McDonald, Kelly K.; Martin, Allison R.; Watters, Cody P.; Landerholm, Thomas E. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Many studies illustrate the positive influences of undergraduate research experiences on student learning, attitudes, and retention in the sciences. At our institution, over 90% of the biology majors surveyed reported a desire to participate in undergraduate research, but only 3% per year have the opportunity to work in a traditional…

Casper, Anne Marie A.; Woodbury, Jacob M.; Davis, William B.; Offerdahl, Erika G. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Recent studies have shown that sorting tasks are a useful tool both for measuring and aiding student learning as well as facilitating the transfer of knowledge to novel contexts. These tasks require students to categorize scenarios or information in new ways that facilitate connection making and deeper understanding. As such, sorting tasks…

Roberts, Jacqueline; Propsom, Pamela; Tobin, William – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
A small undergraduate liberal arts college explored a model, grounded in the literature, to develop a shared vision for its science and math general education curriculum that focuses on scientific literacy skills. This process has allowed us to produce shared general education learning goals across our eight science and math departments, conduct…

Forbes, Cory T.; Brozovic, Nicholas; Franz, Trenton E.; Lally, Diane E.; Petitt, Destini N. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The most challenging global problems of our age involve coupled human--environmental systems within the Food-Energy-Water Nexus. The undergraduate students currently in our classrooms will be tomorrow's global citizens, each of whom must be prepared to understand and reason about these challenges and ultimately make decisions about them in a…

Majetic, Cassie; Pellegrino, Catherine – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
News media reports of scientific discoveries are often oversimplified, lacking nuance and context. As a result, citizens need both science literacy and information literacy skills to both decode the science content in a media report and track down the original scientific literature that prompted the media report. This article evaluates the…

Tuthill, Matthew C.; Berestecky, John M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Studies consistently indicate that engaging students in research is successful in improving STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) retention and graduation rates. Given that nearly half of all U.S. students are enrolled in community colleges, and that 70% of those enrolled are either women or underrepresented ethnicities, these campuses…

Marrero, Meghan E.; Riccio, Jessica F.; Ben-Jacob, Marion; Canger, Anthony; Maliti, Charles – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Broadening participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers requires that underrepresented students, including women and minorities, persist in their studies and complete undergraduate and graduate degrees. Studies have shown that engaging students in undergraduate research and improving students' science…

Lundmark, Jennifer; Paradis, Jeffrey; Kapp, Micaela; Lowe, Elizabeth; Tashiro, Lynn – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
In late 2011, we created a Peer-Assisted Learning (PAL) program focused on improving student performance in high-risk STEM courses. Our PALs are modeled after the Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) program, which has been shown to provide long- and short-term benefits to both students (Chan & Bauer, 2015; Gosser, Kampeier, & Pratibha, 2010;…

Hensiek, Sarah; DeKorver, Brittland K.; Harwood, Cynthia J.; Fish, Jason; O'Shea, Kevin; Towns, Marcy – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Digital badging is an innovative method of valid, evidence-based assessment that may be used to assess hands-on skills in undergraduate science laboratories, in research laboratories, and in fieldwork. A digital badge contains information about who was awarded the badge, the criteria used, the evidence submitted, the issuer, the date issued, and…
