biology textbooks challenge stereotypical racial beliefs that are based in biological thinking. Rather, the modern biology curriculum may be a place where such beliefs about race are perpetuated…

Wilkenfeld, Daniel A.; Lombrozo, Tania – Science & Education, 2015
In pedagogical contexts and in everyday life, we often come to believe something because it would best explain the data. What is it about the explanatory endeavor that makes it essential to everyday learning and to scientific progress? There are at least two plausible answers. On one view, there is something special about having true…

Richmond, Marsha L. – Science & Education, 2015
After the rediscovery of Mendel's laws of heredity in 1900, the biologists who began studying heredity, variation, and evolution using the new Mendelian methodology--performing controlled hybrid crosses and statistically analyzing progeny to note the factorial basis of characters--made great progress. By 1910, the validity of Mendelism was…

Allen, Garland E. – Science & Education, 2015
Science textbooks and classes mostly emphasize what are considered by today's standards the "right" or "correct" interpretations of particular phenomena or processes. When "incorrect" ideas of the past are mentioned at all, it is simply to point out their errors, with little attention as to why the ideas were put…

Gillham, Nicholas W. – Science & Education, 2015
Francis Galton, Charles Darwin's cousin, had wide and varied interests. They ranged from exploration and travel writing to fingerprinting and the weather. After reading Darwin's "On the Origin of Species," Galton reached the conclusion that it should be possible to improve the human stock through selective breeding, as was the…

Smith, Mike U.; Gericke, Niklas M. – Science & Education, 2015
Mendel is an icon in the history of genetics and part of our common culture and modern biology instruction. The aim of this paper is to summarize the place of Mendel in the modern biology classroom. In the present article we will identify key issues that make Mendel relevant in the classroom today. First, we recount some of the historical…

Orel, Vítezslav; Peaslee, Margaret H. – Science & Education, 2015
This historical narrative describes the foundation of education as established by J. A. Comenius (1592-1670). It explores the transfer of Comenius' tenets, utilized and modified through the years, up to their impact upon the ground-breaking experiments of G. Mendel (1822-1884), "the father of genetics". It explores the questions of…

Brush, Stephen G. – Science & Education, 2015
In a famous 1960 paper, Wigner discussed "The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the Natural Sciences." I suggest that the effectiveness of mathematics in producing successful new theories and surprising discoveries is even more unreasonable than Wigner claimed. In this paper, I present several historical case studies to…

Matthews, Michael R. – Science & Education, 2015
These reflections range over some distinctive features of the journal "Science & Education," they acknowledge in a limited way the many individuals who over the past 25 years have contributed to the success and reputation of the journal, they chart the beginnings of the journal, and they dwell on a few central concerns--clear writing…
