Learning about Cells as Dynamic Entities: An Inquiry-Driven Cell Culture Project
Palombi, Peggy Shadduck; Jagger, Kathleen Snell
Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, v34 n2 p27-33 Dec 2008
Using cultured fibroblast cells, undergraduate students explore cell division and the responses of cultured cells to a variety of environmental changes. The students learn new research techniques and carry out a self-designed experiment. Through this project, students enhance their creative approach to scientific inquiry, learn time-management and group interaction skills, and communicate their ideas and results in written and oral form. A Likert scale pre/post assessment was administered for three semesters to determine changes in student attitudes. (Contains 2 tables.)
