Slominski, Tara; Grindberg, Sarah; Momsen, Jennifer – Advances in Physiology Education, 2019
Human Anatomy and Physiology (HAP) has long been recognized as a difficult course. A 2007 study (Michael J. "Adv Physiol Educ" 31: 34-40, 2007) sought to better understand this difficulty by asking faculty for their perceptions of why students struggle to learn in HAP. Later research built on these findings by investigating why students…

Szuwarzynski, Andrzej – Higher Education Quarterly, 2019
This paper proposes a benefit of the doubt (BoD) approach to assess the research performance of 37 public Australian universities based on data from 2015. The primary activities of Higher Education institutions are teaching and research, but the prestige of a university depends mainly on the results of its research activities. The BoD method is…

Leden, Lotta; Hansson, Lena – Research in Science Education, 2019
The inclusion of "nature of science" (NOS) in science education has for a long time been regarded as crucial. There is, however, a lack of research on appropriate NOS aspects for different educational levels. An even more neglected area of research is that focusing on teachers' perspectives on NOS teaching at different levels. The aim of…
