Esselman, Brian J.; Block, Stephen B. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The VSEPR model has well-established limitations in its ability to represent accurate molecular and electronic geometries of simple molecules, which can create a significant need for students to relearn structure and bonding concepts in organic chemistry. We present an alternate method for describing molecular geometries and electronic structures…

Fisher, Robert J. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Our exponentially increasing knowledge base creates many new technology challenges. Academia must therefore respond emphatically. Educating rising professionals to successfully confront these future difficulties requires innovative curricula challenges. A successful adaptation integrates STEM program protocols into core courses. Embracing…

Wheeler, Lindsay B.; Chiu, Jennifer L.; Maeng, Jennifer L.; Bell, Randy L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Undergraduate science courses typically rely on teaching assistants (TAs) to teach introductory laboratory classes. However little research investigates how to support TAs to implement reform-based teaching in undergraduate settings, and in particular, what factors may influence TAs' motivation to teach within reform-based instructional contexts.…

DeCocq, Victoria; Bhattacharyya, Gautam – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
We report our qualitative study of twenty-four students enrolled in the second-semester of a second-year undergraduate (sophomore-level) organic chemistry course, Organic Two. We asked the research participants to propose the product and electron-pushing mechanism of elementary mechanistic steps in the absence and presence of the corresponding…

Liu, Qianxiu; Allard, Bradley; Lo, Patrick; Zhou, Qingshan; Jiany, Tianji; Itsumura, Hiroshi – College & Research Libraries, 2019
This study is based on the belief that inquiry-based learning should be made an integral part of any student's learning, especially at university level. To find out the students' perceptions toward library user education, 426 questionnaire surveys have been collected from the Peking University (PKU), China and the University of Tsukuba (UT),…

Lane, Amanda Kelly; Hardison, Carlton; Simon, Ariana; Andrews, Tessa C. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2019
One barrier to the adoption of evidenced-based teaching practices may be that faculty do not see teaching as an important part of their identities as professionals. Graduate school is a key time for professional identity development, and currently we know little about how doctoral students develop identities as college teachers. In this…

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…

Abreu, Paula Alvarez; Carvalho, Karina de Lima; Rabelo, Vitor Won-Held; Castro, Helena Carla – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Computational techniques have great potential to improve the teaching-learning. In this work, we used a computational strategy to visualize three-dimensional (3D) structures of proteins and DNA and help the student to comprehend biochemistry concepts such as protein structure and function, substrate, and inhibitors as well as DNA structural…

Das, Saswati; Nandi, Kajal; Baruah, Priyanki; Sarkar, Sajib K.; Goswami, Binita; Koner, Bidhan C. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Team based learning (TBL) is a time tested teaching-learning (T-L) tool involving collaborative learning but has hardly been tested for teaching clinical biochemistry to undergraduate medical students. The present study was designed to (a) compare problem solving skills of first year MBBS students after attending a TBL session on 'organ function…

Kim, Alice M.; Speed, Caroline J.; Macaulay, Janet O. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
The traditional teaching style in higher education is didactic. However, the current literature states that student learning improves when they are active players in the process, triggering the move to implement active learning within the curriculum. In accordance, Monash University (an Australian research-intensive university) introduced the…

Reich, Norbert; Wang, Yuedong – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
We investigate the effectiveness of an active learning curriculum designed for an upper division Biochemistry series at a large, public research university. The goal was to determine how effective this format was when compared to a parallel conventional course, and to see if the active learning series can be run with limited resources (one…

White, Lloyd J.; McGowan, Heath W.; McDonald, Aaron C. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
The development of new technologies and ensuing pedagogical research has led many tertiary institutions to integrate and adopt online learning strategies. The authors of this study have incorporated online learning strategies into existing educational practices of a second year anatomy course, resulting in half of the course content delivered via…

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…

Veiga, Nicolas; Luzardo, Florencia; Irving, Kenneth; Rodriguez-Ayan, Maria N.; Torres, Julia – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
As a fundamental part of their chemical education, first-year undergraduate students are substantially involved in laboratory activities. Despite the specific teaching staff choices on the main laboratory aims, students normally receive a vast amount of information during these activities. Apart from understanding theoretical content, fundamental…

Van Dam, Drew J.; Fielitz, Lynn; Coffer, Courtland Dwayne – Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, 2019
This article investigates the use of the Thayer Method (TM, also known as the flipped classroom) to teach college and university physical education classes, and proposes a modification to the method. This update to the TM will increase physical activity enjoyment and adherence.
