Thomas, Glyn; Thorpe, Stephen – Interactive Learning Environments, 2019
There still appears to be a gap between what online learning promises and what it can deliver in terms of student learning. Developments in online pedagogies and professional learning appear to lag behind the developments in technology and the promised benefits of technological transformation may not be realised. In this paper, we bring together…

Browning, Fred; Moore, Kaitlyn; Campos, Jennifer – Physics Teacher, 2019
The possibility of negative temperatures on the Kelvin scale is intriguing and confusing simultaneously. This is because students are used to thinking of temperature as a measure of the internal energy of a system. While this concept is good for many systems, it does not work for all systems. Nuclear and electron spin systems, along with lasers…

Lerach, David G.; Yestness, Nissa R. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
An in-class case study is presented for use in a liberal arts core extreme weather course, designed to foster science literacy, appreciation, and critical thinking skills in nonscience majors. Students are ultimately shown the critical importance of the physical sciences in their daily lives and encouraged to consider STEM (science, technology,…

Trautman, Nancy; Manker, Jeff; Mitchell, Kiandra; Kahler, Phil – Science Teacher, 2019
In the 1990s, classes throughout the United States began participating in Classroom FeederWatch, sending data on birds they had seen at feeders in their schoolyards to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The launch of eBird in 2002 opened up new possibilities for submitting data on all types of bird species, allowing users to record and upload…

Ziffer, Julie; Morse, William; Nelson, Tyler; Nakroshis, Paul; Rudnick, Benjamin T.; Brautigam, Max; Parker, Wesley – Physics Teacher, 2019
Students with poor spatial abilities experience a barrier to academic success early in the STEM curriculum. However, Sorby et al. report that even brief training can improve spatial reasoning in students who lack them. Further, the National Research Council recommends that spatial thinking skills be taught at all educational levels. Halpern…

Iatrellis, Omiros; Kameas, Achilles; Fitsilis, Panos – Education and Information Technologies, 2019
One of the main challenges to be confronted by Higher Educational Institutions (HEI), so as to increase quality, is the provision of personalized education services in a wide range of educational settings, often beyond the course sequences historically offered to students. However, this personalization requires the continuous reconfiguration and…

Young, Julia C.; Quayle, Michelle R.; Adams, Justin W.; Bertram, John F.; McMenamin, Paul G. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
The practical aspect of human developmental biology education is often limited to the observation and use of animal models to illustrate developmental anatomy. This is due in part to the difficulty of accessing human embryonic and fetal specimens, and the sensitivity inherent to presenting these specimens as teaching materials. This report…

Roman, Tiffany A.; Racek, Jon – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
Three-dimensional (3-D) virtual environments have key affordances that can improve learning, particularly when context, culture, and pedagogical aims are aligned to a given learning situation. One challenge in detailing effective uses of 3-D virtual environments in teaching and learning contexts is that the design judgments involved are not always…

Miranda Freire, Sergio – Teaching Statistics: An International Journal for Teachers, 2019
The transition from the probability mass function for discrete random variables to the probability density function for continuous random variables is not straightforward, especially to students from the health and social sciences. An R Shiny application was created to assist the learning process of probability density function.
