Borda, Emily J.; Boudreaux, Andrew; Fackler-Adams, Ben; Frazey, Paul; Julin, Sara; Pennington, Gregory; Ogle, Jared – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Passive, lecture-based forms of instruction are often ineffective in helping students develop deep conceptual understanding of scientific concepts. Student-centered forms of instruction based in a constructivist framework, where students are guided toward actively constructing their understanding, have been met with greater success. However,…

Keller, Charles – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Community colleges serve the noble mission of making higher education accessible to a broader spectrum of society than traditional 4-year institutions. A side effect of this broad access is a lower level of student preparedness for success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses. This work describes our efforts to…

Halpin, Patricia A. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2016
Nonscience majors often rely on general internet searches to locate science information. This practice can lead to misconceptions because the returned search information can be unreliable. In this article the authors describe how they used the social media site Twitter to address this problem in a general education course, BSCI 421 Diseases of the…

Hanson, Pamela K.; Stultz, Laura – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2015
Many science educators know of the pedagogical benefits of inquiry- and research-based labs, yet numerous barriers to implementation exist. In this article we describe a faculty development workshop that explored interdisciplinary and inter-institutional collaborations as potential mechanisms for overcoming barriers to curricular innovation.

Sumrall, Jeanne Lambert; Clary, Renee; Watson, Joshua C. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2015
Knowing an individual's geographic affiliation may be useful in evaluating a student's previous knowledge. To test this hypothesis, students in an online master's program were given presurveys to evaluate their previous knowledge in meteorology and geology, as well as geological and meteorological sense-of-place surveys.

Gross, Deborah; Iverson, Ellen; Willett, Gudrun; Manduca, Cathryn – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2015
This article describes two cohort programs that were used to support students from groups underrepresented in STEM fields at Carleton College. These programs were designed to support three aspects of student development: students' drive to succeed in STEM fields; students' sense of belonging in their student cohorts, in the college, in the STEM…

Cook, Kristin Leigh – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2014
Research has suggested that teaching that incorporates students' funds of knowledge can offer an authentic connection to students' lives outside the classroom (Moje et al., 2004) and should aim to enhance active participation of the learners using methods that reduce the unfamiliarity with science felt by some students. In the following…

Brownell, Sara E.; Khalfan, Waheeda; Bergmann, Dominique; Simoni, Robert – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2013
Undergraduate biology majors are often overwhelmed by and underinformed about the diversity and complexity of biological research that is conducted on research-intensive campuses. We present a program that introduces undergraduates to the diversity and scope of biological research and also provides unique teaching opportunities for graduate…
