Conceptual Change in the Undergraduate Biology Teaching Laboratory: A "Type Specimen" Case Study.
Jones, Dorothy A.; Eichinger, David C.
This paper introduces the biology laboratory as a learning project. Biology laboratories provide unique learning opportunities to students as traditional achievement outcome measures, and play an important role in the development of process skills, manual skills, and attitudes. However, there is insufficient data on undergraduate students majoring in biology. The biology laboratory learning project aims to provide detailed data on undergraduate biology students, their interactions with peers and teaching assistants, and their learning.
