Farah, Kimberly S.; Montepare, Joann M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Our population is aging, calling for communities to be more age friendly and younger individuals to be more aware of aging issues that will impact their personal and professional lives. However, colleges provide few opportunities for students to prepare themselves for a more age-diverse world. Drawing on a new general education core curriculum…

Klemm, W. R. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Instead of flipping a conventional college course, here we consider flipping part of a conventional course into a whole new course. The idea tested here for three semesters was to split a full-featured traditional course into two linked courses: a condensed, 1-credit-hour, online mass-enrollment course on core ideas and skills paired with a…

Ellerton, Sharon; Carmona, Naydu; Tsimounis, Areti – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2016
There is an urgent need to increase K-12 science knowledge and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) preparedness for college. State and national data suggest a strong correlation between student performance in STEM subjects and student socioeconomic status, race, and ethnicity. Queensborough Community College (QCC) is situated…

King, Barbara – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2015
This study examines the within-field persistence rates of physical science/engineering (PS/E) students compared with those of students in life science, business, social science, education, and humanities. The data are drawn from a nationally representative sample of college matriculates and include students' high school and college transcript…

Vicens, Quentin; Caspersen, Michael E. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Despite extensive evidence in favor of student-centered teaching practices over traditional lecturing, most science faculty do not embrace these modes of instruction. Professional development efforts are plentiful, but they can lack in impact or scalability, or both. The factors that determine professional development quality within a research…

Metoyer, Sandra K.; Miller, Scott T.; Mount, Jennifer; Westmoreland, Sandra L. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Half of students who start college pursuing a degree in science drop out of the sciences by their senior year. This is due, in part, to low attendance and lack of preparation by the students. The failure to develop instructional strategies that actively engage students in science, however, is also a marked factor. A crucial need to reform how…

Pai, Aditi – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words. If a mere picture is worth a thousand words, how much more are "moving pictures" or videos worth? The author poses this not merely as a rhetorical question, but because she wishes to make a case for using videos in the traditional case study method. She recommends four main approaches of…

Kaiser, Bonnie Nicole; Mishler, Dennis M.; Peoples, Whitney A.; Wells, Alexis S. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
In this nascent age of massive online education, it is important to recognize that the goals and successes of a liberal arts education have been to provide an intellectual array of ideas that build critical thinking skills and to engage a new generation of students with society's great challenges and vast opportunities. Nowhere are these…

Gohardani, Omid; Gohardani, Amir S.; Dokter, Erin; Macario, Kyla – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Teaching in the 21st century requires a modern teaching practice coherent with the evolutions of the Information Age. Interestingly, teaching practices have stretched beyond an art form and into the realm of science. Following these scientific trails, one can argue that one of the greatest challenges educators currently face is to maintain student…

Powell, Nichole L.; Harmon, Brenda B. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Oxford College is a small liberal-arts intensive 2-year undergraduate division of Emory University, where inquiry-based courses are a required part of the general education program. We have developed an authentic research experience for undergraduates that mimics--as much as possible--a real undergraduate research experience. Our program provides…

Strimaitis, Anna M.; Schellinger, Jennifer; Jones, Anthony; Grooms, Jonathon; Sampson, Victor – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Students need to learn how to engage in several scientific practices in order to be considered proficient in science. Many of these practices are needed to evaluate scientific claims made in the popular media. Yet, there are few instruments available that science educators can use to assess whether students can apply what they know about…

Lukes, Laura A. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Dual-enrollment (DE) science courses offer a way to strengthen the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics pipeline between high school and college. These courses offer high school students the opportunity to experience college science in a more supported environment, allowing them to adjust to the different academic and social demands…

Poulin, Jessica; Ramamurthy, Bina; Dittmar, Katharina – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2013
Population genetics is fundamental to understanding evolutionary theory, and is taught in most introductory biology/evolution courses. Many students are unaware that understanding this topic requires pertinent knowledge of mathematics and consequently struggle with the subject. As a response to this problem, a virtual tool (Pop!World) was…
