Tripp, Brie; Voronoff, Sophia A.; Shortlidge, Erin E. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2020
A desired outcome of education reform efforts is for undergraduates to effectively integrate knowledge across disciplines in order to evaluate and address real-world issues. Yet there are few assessments designed to measure if and how students think interdisciplinarily. Here, a sample of science faculty were surveyed to understand how they…

Leupen, Sarah M.; Kephart, Kerrie L.; Hodges, Linda C. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2020
Group activities as part of active-learning pedagogies are thought to be effective in promoting student learning in part because of the quality of discussion they engender in student teams. Not much is known, however, about which instructional factors are most important in achieving productive conversation or how these factors may differ among…

Limeri, Lisa B.; Choe, Jun; Harper, Hannah G.; Martin, Hannah R.; Benton, Annaleigh; Dolan, Erin L. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2020
Whether students view intelligence as a fixed or malleable trait (i.e., their "mindset") has significant implications for their responses to failure and academic outcomes. Despite a long history of research on mindset and its growing popularity, recent meta-analyses suggest that mindset does a poor job of predicting academic outcomes for…

Tueller, Josie A.; Whitley, Kiara V.; Weber, K. Scott – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Flow cytometry is a versatile and high throughput technique for rapid and efficient biological testing. It requires a high level of conceptual, technical, and analytical skills to properly design experiments, effectively operate flow cytometry machines, and analyze the data. A lack of training and development of any of these three skills can…

Nageotte, Nichole; Buck, Gayle – Studying Teacher Education, 2020
Dialogue is a critical component of teaching, especially when considering it from a sociocultural theory of learning. An instructor's knowledge of the subject matter is critical, but not sufficient. The ability to verbally articulate that knowledge while hearing and responding to the developing ideas and knowledge of the students is necessary to…

Rowland, Susan; Gannaway, Deanne; Pedwell, Rhianna; Adams, Peter; Evans, Robyn; Bonner, Hailey; Wong, Kai Sheng – Higher Education Research and Development, 2020
Recent focus on graduate employability has exposed the inadequacies of work preparation for science students, who need an employability toolkit to navigate the modern work landscape. An established mechanism to develop students' employment awareness is Work Integrated Learning (WIL), but Australian mathematics and science students participate in…

Debad, Susan J. – National Academies Press, 2020
Student ratings have long been used by many institutions of higher education as a primary form of summative evaluation of teaching. In recent years, studies have brought into question the validity of student ratings, highlighting the need for more effective evaluation methods that recognize and reward evidence-based teaching practices. To begin to…

Yao, Guangming; Black, Kelly; Ramsdell, Michael; Skufca, Joseph – PRIMUS, 2020
Improving student success rates in introductory calculus and physics courses is critically important for our students' path in STEM fields. Many of the students who have an intuitive understanding of physics fail calculus and are pushed to delay or drop their majors in technical fields. One way of addressing this issue is by adopting a program…

Van Dusen, Ben; Nissen, Jayson – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2020
We investigated the intersectional nature of race/racism and gender/sexism in broad scale inequities in physics student learning using a critical quantitative intersectionality. To provide transparency and create a nuanced picture of learning, we problematized the measurement of equity by using two competing operationalizations of equity:…

Widyaningsih, Sri Wahyu; Yusuf, Irfan – International Journal of Higher Education, 2020
This study aims to improve the quality of learning in physics learning planning courses through the implementation of Project-Based Learning (PjBL) assisted by E-Learning through Lesson Study activities. This was qualitative research through the stages of Lesson Study activities. Subjects in this study were the 5th-semester students who program 11…

Mayer, V. V.; Varaksina, E. I. – Physics Education, 2020
To study the absorption of ultrasound in plexiglas we propose to use gadgets that are available to each student: an ultrasound humidifier, a liquid crystal display of a pad, a polaroid analyzer, a digital camera, a multimeter with thermocouple, and a stopwatch. These devices allow us to visualize a region in plexiglas where ultrasound is absorbed…

Trout, Joseph J.; Jacobsen, Tara – Physics Education, 2020
In our technology driven world today, it is extremely important to increase the science literacy of our non-science majors. At Stockton University, this goal is attempted to be accomplished through our General Studies courses. This paper describes a lab-based course in the General Studies curriculum, 'The Science of Ice Cream'. At Stockton…

Hughes, Stephen; Evason, Chris; Baldwin, Shelley; Nadarajah, Helen; Leisemann, Scott; Wright, Susan – Physics Education, 2020
STEM is about the integration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. To teach STEM effectively, students need practical examples of subject integration. A good example is the use of an electron microscope in teaching physics and biology. An electron microscope is an instrument in which the operation depends on electromagnetism and…

Ishafit, I.; Indratno, T. K.; Prabowo, Y. D. – Physics Education, 2020
The topic of electric and magnetic fields is fundamental to the physics curriculum in both high school and college. The applied aspect of this topic has triggered the rapid development of modern technology in this era. This paper reported a remote data acquisition system developed for experiments with magnetic fields by coils to support…

Kontomaris, Stylianos-Vasileios; Malamou, Anna – Physics Education, 2020
The concept of a sinusoidal wave traveling along a string is included in all secondary education physics books and as a result is being taught in undergraduate lectures around the globe. The didactic approach that follows is advantageous since it provides in a simplified way (through basic mathematical tools) a description of a disturbance that…
