Gormally, Cara; Brickman, Peggy; Hallar, Brittan; Armstrong, Norris – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2011
Inquiry-based instruction is widely promoted to increase both students' conceptual understanding and their engagement in course content. What this means for day-to-day practices in the classroom is more elusive. Instructors adopting inquiry-based curricula often are unaware of the typical instructional challenges they may face. In particular,…

Brickman, Peggy; Glynn, Shawn; Graybeal, Geoffrey – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2008
Strategically introducing students to a controversial science case--before they read it, watch it, or listen to it--motivates them to learn from it and paves the way for successful discussion and debate. A strategic introduction also provides an opportunity for the instructor to demonstrate scientific reasoning and share guidelines for the…

Brickman, Peggy – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2006
This article describes how case studies have been successfully implemented in an introductory biology course of 300+ students using available technologies ranging from WebCT, used to assign students to permanent small groups (as well as assign groups to regions of a large lecture hall), to hand-held response systems (aka "clickers"), which…

Glynn, Shawn; Koballa, Thomas; Coleman, Dava; Brickman, Peggy – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2006
A professional development case in college science teaching bridges the gap between educational theory and practice. A good case poses an interesting dilemma involving instructors, students, and administrators. Case discussions can help instructors take charge of their own professional development and create a community of shared professional…

Brickman, Peggy; Ketter, Catherine A. Teare; Pereira, Monica – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2005
Although electronic instructional media are becoming increasingly prevalent in science classrooms, their worth remains unproven. Here, student perceptions and performance using CD-ROM delivery of lab materials are assessed. Numerous learning barriers that produced lower lab grades for students using a CD-ROM lab manual in comparison to a print…
