Student Views of Concept Mapping Use in Introductory Tertiary Biology Classes
Buntting, Cathy; Coll, Richard Kevin; Campbell, Alison
International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, v4 n4 p641-668 Dec 2006
Introductory tertiary level science classes (i.e., at the university or post-compulsory school level) including those for biology face increasing diversity in intake. Previous research has indicated university level teachers assume a certain level of prior knowledge which may or may not be possessed by such students. This report focuses on the use of concept mapping in introductory biology tutorial classes. The research findings suggest that the students found the use of concept mapping enjoyable and that it can enhance meaningful learning for topics that require students to link concepts.
