Duban, Nil – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2019
Museums provide the opportunity to handle real objects, solve problems, and interact with others. And also they are perfect places to ask our own questions, and try to discover the answer. So in many courses, teachers use museums as a learning environment for teaching the subject matter. The purpose of this research is to determine the opinions of…

Cicuto, Camila; Pazinato, Maurícius; Torres, Bayardo – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Scientific articles have been explored as a didactic resource in the teaching of Biochemistry, as well as in other areas of science. This teaching strategy contributes to the learning and understanding of specific concepts, and development of the skills, necessary for the research training of students. The present study investigated the use of…

Shortlidge, Erin E.; Rain-Griffith, Liz; Shelby, Chloe; Shusterman, Gwendolyn P.; Barbera, Jack – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
Embedding active learning is a common mechanism for meeting science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education reform goals. Researchers have identified student benefits from such strategies, yet these benefits may not be universal for all students. We sought to identify how students at a nontraditional university perceive…

Lee, Star W. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
There has been little attention given to teaching beliefs of graduate teaching assistants (GTAs), even though they represent the primary teaching workforce for undergraduate students in discussion and laboratory sections at many research universities. Secondary school education studies have shown that teaching beliefs are malleable and can be…

Ferraro, Giovanni; Fratini, Emiliano – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A procedure for one-pot preparation and characterization of silver 1D nanostructures is described. The main advantages of this synthetic approach are the simplicity and reproducibility, where the size of the final product can be controlled just by changing the reaction time. This experiment is designed as a laboratory introduction to colloidal…

Yoon, Jiyoon, Ed.; Semingson, Peggy, Ed. – IGI Global, 2019
As more classes move to online instruction, there is a need for research that shows the effectiveness of synchronous learning. Educators must guide students on how to use these new learning tools and become aware of the research trends and opportunities within these developing online and hybrid courses. "Educational Technology and Resources…

Torío, Herena – Journal of Technology and Science Education, 2019
The role of faculty in higher education as knowledge disseminators within the knowledge and digital society can be completely redefined. This paper presents results from a video-based flipped classroom approach combined with a project-oriented learning arrangement. I show that videos combined with a project-based learning setting can be a powerful…
