Enhancing Undergraduate Critical Reading Skills in Neuroscience Using Instructor-Developed Study Guides
Moraru, Andreea; LeBoutillier, Janelle C.
Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching, v2 n122-127 2009
This study proposes an innovative instructional method for enhancing critical reading skills. Students enrolled in an undergraduate neuroscience course offered at the University of Toronto Scarborough reported that they often experience difficulty in analyzing and interpreting empirical and review journal articles. Our research focuses on student attitudes and perceptions of learning following exposure to instructor-developed study aids based on course readings from various scientific journals. The results of this study can be translated across disciplines to courses that use journal articles as part of the reading requirements, and can further impact course development to better facilitate student learning.
